Spring Wreath

I've had this wreath on my front door since Christmas.  Shameful!  I haven't wanted to take it down because I love having a wreath on my door, but I haven't found a replacement or made one until Saturday.  Friday I went to JoAnn's and bought one wreath, one skein of yarn, and a couple of felt squares.  (All supplies cost less than $10.  My kind of craft!)

Saturday was a rainy indoor day here at MOM West Coast as well as a sick day for both of my kids and my husband.  Therefore I declared to myself that it was a craft day.  The results...


A new Spring Wreath for my front door.  I couldn't be happier.  I wanted my door dressed up with something bright and colorful, and I think I successfully achieved my goal.  I used 5 different felt flower tutorials.  On Saturday morning I googled "felt flower tutorials" and found lots of them.  I chose this one, this one, this one, this one, and this one.  How do you like those links?!  I personally love them.



I used a straw wreath as my base.  The first time I made a yarn covered wreath I used a skinnier, styrofoam wreath form, and I had to use 3 skeins of yarn to get it to be as thick as I wanted it to be.  This time I went for the straw wreath, and it only needed 1 skein of yarn, and it took me under an hour to wrap all the yarn around the wreath form.



All the flowers are attached to the wreath with pins.  Simple enough.  I also got to use some of my fancy buttons that I picked up while at Dongdemoon Market in Seoul last Spring.



I'm so happy Spring is here, and we should hopefully have Spring like weather this week.  It's not suppose to rain all week.  Yea!!

It's so cute, I want one!! Ironically, I was just this weekend thinking of your last yarn wrapped wreath, and wondering how I could make one similar with a springtime flair. Looks like you answered my questions! I'll have to go make one.

Love the felt flowers!! I'm going to steal some of those tutorial ideas and try and make them smaller for little girly hair clips. They are darling.
