This took me longer than I thought it would, 3 hours! I spent a total of about $7.00 on the supplies and I had most of the things I needed. I made a yarn wrapped wreath. I warn you it is harder than you think, or maybe you did think it was but I did not! It is not perfect by no means, but I had fun making it. I ran out of yarn with a section left, so I added some burlap! It has its flaws but I love it! No reason to go buy one for $30, make something that you will have a special connection to and you will enjoy it so much more.
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
I wrapped the wreath by looping yarn, matching end to end, about 4-5 times to make thick sections. This went faster than my previous method of one line at a time. It looked messier but it got the job done. I would hot glue here and there and just wrap some ends up with the yarn. That was the bulk of my time! I then made fabric flowers out of some vintage fabric Ethan's Mimi gave to me before she passed. And one out of burlap. Placed everything the way I liked it and the wreath was complete!
I just love it! Btw, I tried taking a picture of the yarn color because it was so pretty...and on clearance! It was called Seal Brown and was a purplish brown. I can't wait to make another!
