Valentine’s Day Yarn Wreath

 

This is a sweet way to use up that extra yarn you have leftover from that baby blanket you knitted for a friend, or scarf you crocheted last month. Um, I personally didn’t do any of those things, but I did have leftover yarn from last year’s projects. Lucky for me it was in beautiful hues of  pink and coral and great for this Valentine’s Day wreath. What I love about this wreath is it is something you can do while relaxing watching The Bachelor. For all of you closet The Bachelor lovers out there, I’m here to tell you it’s okay to come out with it. You’re amongst friends here.

Not into Valentine’s Day so much? That’s cool. Turn this into a St. Patrick’s Day or Easter wreath using coordinating colors. When Fall comes back around, this is a great way to celebrate Halloween, Thanksgiving or Christmas, or whatever Holiday you love to decorate for. Have fun with it.

What you’ll need. A Styrofoam wreath (The wreath I used was 14″ in diameter), yarn, felt, roving wool (optional), ribbon, craft glue.

Begin winding yarn around the wreath, tucking the tail under wrapped yarn (will need it again towards the end). As you’re winding the yarn, pull and push yarn close together, closing any visible gaps of Styrofoam.

Once you reach the end, pull beginning tail out and tie a knot with it using the ending yarn. Trim tail with a pair of scissors.

Cut heart shapes out of felt, in different sizes. Make as many or little as you’d like.

Optional – To give the hearts a 3D look, add a small amount of roving wool (in the same color as the felt) and using a foam block and roving needle, jabbing wool into heart.

Use ribbon to use to hang wreath.
