I’ve also got Pinboards full of yarn wrapped wreaths, and yarn wrapped letters. Before I started paper crafting, I dabbled in knitting, so the texture of this really speaks to me! At the local craft store I picked up a foam wreath and some yarn. Then, while watching TV, I wrapped the yarn around, alternating between the white and grey in about two inch increments. Then I got my hot glue gun ready and dug out my stash of MFT Felt and Die-namics.
With so many beautiful Die-namics to choose from, I was able to put together this cozy wreath in about 30 minutes (The wrapping of the wreath in yarn took about another 30 to 40 minutes, so in the time it would take you to watch a move you’d be fully done!) I love that you could just switch out the color scheme to make a springy one, or even a fall or holiday themed wreath depending on your selection of felt and yarn. I used the Loopy Bloom Die-namics, Large Rolled Rose Die-namics and the Scalloped Rolled Flower Die-namics for this wreath. Now, it looks like I need to make one more trip to the store, this time for a wreath holder….
So, take a look at your Die-namics and stamps and see what YOU can put together for a little touch of beauty at home, or a really thoughtful, personalized gift. Have FUN and we’ll see you again next week!
