Fall Yarn Wreath

I am SO READY FOR FALL. Can I get a hand raise if you are too?

I am so ready for fall I made this wreath a few weeks ago despite it still being 100 degrees at the time.

This wreath was really easy to make. Here's what you'll need:

To start, tie on, and then just wrap.

I will say the more precise you are with your wrapping the less yarn you'll need. I had to buy another skein for the inch that I didn't have enough of, but I was able to go back and touch up a few spots that needed some more coverage. If you want a "messier" look buy two skeins or a smaller wreath.

For the felt flowers I just bought felt squares in the craft section. I guess they're tecnically felt rectangles but who likes the way that sounds? Felt squares just sounds better.

To make them I followed this tutorial:


They're actually really easy and a large rose doesn't require a very big circle.

Play around with your flower arrangement before you glue them on and then you're done!

What fall crafts have you done lately?

  1. None, but I need to! I did a yarn wreath last year, but hated that it looked lopsided because I used a swimming pool noodle instead of an actual wreath form. Hopefully I'll get to try it again sometime soon!

    Did you hang it with a Command Hook?
