How-To: DIY Yarn Wreath

Since fall is our favorite season, I love pinning great DIY projects and crafts on Pinterest! Through my Pinterest travels, I discovered an easy DIY yarn wreath project from Bullfrogs and Bulldogs (love the name)! I figured this would be easy enough, so I gathered the few items required – yarn, foam wreath and flower accents – and got started right away. I was able to finish this in just an hour or so over the course of two evenings.

Here’s what you’ll need to make your own DIY yarn wreath:

  1. Your choice of yarn colors (you could do this for any season, but we’re doing fall right now)!
  2. Foam wreath
  3. Flower accents (the original tutorial ‘DIY’d’ the flowers, but I just snagged these pre-made ones at Michael’s)
  4. Scissors
  5. Hot glue gun

You start by simply wrapping yarn around the foam wreath. Start with one color and continue your pattern all the way around, keeping each color about 2 – 3 inches apart. You could use any amount of colors, but I opted for three.

To transition from one color to another, I just tied the one color onto the next to make a little knot and proceeded to wrap.

Once you’ve made it all the way around the wreath, tuck the last strand of yarn somewhere or glue it down for reinforcement. Then, just use a bit of hot glue to add your flower accents and you’re all set!

I chose fall-like colors so I could keep my wreath hanging right through Thanksgiving, but you could do a Halloween-inspired wreath or even start thinking about Christmas! This DIY yarn wreath was so easy and the results, in my opinion, are pretty professional – looks like something you’d pay a good amount of money for if you bought it pre-made.
