Want a quick way to spruce up the indoors for spring? You can make your own wreath! This indoor spring wreath craft is easy to create, featuring fuzzy yarn in pretty spring colors, a ruffled ribbon hanger, and felt flower embellishments. I normally post only kids’ activities and crafts, but sometimes it feels good to do a little mom project, too, and I just love how this one turned out.
Spring Wreath Craft
Easy Spring Wreath Craft using Yarn
*I bought my wreath form and yarn at Wal-mart and my ribbon and felt flowers at Michael’s.
1. Start by wrapping your yarn around your wreath form. To start it off, lay a piece of the beginning yarn on the wreath form and cover it as you wrap. That’ll keep it from unraveling as you go.
To wrap the yarn, the best way I found was to position the wreath form between my knees, and pass the whole bundle of yarn through the loop 2-3 times keeping the wrapped yarn pulled tight. Then I used my fingers to push the loops of yarn together tightly so the wreath form was completely hidden under the yarn wraps.
Continue by wrapping 2-3 more times. Then push the loops tightly together. Repeat. To end the yarn when you’ve finished wrapping the entire wreath, I simply loosened a few of the final loops, slipped the end of the yarn under and pulled tightly. I added one little knot to ensure it wouldn’t come undone and snipped the end.
2. Next, adorn your wreath however you would like. I added 2 pink felt flower embellishments from Martha Stewart Crafts.
The flowers had an adhesive, sticker-like backing, so I simply stuck them on. If they become loose or fall off, I’ll attach them in a more permanent way with hot glue or pins. I like the idea of being able to change out the adornments to create various looks for the wreath though! You could also make your own felt flowers.
3. Add a ribbon. I used a ruffle ribbon. Simply run it through the center of the wreath, tie the ends of the ribbon in a knot at whatever length you want, and hang it. I hung mine from an upside down hook on the inside of my pantry door.
I have called this wreath easy because I think you should be able to make it in under half an hour. To tell you the honest truth though, this wreath took me ALL week! I’m not sure what happened, but I would wrap for 30 seconds and then have to untangle knots for 30 minutes. It was crazy. Hope you have better luck with your yarn than I did. That being said, I am ultra pleased with how the wreath turned out!
I love how soft it looks and feels.
Isn’t it pretty?
