Happy Friday everyone. Feeling glad for the warmer weather!
One of my projects for this year is to make a wreath for my front door for every month of the year. A tall task so I'm crossing my fingers I'd be able to get this accomplished. For January, I decided to make a "winter themed" wreath. Here's what I made...
thank you to Pinterest, I was able to gather so many different ideas that I incorporated in my wreath. To follow me on Pinterest, you can always click on the red Pinterest banner on my side bar. :)
foam circle and white felt for my flowers. I also used some twigs to give it that natural look.
What you'll need...
Foam circle or plumbing/pipe insulation. Found this trick here via Pinterest. It's cheaper than foam circles at the craft store. *wink*
Yarn (one big skein will do)
Felt, about 1/4 yard
These insulation tubes can be found at the Plumbing aisle of your hardware stores.
First, peel of the sticky tabs to close off your tube.
3. Wrap the yarn around the wreath. This part is a bit time consuming,especially if you have a big wreath to wrap. I did mine while overseeing my son do homework and while watching TV. Secure your ends with glue gun or tying the ends together into a knot.
5. Then I folded the feld in half and started to roll it into a bun.
6. Then I adhered the ends with some glue gun.
7. Then my daughter and I went to the backyard and gathered some twigs.
8. Next, I assembled the wreath. I placed the twigs first, gluing it to the wreath and then adhering the felt flowers.
And here's where our wreath is displayed right now...
thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.
Till next time,
