DIY Yarn-Wrapped Love Wreath

This year I decided we needed a new wreath. I wanted to make one myself but I needed a project that was quick, simple and inexpensive. I also wanted to make something colourful and cute, rather than traditional. I like glittery things as much as the next girl, but I’m slowly trying to get away from red, green and gold and make our decorations more bright and colourful. I think bright suits us better. I think it suits our hot, summery Australian Christmases better too.

This simple little wreath was inspired by this wreath made by Pip and this wreath made by James (with these yarn wrapped letters). It was so easy peasy to make. I just wrapped a styrofoam wreath in yarn, securing with my trusty glue gun at the back. I then shaped “love” out of pipercleaners, wrapped yarn around it and glued it on. See? Easy peasy!

What does your wreath look like? There are so many lovely DIY wreathes about… If you’ve seen any especially wonderful ones please do share the link. (I am kind of already thinking about what sort of wreath to make next year!)

    So cute! I may try this out too. Thanks for sharing! :-)
    I’ve made a tutorial on my blog about how to make your own wreaths out of foam tubes. An even more inexpensive idea, and you can decorate it however you like it! You can take a look here:

      That is such a great idea, because those little styrofoam wreaths can be surprisingly expensive! Love the wreath you made.

        Oh, I’m so glad you like it! Yes, styrofoam wreaths can be so expensive, but the foam tubes are a really good alternative.
