Spring Wreath Tutorial from the 36th Avenue

I really want to make one of these DIY wreaths that the 36th Avenue posted to her blog.  I always try to pin them on Pinterest but never can directly from her blog, so I am reposting on mine, so I have it on file. 

See original post here.

For the longest time I have wanted to make a yarn wreath and I finally found the time to make one for my home.

The Materials

All I used was a small spool of yarn.

Laced Ribbon.




{ I found all the material at Wal-Mart}

The Tutorial


I secured the yarn to the wreath with a knot and a pin.

After it was in place I rolled the yarn around the wreath and

I rolled… rolled… rolled and rolled.

{Keep the yarn tight and close together. }


After the wreath was covered with yarn I added some flowers made of fabric.

Anyone can make these flowers.

I cut pairs of circles of different sizes. I placed two of them together so the best part of the fabric will show on both sides.

To make the flower fold the circles in half to make a semicircle{ picture 2}.

Then fold it in thirds {picture 3} overlapping the layers {picture 4}.

You are done.


Attach the flowers to the wreath with pins.

Add as many flowers as you like to achieve the look you love.

I used different patterns of fabric to make it fun.


To finish it I added some burlap leaves, white pins, laced ribbon and the crazy fun white yarn.

Some more ribbon on the top to tie it to my old window and I was done!

I love Spring!

I’ll be back tomorrow with another easy Spring project.

Happy Tuesday!
