As I mention on my previous post Fall is Here, I attempted to make my own wreath yesterday. Now if you don’t know me, I’m not the most crafty on the block or creative. I always want to try but don’t have the courage to. Silly, right? Well, I went for it and made my own wreath for Fall. Pinterest gave me lots of ideas and inspiration. Through Pinterest I found a wonderful site with tutorial on wreath making. I recommended her site for a go to if you plan on making your own, http://www.danielleburkleo.com/2010/10/diy-yarn-wreath-with-felt-flowers.html.
Here is the before, I chose a golden brown color yarn. Thought it was great choice for Fall.
Here is the wreath after wrapping the yarn around. I used all the yarn and it did take quite some time to accomplish. Also a little warning, the yarn will get tangled often in the process. I cannot tell you how many times the yarn ended up in knots. Now maybe it was just me but it was making the process longer.
Now I will be honest, I was feeling a bit intimidated by making felt flowers. Just looking at them I thought it was going to be a tough task. And what do you know? It wasn’t that difficult and was much easier has I made more.
Add some red flowers too.
I am more than pleased with my end product. Overall the whole project took about 4 hours, which I wasn’t expecting either. It was a great use of boring time during my kids nap time. I have another wreath planned for today as well. Maybe I will start making a business out of it, make some extra money. Haha…yea, right!?!
Not only did I make a wreath but I put up my decor all around the inside and outside of the house. Fall mode was definitely in the air…
