A few weeks ago summer came here in Washington. It did not last very long. Fall is here now. It has been raining and the temperature has dropped.
I was looking forward to this season, I think summer was long enough.
I wanted to make a wreath to hang by the door (I can't hang it on the door) that felt like fall.
I am loving all the yarn wreaths I have been seeing so that is what I made.
Super easy to make. All you do is wrap the yarn around the wreath. I did it very smooth and even but you can do it any way. I think messy looks good too. Wrapping this wreath took me a LONG time. I used hot glue to hold the start and the finish.
Once it was wrapped I cut out a bunch of squares of felt. Diamonds would have been better but I was not about to measure anything. (This wreath has been in progress for two plus weeks, just needed it done) I alternated the colors and used a dot of glue to hold them in place until I wrapped it.
I wrapped the yarn in both directions, that is what gives the argyle look.
I like the way it turned out. If it was a bigger wreath form I would add something to it like this owl wreath. I am super glad I pinned it when I did because it is not there anymore:(
There are so many awesome wreaths out there. Be sure and check out my wreath board.
And now, just for fun...
Love having chickens!
