Two Tone Yarn Wreath

I have seen a few of these floating around blogland lately and I decided to make my own. I am ashamed to admit that until I made this baby, I still had an evergreen wreath up on our front door. For someone who is wreath obsessed, such as myself, this is an abomination. This was super simple and fairly cheap. A few men from church today stopped by and I heard them say how nice the wreath was as they walked in. For a bunch of men to notice I feel like it must be decent.

I couldn't find a two-tone yarn that I loved so I decided to buy two and mix it up. Luckily, yarn was on sale at JoAnn's this week and I got the giant One Pound yarn for $5.99 and the small tan/gray yarn for $2.79. I, also, got the beads for $2.99 and the form for $3.99.


First I wrapped the lighter color around the form leaving the plastic on. 


Then I wrapped the teal around making sure you couldn't see any more of the form. 


Then I cut up the bead garland and just stuck it in until it looked cute. 



I think it looks nice and springy. What do you think?

Hi Meg,

This is Mel from Junkin' Junky.
I saw your comment that you left on Stephanie-Lyn's basket project and wanted to let you know that the cricut can do anything the shilouette can do. If you don't already have the Sure Cuts A Lot software, get it! It's fantastic and allows you to copy/trace and jpg or png image and then cut it out on your cricut.

I have no affiliation with SCAL, just someone that thought you might enjoy my suggestion.
My latest post (a Union Jack cushion) was made by tracing a jpg in SCAL and cutting it out with my cricut, using freezer paper.

I hope I have helped in some small way.

Mel

LOVE THIS!! It's so simple, but it looks expensive!

The Loops said...

Mel- you have helped in a huge way! I'm going to dl the software as soon as I get home!

Mel said...

I'm so glad :)

Let me know if you need any help. I'm not an expert and have probably not recognized all it can do myself, but what I know I'll gladly share. Youtube was a great resource. lol

There are also lots of blogs where people offer their svg's for free. I have a few to offer myself if you find any of mine that you want.


have a great day.
