I think this past winter has been having many of us aching for summer days and lots of flowers. Every year I’m eager for flowers and colors! This seems even more necessary as we come out of spring and everyone yearns for sunshine and color. A wreath is a great way to bring summer into the home. This yarn wrapped wreath is such a quick project to make and very easy.
You can use any type of greenery and your favorite flowers. I used some fake peonies which I just love. I also wrapped the embroidery hoop in a thick weight yarn to add some texture and to hide the hoop. This is similar to my thankful craft wreath from last fall.
Supplies needed to make your own yarn wrapped wreath:
- Large Embroidery Hoop
- Super Bulky Yarn (I used mushroom)
- Faux Flowers
- Fill-in Greenery Picks
- Floral Wire
First off, grab your hoop and just start wrapping it with the yarn.
Make sure to tie it at the beginning and tie it off at the end. Next, cut your flower stems down to be much shorter. Then do a flat layout of your greenery and flowers to determine where you want them to be. I placed my greenery under the flowers. I did a spray of boxwood greenery on one side and then some facing the other direction on the other side.
After you determine the layout, place the greenery on first and use wire to wrap around the greenery to hold it on. After the greenery is attached, then attach the flowers one at time. Wrap the short flower stems around the embroidery home to help hold.
