Valentine's Wreath {DIY}


Got my craft on this week.
And after a wee bit of a break, it felt oh so good.

Supplies I used:
-wire wreath {I used the largest they had, want to say it was 16in}
- yarn
- styrofoam ball of different sizes
-other embellishments {I used glitter hearts}
-hot glue gun


And start wrapping. And keep wrapping. And keep wrapping. Prefect project is you have some DVRed shows to catch up on.


To make some yarn puffs. Wrap yarn around your fingers. Lay on a piece of yarn, tie tight. Then snip the loops and shape into a puff ball. I used these to fill in holes.

For me it was easier to make as I went along and laid everything out as I went.

Glueing and going.


Finished product.




Enjoy!
