.:Tutorial Tuesday - Autumn Yarn Wreath:.

Go here to enter the Cait+Create giveaway.


Let me apologize in advance for the quality of pictures in this post. I'm no photographer normally, but I try to take decent pictures to share with ya'll. But when I made this project, I was crafting with my friend, so I just took flashy pictures as I went along, chatting and chowing down on candy corn. We can still be friends, right?

I have seen this argyle wreath all over pinterest, and decided it would be the perfect fall wreath for my front door! Plus, it is super easy, and you can make it for decently cheap!

Here's what you need:

- foam wreath (I used a coupon to get mine at Hobby Lobby, they can be pricey)
- felt
- yarn
- hot glue/gun


For the main part of your wreath, take your felt and cut it, width wise across the sheet, into two to two and a half inch strips.


Wrap them around your wreath, hot gluing them down.


Here's what it looks like when you've done your entire wreath.


Cut squares of felt for your argyle pattern. Lay them out around your wreath before you glue anything to make sure that your pattern will work out.


Glue them down.


Wrap a string of yarn around your wreath, going over the middle of each square.


After I had done this, I flipped it over and put a dab of hot glue on the yarn on each place where it touched the wreath to help hold it in place.


Repeat with another string of yarn, crossing over your first piece of yarn. I again did hot glue on the back.


Make some flowers (I made some like I showed in this post) and glue them to your wreath.

Tie some coordinating ribbon around your wreath, and hang it on your door for all to admire!


What colors would you make your wreath in?
