Yarn Wreath Supplies Needed
For today’s wreath project, we are actually going to use a couple of different types of yarn. It is easy to say “hello” to all of your guests with this front door wreath that is so much fun for summer.
So, grab a few supplies and whip this one up in no time at all!
How To Make A Door Wreath
This yarn wreath is a breeze to pull together. Just follow these simple instructions!
Start by wrapping your wreath form with one of the colors of yarn. You want to wrap the form tightly (almost overlapping) so that no portion of the wreath form shows through.
Here, I am using a jersey yarn that is a bit thicker. However, any yarn will work for this part. Just keep it tight as you roll!
Also, be sure to secure the ends of your yarn with hot glue when you start or end your wrap. This will prevent the yarn from coming undone and unraveling.
Next, we need to make the word that will go on top of the wreath. Use your jewelry pliers to form a word out of the wire. I found that 20 gauge wire works best for this project.
Then, it’s time to start wrapping your yarn around the wire to complete your word. Secure your ends with hot glue.
Note: In some places, I wrapped the yarn around two thicknesses of wire at the same time. This gave the word a more finished appearance.
Once your word is completely wrapped, all that’s left is to just add it to your wreath form with a bit of hot glue.
Your yarn wreath is ready to hang on your front door to welcome all those guests!
Once you learn how to make a door wreath, you are sure to be hooked! It’s an easy craft to do with a high payoff…what more could you ask for?! Ever since I started making wreaths, I’ve enjoyed making them for every season as well as some holidays.
