Spring Wreath

March 29, 2014

A cheerful spring wreath for any door/wall/window, etc.

 

It’s crazy to think that I didn’t do any decorating for Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day or Easter this year. My mind is most definitely elsewhere. Now that the nursery is 95% done, I got the craft bug again. I made this cheerful yarn wreath the other day. It took all of 20 minutes and the only thing I needed to buy was the yarn.

 

I used one skein of yarn which was 100 yards. Originally I wanted more of a messy look with the yarn overlapping, but I wasn’t sure how much yarn I would need and I didn’t feel like going back to the store for another skein. To be safe, I wrapped each loop tightly against the previous loop. In the end I had a few feet of yarn left over so I wrapped the extra on top of the other loops. Moral of the story, if you want more of a messy look, I would advise you to get 2 skeins of yarn.
