Simple Wreath Tutorial

Nothing makes your front door look more inviting than a wreath. And our front door was looking pretty uninviting these days. My latest project was actually inspired by a tutorial to make felt flowers I found months ago on It’s The Little Things. They’re really lovely and what better way to show them off than on a wreath. All I needed to make one was some scrap felt I had from another project (you won’t need much), a foam wreath form, a ball of yarn and my trusty glue gun. I was able to make this wreath while the kids were napping peacefully one day. Yes, I am lucky enough to have my 10 month old and almost 2.5 year old nap at the same time. I feel rather fortunate to have a little quiet time midday. And rather than catching up on the 10 million other things I should be doing while my husband is deployed and we’re preparing to move (again!), I made a wreath.

Secure one end of the yarn to the wreath form with a little hot glue and wrap the yarn around the form. Once you reach the beginning, secure the end with some more hot glue.
