Holiday Wreath

Now that I can breathe and have recovered slightly from Chatty, I wanted and needed to do something to get in the holiday spirit! Of course, what better project than a holiday wreath! 

Here is what you need...
  • A styrofoam ring (I got mine for $1 at Dollar Tree)
  • Yarn
  • Masking Tape
  • Felt
  • Burlap  

 Start by taping the yarn to the back of the ring.

 Now begin wrapping... this will take about 45 minutes just to let you know.  Turn on one of your favorite shows, kick back and wrap. 

I cut two long burlap rectangles and formed each side of the bow. I then cut one smaller strip and wrapped it around the ring and center of the bow.  Secure it on the backside with straight pins. (oh yeah, you'll need those too) 

Cut out your choice and number of felt flowers.  I love these and they resemble poinsettias. 

And there is your mini wreath! I loved the way it turned out, but the husband said it needed to be bigger for our front door. So...

I grabbed two twigs from outside and secured the ring in the center of the larger wreath. 

~Happy Holidays~
