Yesterday and today I spent several hours making wreaths. I have seen various styles, and especially yarn wreaths on Etsy and Pinterest. I’ve really liked some of the ones I’ve seen and wanted to try it out myself for a while now.
What nobody ever tells you when there’s crafting involved is the amount of TIME it takes to create these things. Wow, does it take a lot. of. time. That’s why I split this one up into two days. One and a half wreaths are about all I can pull off in a day with two young kids at home with me.
So, here are the results of my efforts:
This Christmas “Candy Cane” wreath is one I had seen on Pinterest. I modified the embellishments, but otherwise it’s not my own idea. I had originally thought this one would be my favorite but now I’m not sure!
This wreath is probably my favorite. I’ve always been a fan of the classic black & white, and I had a pin I wanted to use for it. Like always, it turned out a little differently than expected, but I’m pleased with it. Baby Blake especially likes looking at the black & white!
This tutu-inspired wreath will probably find its home in Alivia’s room. I’m not sure if it’s finished or not. I added the pink wrap in the middle & the letter A to embellish it, but I’m still deciding if it needs something more!
So… What do you think?
I’m pretty pleased with how they turned out.
I still have a few ideas I’d like to try, but I have a feeling they will be waiting for a while. I did buy several skeins of yarn, so they’ll be ready when I am!
Happy Designing! -Cherie
