Okay so it is not fall yet
But the sunflowers have made their appearance lining the roads and filling empty fields.
This means summer is winding down.
I spent way to much time on this when I have 1 million other half finished projects to work on. But I don't really care because it makes me smile, and it was a lot more fun than re sanding and painting the front door.
It did take a while though. Over two hours.
Supplies you need.
Wreath base- any kind with do
Yarn- two spools of yarn in different colors at the least
Material and Felt- scraps will do nicely for fabric flowers
Misc- beads, birds, flowers... whatever you have got
Hot glue... and lots of it, also some tough fingertips if you are clumsy like me.
Step 1: Wrap your wreath base in yarn.
It doesn't have to be perfect. See the hay peeking through above.
Secure the yarn with hot glue. I was wrapping about two yards at a time- only gluing both ends down and gluing on to the back of the wreath
Step 2: Glue whatever you want wherever you want.
Really I had a plan from the start and was using this etsy store here as my inspiration.
I think as long as you have a good eye for colors- or get ideas from somewhere else it will look unique and charming.
I hot glued on about 20 fabric flowers (find that tutorial here)
a few yarn pom poms (find that tutorial here)
and some other random bird, plastic flowers and beads.
Then I tied a ribbon around the top to hang down.
I promise it is the coolest front door wreath in the neighborhood.
A heighten sense of wreath snobbery is totally what I was hoping for with this project too :)
