Blue & Purple Spring Wreath


We have been having record breaking warm weather here in Ohio which has been giving me Spring Fever! So I decided to jump on the yarn wreath bandwagon and make a spring one.



What you need:

  • Styrofoam wreath (or whatever material you find)
  • Yarn
  • Felt 
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun
  • Ribbon (optional for hanging)

Ignore the needle and thread. I was going to make two different types of flowers but I didn't like how one turned out.


Attach your yarn to the wreath using a dab of hot glue. Then wrap, wrap, wrap! It will take a while to wrap the yarn around your wreath. Be sure to keep the yarn tight and have patience!



I decorated my wreath with blue and purple flowers. I love those colors and for me they scream Spring! I learn how to make the flowers from this blog post (which I found on Pinterest!) but I changed it a bit.

First cut out a circle from your felt. It doesn't have to be perfect, in fact I thought the best flowers came from the most awkward circle.

Then cut the circle into a spiral. Take the end that was the center of the circle and roll up the felt. Finish with a dab of hot glue at the other end.



Now you have some super cute flowers!



I made a whole bunch of flowers and attached them to my wreath where I thought they looked good using hot glue.



Yay! I love how it turned out. Unfortunately the pictures aren't so good because I took them inside at night, oh well. I'm sure this will be my first of many, many wreaths... so look out for them!
