YARN FALL WREATH MATERIALS:
- A straw wreath form (you can also use foam wreath forms)
- 1.5 skeins of yarn or as you need (you can use yarn of any color or of mixed colors)
- Artificial flowers
- Two large sheets of felt craft to make cutouts of felt leaves (choose the felt craft sheets in the colors that reflect to the colors of leaves this season)
- Hot glue gun
HOW TO MAKE THE YARN FALL WREATH
- Sketch out a leaf or several leaves of different sizes on the felt sheets and cut them out with scissors.Now, use the leaves to sketch and cut out a bunch more. Keep them aside.
- Take the wreath form and use the hot glue gun to glue one end of the yarn to a point of the wreath form. Start wrapping the yarn around the form until the entire form is covered. Now, glue the last end of the yarn to the form.
- Take the leaf cutouts and glue them to ¼-part of the wreath into a nice pattern.
- Now, use the hot glue gun to glue the flowers to embellish another ¼-part of the wreath. It will look nice if you the flower- and leaf-decorated parts are opposite to each other.
- Other decorative stuffs that you can use on the wreath are plastic animal figurines, glittering snowflakes, fake birds, mini pinecones, mini gourds, etc.
- Your yarn fall wreath is ready! You can hang it on the front door or make several small ones to hang on the walls of your living room or above the mantel. Complement the wreath with a few flower plants and a welcome mat if hung on the front door. In case of interior decoration, pair the wreaths up with flowers, accessories, and decorative lighting.
