DIY Yarn Wreath

I've been seeing these awesome yarn wreaths pop up all over the internet this year, and this last month, I've seen them in both my DIY magazine and in my mom's Better Homes and Gardens mag.

You know how I obsessed I am with all things crafts, so I decided to give it a whirl.

After a stop at Joannes, I settled into my spot on the couch, raided my yarn stash and got to work. I watched two Christmas movies as I worked on it. It's tedious work, wrapping the yarn in and out of the wreath, but I like things like that.

The next morning, I finished the flower decals, and had a run in with the hot glue gun in the process. The tip of my left ring finger is sporting a nice and tender blister from when I flailed my arm and accidentally touched the tip of the glue gun. I've never had the glue actually SEAR itself to my skin before, so much so that I couldn't just peal it off quick like usual. I had to run it under cold water for a minute or two and then carefully detach it from my skin. I'm still scarred from it, emotionally.

These wreaths can be made as neatly or as haphazardly as you feel like making them. They can be made for specific seasons or holidays, or as an everyday piece of d├ęcor in your home. Ours is now gracing our front door, to remind me every time I come home that it's CHRISTMAS TIME!

This week, a friend of mine and I are going to be crafting some wreaths again. This time, I'm going to make a summer-inspired wreath.
