If you would’ve told me a year ago that I’d go to a craft party, I would have laughed and said, “No way, José!”
And yet, just a few days ago, I did. Why? Well, mainly because my sweet co-worker Blair was hosting and I just love her (and she was providing the wine), but also because my fellow Mrs. and I had just started this blog and I figured it’d make for good blog fodder. And it did. Here’s what happened, in pictures, and what I made.
Supplies: a jar, scissors, tissue paper or fabric in pattern(s) of your choice, modge podge and a LED battery-powered candle ($5/5 pack at Hobby Lobby); you don’t want all your hard work to go up in flames, no do ya?
You can paper the inside or just the lid. Look how pretty!
Now, here’s my craft …
DIY YARN WREATH
Felt – $1 (or $0.25/sheet)
Pins – $2/box
Wicker wreath – $2 (1/2-off at hobby lobby)
Yarn – $4
Faux fall florals – $3
Here, it hangs in my kitchen. Goes perfect with the wallpaper, don’t you think?
I’ve made others like this before, including this Christmas wreath with fuzzy yarn for a more voluminous look, and this Baylor University one themed for my big sister who’s the proudest BU grad you’ll meet.
Want step-by-step instructions on how to make a yarn wreath? I learned from Danielle Burkleo’s blog post on her blog, Take Heart. It’s a great little project to do on a lazy Saturday with a classic chick flick on in the background! Have fun!
