This wreath exudes a warm, fuzzy welcome as it hangs on my front door. Pure fun! What a happy, cozy wreath for frosty winter days. And I just loved making it! Even if you are not a crafter, you can make this easy-to-put-together wreath! If you can roll yarn around a styrofoam ball YOU CAN DO IT!!!! And after it hangs on my front door for the winter season I’ll unravel some of the yarn and let the birdies use some it to build their nests.
Let’s get started and make a charming winter wreath…
STONEGABLE YARN BALL WREATH
This wreath is not rocket science. Add more, use less… you can make it your own.
- styrofoam balls in 3 sizes (I used 3 inch, 2 inch and 1 inch balls. Anything close would be fine). 5 large, 12 medium, 18 small. Do not get smooth styrofoam, they are almost impossible to wrap… I tried! Use the standard type of styrofoam.
- yarn in different colors and textures. I used 1 skein for each color. My wreath colors are black, dark gray, light gray, sparkle gray, cream and white. I used colors that would look best on my front door.
- a few burlap balls, for tutorial click HERE. These are optional, but I think they give the wreath nice texture
- snowy pinecones
- 1 flat 14 inch styrofoam wreath
- burlap strips (You can buy burlap in rolls or cut your own)
- metal u U pins
- hot glue gun
1. Start by wrapping burlap ribbon or strips around the entire wreath. Secure the end of the burlap with a U pin or hot glue.
2. I chose 5 different yarn colors. I also chose a fun white fuzzy yarn. It reminded me of snow! Wrap the styrofoam balls with just enough yarn to cover the all the styrofoam. Tuck the end of the yarn under the wrapped yarn to secure. Wrap all the balls.
3. Use the U pins or hot glue (I used both) to arrange and secure the yarn balls onto the wreath. Also tuck a pinecone and burlap ball in your wreath here and there.
So, so easy!!! There is really no right or wrong way of arranging the yarn balls. Just snuggle them together.
This is a wreath that will warm the hearts of all who visit!
