How to Make a Pretty Christmas Wreath from Yarn

yarn wreath

I didn’t come up with this idea. I originally found it in “All You” magazine.But I did mine a little differently. Instead of just regular yarn, I used the fuzzy, wavy kind.

What you will need:

  • A Styrofoam wreath (I used the 16 inch size)
  • A ruler
  • Yarn in two colors
  • clear tape
  • marker
  • scissors
  • straight pins
  • A pre-made bow (not shown) You can also make your own bow if you prefer.
  1. On the back of your wreath, measure off and mark with a marker where you want your colors to start and stop.start on back of wreath
  2. Start at your first line and tape the yarn. Then start wrapping the yarn around the wreath until you get to the next line. Cut and tape or use a straight pin to secure the yarn to the back of the wreath.
  3. Use your next color and wrap til you get to the next line. Cut and secure the yarn to the back. Continue until the entire wreath is completed.switch colors on wreath
  4. Attach the bow with straight pins and hang! Since the wreath has a Styrofoam base, it’s easy to just push it on a nail back or hook.

  1. I just got rid of a bunch of yarn like this because I was having such a hard time crocheting with it and couldn’t think of anything else to do with it at the time. It would have made a really cute wreath. Thanks for the idea.
