I saw this online and fell in l-o-v-e with it….and then I thought: “I can do this. No problem-o.” I’ll make a super cute spring wreath that’s not totally Easter but highlights spring time! Fresh colors, felt flowers, awesome!
Then, I was shopping and saw this:
and proceeded to think, “that’s super cute too! how can i merge them to make something equally awesome?”
I took my bad self to the craft store and spent about 30 minutes picking out a soft yellow yarn, complimentary felt colors, and so on….took me two more weeks to find eggs that I liked. There was a lot of choices at Target:
And then I got home and started wrapping this beast. #patience.
I ended up doing three layers of yarn for what I felt as though was ‘good coverage’ and was happy after layer three. You can do this, it’s a great activity for kids too. I made the flowers out of felt, which I already blogged about and overall, this was a nice project for me. While I like immediate results, I also realize that this makes me blow through projects rather quickly.
- 1 wreath made of styrofoam
- 1 big ball of yarn, mine was equivalent to two skeins (one skein is probably more than enough too, lots leftover)
- hot glue gun
- felt flowers or other decorations
- some patience to wrap the yarn, the rest goes pretty smoothly w/ your friend, “HOT GLUE GUN”
