Make your very own Welcome Spring Wreath.

Thursday, April 19th, 2012

Bring some of that springtime beauty into your home with this easy craft. We made this beautiful Spring wreath in an hour and for less than $20! All you need are some simple craft materials and a little imagination.

 

Supplies you will need:

  • Styrofoam Wreath
  • Thick yarn
  • Paper or fabric flowers – Use colors that coordinate with your yarn for the best look.
  • Straight pins  – The ones with pearls on the end work best.
  • Ribbon in any color
  • Thick paper
  • Color pencils
  • Scissors
  • Scotch tape

 

First, take your yarn and secure the end to the Styrofoam wreath with a straight pin.  Begin to wrap the yarn around and around the wreath, making sure each new wrap is touching the last.  You must also try not to wrap the yarn too tight or it will have less loft and look flat.  Every three inches or so place a strait pin into the yarn to ensure it doesn’t move. When starting with a new skein of yarn, slightly overlap the ends, placing a strait pin through both. Continue wrapping.  When the whole wreath is covered with yarn, cut and secure the end with a pin.

Next place flowers on the wreath. Stick a pearl covered straight pin through the center of the flower and secure it to a spot on the wreath.

To make the hanger, cut a 46” piece of ribbon. Pull it through the center of the wreath then tie a knot half way up the ribbon.  Where the knot is, tie a simple bow.  Place a pin in the ribbon where it meets the wreath. This will make sure it doesn’t slide around.

 

Finally, make your welcome Spring sign.  Use a heavy piece of paper and write your message and decorate with colored pencils.  Cut it into the shape of a flag.  Secure one end onto a pin with a little scotch tape and place it into the wreath wherever you like.

 

Now find a place in your home in need of some springtime love.
