Spring Wreath

Happy Spring!

I have seen a few yarn wreaths around the web and was dying to try my hand at one! I love the way it came out and it was totally easy to do.

First, I started with some green yarn, a styrofoam wreath and some picks and little birdies from the craft store.

Next, I hot glued one end of the yarn to a starting point on the wreath and wound the yarn around the wreath, trying to keep it even on one side. This took me about 45 minutes. When I was done, I decided which part of the wreath was the top and wound some florist wire around and into a loop for a hanger, hot gluing the loop to make it a little hidden on the back.

Next, I cut some picks apart and started to layer and hot glue them as I went.

I added in a little birdie!

and a butterfly which I punched out of paper and glittered.
and viola!
Here it is hanging on my front door. I may add a ribbon to the top. Hope you like it!

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my wreath. I also hooked up to the Sunday Showcase over at Under the Table and Dreaming.

    Popped over to say I'm extremely flattered that you used my envelope tutorial on the challenge forum - thanks!
