Saw It, Pinned It, Did It!

12/06/2012

Well, better late than never! My intentions were to have this post scheduled and up before noon today. As we can all see... plans changed. But good news, I'm still linking up for Saw It, Pinned It, Did It with Stephanie and Katie

I LOVE all things Christmas so of course as soon as I saw this Christmas yarn wreath I was all about it! Plus I've been saving the foam tubing from our last plumbing purchase for awhile now! Can't let a good thing go to waste! ;)

What you will need: 
1. Foam tubing from the plumbing department or another foam/straw wreath 
{Lowes, Home Depot, Michael's or Hobby Lobby}
2. 2 or 3 sheets of felt {any craft store}
3. Christmas berries {Christmas Tree Shops}
4. Scissors
5. Hot glue gun
6. Yarn

Steps: 
-If using plumbing tube, tape together using duct tape
-Wrap wreath completely using yarn of your choice {I did mine while watching the Ellen Show! I was done about half way through!}
-Trace spirals on felt using a pencil {they don't have to be perfect}
-Cut spirals out and then begin to roll them up starting from larger end {these will make the shape of a rose}
-Hot glue berries and felt roses onto the yarn wreath
-Let dry and TA-DA!!!!! 

Here is my finished product! A little different and {less pretty} from the original but still, a simple, easy and fun DIY yarn wreath! 

Hope you like! Now go LINK UP! :)

  1. Love your wreath! You did such an awesome job! I've seen similar ones, but haven't attempted it - it just looks so intimidating. This year, we bought a garland one and decorated that. I made a bow for it (which I think turned out pretty darn good, if I do say so myself) but that's about it! I seriously love how your flowers turned out, and with the berries/twigs - it's BEAUTIFUL! :)

  2. BEAUTIFUL! How did you get the plumbing tube not to kink? Everytime I have tried using them, they always kink?
