Vintage Post: Winter Wreath

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

Here's an oldie but a goodie....the winter wreath I made back in 2010. I'm in the process of making another one for this year, but just had to re-post this one because I still love how it turned out!


I recently came across this yarn wreath tutorial and had to try it!  My fall wreath had been hanging on the door for a little too long. This was so cheap and simple to do and I love how it turned out!


I decided not to make it overly "Christmasy" so that I can have it out for most of the winter.



I had never made felt flowers like this before and I really love how they turned out.  I plan to make more using this method and add them to other projects.  I also picked up some of these white berries at Joann's for $1. I think they really add the finishing touch to the wreath.

  13. I stumbled upon your blog and LOVE your winter wreath. I'd love to try to recreate this myself but I'm having a hard time finding the right color yarn. Yours looks like a silvery blue. Could you tell me which brand/color you used?

  14. Awesome! If I can ask...what type of wreath did you use? I mean, I've see these wreaths done using the wire wreath form, but I have a small round wooden wreath form (from Michael's) as well as a woven wreath form using a sort of basket'ish material (a Dollar Tree special...ha) & I was just innately curious as to what you preferred!
