Blue Yarn Spring Wreath- DIY

Welcome to Day Two of Spring Wreath Week, I am so happy you dropped by.

This little wreath just has to be one of the easiest, sweetest and most 

enjoyable wreaths to make in the entire crafting world, maximum time 20 

minutes and mess free.

Such a relief after that Moss wreath!





I love the color blue, it is such a serene and calming shade.  

We have several rooms in our home which are painted blue and I have one 

spot in one bedroom which needed just a little something.

I really wanted to keep it simple, since this guest room is all about 

feeling serene, relaxed, and peaceful.






With fresh blue paint on the walls and our antique wrought iron bed updated 

with new linens, this room needed just a little something.



It seems to me, this Blue Yarn Spring Wreath is perfect for this Season.  

In retrospect I should have made it larger, but never the less it pretty

much fits the bill.

(Note to self-larger wreath for this bedroom)

Supplies For Blue Yarn Spring Wreath

1.  Styrofoam Wreath Form
2.  Fun Fur Yarn light blue and dark blue
3.  Paper Daisies 
4.  Hot glue gun
5.  Grosgrain Ribbon
6.  Thumb tack





































Directions for Blue Yarn Spring Wreath~

Wrap the light blue fun fur yarn around the Styrofoam form until completely

covered.

Wrap the dark blue fun fur yarn over the top of the light yarn leaving 

about an inch between each wrapping.

  7. Oh Jemma, your guest bedroom is so charming. Your linen looks a bit aqua, which I love. The antique iron bed is so pretty. The girls used to have an iron head board in their room, and when they were all grown up, I ended up giving it away, along with the cutest hutch and night stands. I really regret doing it because I loved that bit of white in the house. Those bowls are lovely, and look at that sweet bunny saying Hi to us hehe. I am enjoying seeing all the pretty wreaths that you are making.

    love,
