DIY yarn wreath with attachments
Love changing your wreaths by season, but can't afford to buy a new one each time? Why not make one yarn wreath that you can change with each new season with fun add-ons?
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!
For the wreath:
- 1 Styrofoam or straw wreath form (we used a 14-inch one)
- Neutral colored yarn (about one spool)
For the April add-on:
- Fake flowers
- Wire scissors
- Felt flowers
For the May add-on:
- Large potpourri nuts (like these)
- White paint
- Blue spray paint
- White felt flowers
To make the wreath
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).
Then start tightly wrapping the yarn all around the wreath. Note: This will take about two hours, so give yourself plenty of time and breaks!
Cut off loose ends and tie
Cut off any loose ends and tuck the extra string into the others.
To make an April spring flowers wreath
Cut flowers with wire cutters
Using wire scissors, cut the buds off the flowers, leaving a little bit of a peak so you can attach it to the wreath.
Gently stick the flowers into the Styrofoam (you may need to push some of the yarn aside so you can stick it in).
Attach flowers to the wreath
Pull back the adhesive of the felt flowers and stick those next to the wire flowers.
To make the May beach wreath
Paint two nuts white and two nuts blue
Place four tan nuts aside. Using the white paint, carefully paint two nuts with white paint.
Set aside and let dry. Paint two other nuts and spray with blue paint.
Glue and attach the nuts
Spray paint until fully coated and let dry. Once nuts are dry, glue on the wreath in an alternating pattern with the felt flowers.
