Hey there! And welcome to our very first How To’s Day linky party!
The first project we thought we’d share is how we made an easy-breezy Spring wreath for our dining room. With March right around the corner, it was high time we replaced the evergreen one we’ve had hanging in there since Christmas.
It was super simple to make, and it was really fun deciding which colors and embellishments we wanted to use. We started with an inexpensive foam wreath form, and some chunky, off-white-colored yarn…
Our wreath form measures 14 inches in diameter, so it did take a little while to completely cover it. (Note: This part will go much faster if you have a second set of hands to help.)
We used hot glue to secure the beginning and end of the yarn, and after that, it was all about adding the embellishments…
(The flowers are actually hair barrettes!)
First up- a little twig we found in our backyard. We wrapped it with some fuzzy, moss green-colored yarn, and then hot glued it onto the wreath…
After that, we glued on some buttons, and added a spiral of twine to the center of the largest flower. Lastly, we attached some green and white striped ribbon to the top of the wreath so we could hang it on our screen door.
And there ya have it! A fast & fun, Spring wreath how-to!
