I’ve seen everyone on blog-land making these adorable yarn wreaths with felt flowers.
tutorial was perfect! I liked the look of the yarn wreath but I really wanted to use grapevine wreath forms that you can find at any craft store so I modified mine a bit.
I used the tutorial’s instructions for making the flowers but that’s it. I decided to buy a pick from Michael’s for $0.99 cents (I split it in half), one sheet of red felt for $.29 cents and the wreath for $3.99 – I had the hot glue gun, white felt, black felt and ribbon on hand already. So this wreath cost me a little over $5. You really can’t beat that! Plus I found similar wreaths after I made this one on Etsy for $40!

If you want to make these here’s a tip: Check out the dollar store since they often has wreath forms and I bought a big pack of felt there a year or so ago for a buck (that’s where the black and white felt came from). I might just make a yarn wreath now, too, since I still have some felt and I have a roll of white yarn lying around begging to be used for something.
