Yarn Wreaths (+ Birds)
Last May, my best friend sent me an image of a handmade wreath that she made for her mom.
I thought that hers was so lovely, I would take a stab at making one as a gift for my mother on her birthday. Erin told me that to create a smooth appearance, she wrapped the wreath with fabric first. Then she wrapped it with yarn and used carefully applied hot glue to keep everything together. I followed her same basic steps, but I used stick pins to secure the ends of the fabric and yarn (only on the back, non-visible side). I hate working with hot glue!
I had a lot of fun making this gift for Mama, and the embellishment possibilities are endless! What an excellent way to de-stash!

Oh my gosh!!! These are both GORGEEEOUS!!! Y’all are SUPER crafty!
Can I ask where you got your little birdie friend for your wreath? He is so cute!
Thanks Diana! I got the birdie from Michael’s in the fall (about the same time of year). Hope you can find one too!
I believe I bought him at Michael’s in the early fall.
