Yarn Wreath with Felt Flowers.

Things You'll Need:
  • Straw wreath
  • Yarn
  • Felt
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Other embellishments
First, keep the plastic wrapping on the straw wreath. Second, tie a knot to begin and wrap wreath with yarn. you will want to keep it tight and keep in mind that it is close to impossible to have the yarn perfectly lined up on the entire wreath, then tie a knot to end. Third, cut a circle out of felt. the bigger the circle, the bigger the flower. Fourth, cut around the outside of the circle to make it have a waved look. Fifth, pick any point on the circle to start cutting the felt. you will be cutting a large spiral shape so that you will end up with one long thin strip of felt. Sixth, when you get to the very end you will have a circle or oval shape left that you will want to leave and not cut into. this will be the base of your flower. Seventh, take the end of the felt where you began cutting and start to roll. you will want to keep it tight in the beginning so it holds. if you want a smaller more circular flower keep it tight. if you want it to have a more open look you can keep it a little more loose as you roll it. Eighth, once you get to the end you will glue the bottom onto the flower. Nineth, glue and place them randomly. add any other embellishments that you would like. Tenth, add a ribbon, raffia, twine, fabric, etc to hang your wreath with. Now you have a beautiful yarn wreath to hang anywhere.
