This DIY neutral yarn wreath is the perfect base for any season, allowing you the opportunity to get creative with your attachments. We're showing you two ways to update this yarn wreath for spring or summer, with some inexpensive and cute materials!

Supplies

Wreath

For the wreath: 

  • 1 Styrofoam or straw wreath form (we used a 14-inch one)

Spring wreath

For the April add-on: 

  • Fake flowers

  • Large potpourri nuts (like these)
  • White paint

To make the wreath

1

Wrap the wreath in yarn

To make the wreath, untangle all of the yarn and tie a little knot around the wreath form (so you have a place to start).
