Hi friends! I hope you are all enjoying the holidays. We have a very sick little boy. Noah was diagnosed with strep throat on Monday morning and he just doesn’t seem to be getting any better. I took him back to the doctor last night. They gave him pain medication just so he could drink water. I’m so sad for him, especially since he had to miss school this week. (such a fun week for all students.)
So, I’m late with my Handmade posts but better late than never.
This particular post isn’t necessarily a tutorial but more a resource for those of you who are good with a glue gun and not so much the sewing machine. (like me!)
Last weekend, my girlfriends and I had our annual handmade gift exchange. I decided to make them all yarn wreaths. They were pretty fun to make (sometimes tedious) but definitely easy. Also, the sky is the limit with what you can do with these!
Here is a simple tip for you. The thicker the yarn, the quicker the wrapping process goes.
Aren’t these cute? So simple, cheap and very trendy right now!
Here’s a great post on how to make these. (and felt flowers, too!)
If you’re wondering how to make fabric flowers, here is a great tutorial!
And yet another post on making cute felt flowers.
And you can even make yarn Christmas trees! (I have the supplies for this in a bag in my garage the only thing I’m missing is time to make it. Perhaps there’s some in the bag?!)
Back to the wreaths, you can hang them using basically anything. I love to collect interesting fabrics, so I went to my stash and cut a 12 x 1.5 inch piece. I wanted to make it shabby (to hide my uneven cutting skills) so I just began pulling the threads from one end down to achieve the purposefully messy look. I love the purposefully messy look.
So tell me, which wreath is your favorite?
