Today we are going to learn how to make a door wreath. 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. Grab a few supplies and whip this one up in no time at all!
Supplies to make a yarn wreath:
- Wreath form
- Yarn in two colors
- 20 gauge wire
- Jewelry pliers
- Hot glue and a glue gun
How to make a door wreath:
Start by wrapping your wreath form with one of the colors of yarn. You want to wrap this tightly so that no portion of the wreath form shows through. I am actually using a jersey yarn that is a bit thicker but any yarn will work for this. Be sure to secure the ends of your yarn with hot glue when you start or end your wrap.
Then 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 start wrapping your yarn around the wire to complete your word. Secure your ends with hot glue. In some places, you will note that 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, then 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! I know that I love making wreaths for every season.
I love this particular wreath because all of these supplies are so inexpensive. When a project is cute as well as affordable, it is definitely a win-win!
So, will you be making your own version of this wreath? Remember that you can change up the colors as well as the word on the front to be whatever you would like!
