I’m getting a jump start on a few little Christmas projects.
To make this yarn wreath, start with at least 3 different colored and textured yarns. If you’re lucky, you might have some yarn stashed in your craft closet somewhere. I also bought Styrofoam balls in 3 different sizes.
Start wrapping the yarn around the Styrofoam balls in different directions to simulate an actual yarn ball. Use a dot of hot glue to seal the end of your yarn in place.
I was on the fence about using hot glue to attach the yarn balls to the wire wreath. I always believe that nothing can be too secure. I was thinking of wiring it all together, but after gluing one ball to the wire, I found that it was secure enough to carry on.
I started placing the large balls first and then scattered the other sized yarn balls along with 2 different sized glass Christmas bulbs, trying not to be too symmetrical. I added a little glittered eucalyptus to finish off some small spaces as finishing touches.
It’s the perfect color for my kitchen!
Thanks for reading.
