Fall Wreath….

I was visiting tatertots and jello this weekend
by visit I mean stalk for at least 1 hour!

Jen shared 25 fall wreath ideas.

I was smitten and inspired.
I have been swooning over yarn wrapped wreaths for long time
I’ve just never have had the patience to make one
today I got up the courage to try it.
I new this may be a one time only project
I had to make it neutral so I could use it over and over again.

I found a old straw wreath at goodwill last year for $1.99

Someone had removed the plastic wrapping on it so I covered it with packing tape!

I tied my yarn in a little knot around the wreath and went to wrapping.
I contemplated over just a messy look, but chose to go with clean lines instead.
After about 25 minutes of wrapping this is what I had…

then another 45 minutes later… completed!

I just tied the end of the string to where I started

Now the fun very stressful for an ADD crafter part
choosing colors and design

of course I consulted my wreath board on pinterest

I just looked around my house and found things I had laying around and came up with my colors
I also collected little odds and ends , flowers, fabric and felt that I thought cordinated

 

 

Since this wreath took so long to wrap I did not want it to be stuck to one holiday.
I chose to attach all my embellishments with pins so I can easily update it for each holiday!

 

 

 

 

 

 

So what do you think….
I am actually excited to update it for Halloween and Christmas already!
