This simple wrapped Christmas Yarn Wreath is a great way to decorate your front door without breaking the bank. Although I admit my wreath did not turn out as perfect as Everyday Beautiful’s amazing yarn wrapped Christmas
Wreath I found through Pinterest- I love the simple look!
The many yarn wrapped wreaths you find on Pinterest use the foam circle wreath shape. However, my thrifty soul simply could not spend the money! Have you seen how expensive the pre-formed foam is at Hobby Lobby?! So, to save a few bucks, I took the lid of a big hat box and cut out a circle. I used about a half a skein of yarn and an ornament meant to be hung on a tree.
Wrapping the Christmas Yarn Wreath
Yes, this is a simple wreath- but simple is not a synonym for quick. Wrapping this wreath took a surprisingly long time! I could not do it in one sitting. After about 1/3 of the wreath was wrapped my arms were incredibly sore. I decided then to set it down and just add 10-20 wraps as often as I could. So, when you attempt your own Christmas yarn wreath- I would suggest buying plush yarn versus thread or thin yarn. Unless you don’t mind spending a few days wrapping it!
I’m not a natural crafter
Crafting is not something that just comes natural to me. When I began this wreath I wondered– how do I begin?! I was not sure how to keep the yarn in place. Let me tell you what I did and what I would do next time.
What I did
I used the good-ole hot glue gun to stick the yarn to the inside of the card board wreath. It worked.
What I would do next time
I would attempt to cut a slit in the side of the cardboard- just long enough to slide the thread in to hold into place.
Additionally, I wondered the whole time I wras wrapping the cardboard- what I would do to attach the ornament.
I went back to the hot glue and it worked really well- I have not thought of a better way, so I would stick with the hot glue method.
Christmas Wreath Verdict
I love the way the Christmas Yarn Wreath turned out! I think it looks beautiful!!! It is also a basic idea that obviously can be used every season and every holiday year round. Pin-Proved-It!
