Oh La La Wreath

If you’ve been visiting here for a while, you know Clenna. She’s one of our regulars!

Clenna always tells us that she is not the least bit crafty. But after this post, I think you’ll agree she is a genius at choosing great craft projects! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Last month, she sent me a link to a project she thought I might like. Oh my – did I ever! It was almost Christmas though, so I made myself a note to try it after the holidays.

I bought the supplies last week and what fun I have had making this.

It began with a styrofoam ring and a skein of yarn (You just knew I’d work purple in somehow!) . . .

Then I played with some scraps of wool felt . . .

And voila! I had a pretty fabulous wreath!

Sorry if I sound like a proud parent here, but I am so thrilled with how this turned out. ๐Ÿ˜€

It’s very easy to make and I can imagine it in all kinds of variations.

You’ll find the directions here.

Thank you Clenna! You are my current craft maven. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Clenna and Crystal that turned out beautiful. It has been so grey and cloudy here that the colors gave my mood a real boost. I can relate to Clenna, I don’t have talents for crafting either. I can barely keep up with my niece when she comes over and we do crafts together. Without the easy craft kits from Michaels, I would be out of luck.

  2. ooo! So pretty and so Spring! Its gorgeous and I love the felt roses. Amazing how they just turned the wreath into something super special. Good choice Clenna.

  3. How beautiful! I love the roses; they “make” it!

    I am not at all crafty either; my daughter is though, she can knit & crochet, sew and she loves to create things! I’m not sure where she gets it, certainly not from me.

  4. Oh Crystal – it turned out beautifully. I would never have known what yarn to select but the one you picked is awesome! And those roses- so pretty and they absolutely make the wreath very different and so pretty.
    Good job – now you have to make one and put it in a giveaway!

    Tooth is much better! A little sore but doing great. Thanks for asking.
    (For those who didn’t know I broke a crown off at the gum line, so had to have oral surgery! Painful for a couple of days but good now) PS I hate dentists but had to do it.

  5. Hey!! Wait for me…

    I saw your beautiful wreath but forgot to tell you how much I love it. I like that you used a wider styrofoam base for yours. The yarn stands out more.

    Even though I am up to my eyeballs in fabric right now, I was tempted to set my rotary cutter now and go find my styrofoam and yarn.

    Thanks, Clenna, such a pretty find.

  6. What a gorgeous wreath! I hope you’re going to put it on your front door come Springtime! Sooo pretty, Crystal!

    xoxo Paulette ๐Ÿ™‚
