Fall yarn wreath- Tried It Out Thursday


I've been bitten by the bug and had to make a yarn wreath like everyone else. This was very easy to do. I used a foam wreath form for mine and yarn that I got from the thrift store. I managed to get almost a full skein and a huge bag of odds and ends for $3.00. I have enough to make another wreath in another color.  Tutorials for the wreaths and flowers can be found in the links in this post.  I chose fall colors but since I have a fall wreath that I made last year and my storage space is running out, I'll be shipping this one to my mom.

The colors are a little off since I had to photograph this at night. The small flower to the bottom is more yellow/golden that it appears here.



Thanks for stopping by, and a special thanks to my recent new followers!

  13. Oh my goodness your blog is lovely. This is my first time viewing it. I really like this wreath too. Your music though is blaring and every time I open up a new page of your blog or look at a photo it replays. :( I look at blogs at night when my daughter is sleeping and I stream TV on a separate browser. I don't think I can keep checking out your blog. :( I even like the music but I wish there was a way of choosing if I wanted it to play.
