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!)
