How do you feel about the yarn wreath trend? I wasn't sure until I came across this lovely wreath on Pinterest. Now I'm a convert. The color combination and simple felt flowers drew me in, as did the fact that with a little embellishment it could double as a Thanksgiving and fall birthday party decoration.
To make the wreath, I followed these instructions, using an 18-inch diameter straw wreath and leaving the plastic wrap on. I had to dip into a second spool of yarn (is spool even the right word here?) to finish wrapping and hanging the wreath.
Cricket's birthday falls the weekend after Thanksgiving this year, so I'll be adding this little "2" to transform the wreath into a party decoration. I bought the unfinished wooden number, painted it with acrylic paint to match the felt flowers and hung it with extra yarn. Using an initial could be cute, too.
There's still time to make one of these for your fall festivities, so get wrapping!
