DIY Saturday (because I can't wait until Wednesday)--Fall Yarn Wreath

 Festive Fall Yarn Wreath!

You will need:
Foam ring--any size (found in garden section at craft stores)
Yarn
Felt sheets
Scissors
Glue gun
Marker-optional
Push pins

(I apologize for the low quality pics--it was nighttime because I couldn't wait until morning to do this one!)


 Wrap that yarn ALL the way around your ring---pulling it tight and squishing it together all along the way!  This took me about an hour--so pop in a movie and wrap away!



Now for the decorating!  If you want to make little felt flowers, just cut a spiral like this--big or small.


 And wrap that spiral together again, now overlapping a bit so you are left with this!


Now you can add as many of those as you want in various sizes and colors.  I hot glued a dot to the end of the spiral so it would stay together and then used gold push pins to attach everything to the wreath--you could also just hot glue them to the wreath if you'd like.  I also added a few leaves for added 'fallness'.

I love my new wreath! :)


Like many things, my inspiration came from Pinterest.  Here were a few I liked:



This was fun and easy and I can't wait to make one for Christmas!  Also, I don't know if this is true of all Joann's right now, but the one I went to was having a great sale---ton's of stuff was 50% and 60% off this weekend!
Happy Crafting!
