It’s that time of year. The flowers are starting to bloom, the grass is starting to grow and everything is fresh and new. This pretty wreath the perfect way to celebrate Spring – whether you hang it on the front door or inside the house.
If you’re on Pinterest, you’ve probably seen all of your friends pinning pictures of this adorable Spring Wreath. I saw it last week and just had to make one for myself.
I bought everything I used at Joann Fabric & Crafts. Here are the materials:
- 12 inch foam wreath
- 2 packages of Lion Brand Fun Fur Yarn in Lime (#320-194)
- Wright’s Large Pink Daisy trim
- Long Pearlized Pink Pins (1.5″)
The first part takes a long time to complete, but is easy and can be done while you watch tv or sit in carpool. Take one end of the yarn and tie it onto the foam wreath. Then start wrapping the yarn around the wreath.
You’ll keep wrapping and wrapping all the way around the wreath.
After wrapping carefully for a while, I started just going really quickly and then stopping periodically to push the wrapped yarn closer together. I did this over and over until I’d gone around the wreath completely. It made the work a lot quicker and looked just as good.
I used about 1 1/2 packages of the fun yard. It might be possible to use only one package if you spread the yard out more, but then the wreath won’t be as fluffy.
Once the wreath is completely wrapped, tie off or tuck in the end of the yarn. Now the wreath is ready for the embellishments.
Unwrap the Daisy trim and cut each flower apart from the others.
Then take a long pearlized pin and push it down through the pink center of the daisy.
Place the daisy on the wreath by pushing the pin into the foam. Add as many daisies as you’d like. For a 12 inch wreath, I used 28 daisies.
Next, I added the little sign that says “Bare Feet Welcome”. It’s just written on plain white paper, cut out and taped onto a toothpick. I pushed the toothpick into the foam wreath.
I used pink ribbon to hang the wreath up on our front door. Here’s how my new Spring Wreath looked when finished:
