This is Day 8 of Twleve Days of Gifts Kids Can Make!
I’ve been wanting to make a yarn wreath for a while – and when I saw one on the Anthropologie website, I was inspired to finally do it! I chose this yarn specifically because it was similar to the one on their site, but you could make this in so many different colors (and multiple kinds of yarn) that would be suitable for any time of year. This would also be a great use of scrap yarn you have left over from other projects!
Here’s the original inspiration for a whopping $148 on Anthropologie. Yeah. Right.
What You Need to Make This Yarn Wreath
Yarn – I used Bamboo Spun brand in Rose Camo found at Hobby Lobby.
A wreath form – I got mine at the dollar store.
How to Make This Yarn Wreath
It’s important to pull the yarn end from the inside of the skein, not the outside – trust me, it will make it much easier to wrap!
Simply tie the yarn around the wreath form and start wrapping!
It will work up faster if you wrap several loops at a time and then push them close together.
When you are done, tie off the yarn and trim the ends. Then wrap it up with a pretty bow to give it to grandma, mom, or it would make a great teacher gift, too!
