Snowman Yarn Wreath

Snowman Yarn Wreath

This adorable snowman yarn wreath will give a warm, cozy appeal to your home’s front door or your mantle.  Yarn wreaths are my favorite wreaths for winter months.  They are so simple yet so bold.  This snow white wreath just screams winter.  You can almost picture this little guy coming to life and skating through town.  

If your kids love to help you make your crafts and wreaths, this is a great one to have them work on.  They can wrap the yarn around the foam wreath form.  Depending on their age or cutting skills, they may be able to cut out the snowman’s hat.  It’s a fun way to get the kids involved in making cherished Christmas decor that you bring out every year.

**This wreath is one that would be best used inside or on a door with a porch to keep the yarn from getting wet.**

Supplies

 

 

  • White Loop Yarn (2 skeins)
  • 1 white 6 inch wreath form
  • 1 white 10 inch wreath form
  • Black felt-stiff/heavy-duty (sparkles optional)
  • Small sprig of holly or other green and berries
  • Zip ties (2)
  • Hot glue and glue gun
  • 10 inch piece of narrow ribbon for hanging wreath (optional)
  • Ribbon (wired)–for this I chose a flannel ribbon

 

 

 Directions

 

  • Hot glue one end of loop yarn to the foam wreath form
  • Wrap the loop yarn around the foam wreath forms until both forms are covered
  • Use zip ties to connect the two wreath forms together, hiding the zip lines with the loop yarn
  • Draw and cut out a top hat of felt
  • Hot glue the hat to the top wreath form.  Glue on green stem and berries if you choose
  • Tie desired length of ribbon around the neck of the snowman-hot glue can be used to secure the ribbon to the snowman

Simple Evergreen Christmas Wreath

Simple Evergreen Christmas Wreath

 

Evergreen trees and branches just scream tradition and Christmas.  This Simple Evergreen Christmas Wreath brings a traditional touch to your door or mantle.

I love all things natural and outdoors.  When it’s so cold in the winter that you cannot stand to be outside for long, it feels so nice to bring a little of the outdoors inside.  While I love bright and colorful Christmas decor, I have changed the past couple of years to add more of a traditional and woodsy theme to our decor.  Check out my woodland Christmas wreaths here.

 

Supplies

  • Evergreen wreath form (Hobby Lobby)
  • Ribbon (wired)
  • Berry picks (2)
  • Snowflake picks (2)
  • Ornament (I chose a metal sign ornament from Hobby Lobby)
  • Twine or fishing line
  • Hot glue gun with glue sticks

Winter Loop Yarn Wreath

 

Winter Loop Yarn Wreath

This winter loop yarn wreath is such a warm addition to your door.  It is darling with it’s rustic cardinal ornament and snuggly loop yarn.

Loop yarn is perfect for wreaths.  The texture of the wreath reminds me of the cuddle weather of winter and makes me want to grab some hot tea, a blanket and snuggle up on the sofa.

This is such an easy wreath to make.  It takes about 15 minutes and only because it takes a little time to wrap the yard around the wreath form.  So, cue up a Christmas movie and grab a spot on the sofa.  Once you have wrapped the wreath, you have little left to do before you can admire your creation.

Supplies 

  • Black loop yarn-1 skein
  • Wire wreath form (This one was purchased at Dollar Tree)
  • Red bird ornament (I purchased this one at Hobby Lobby)
  • Twine

This wreath has special meaning for me and my family.  My grandmother, for as long as I can remember, loved cardinals.  Everyone gave her cardinal knickknacks, sweaters, magnets and anything else you can imagine.  When she passed away, I started noticing cardinals everywhere.  I bought a small cardinal to go in a planter as a reminder of that special lady.  When I saw this little galvanized metal ornament, I immediately wanted to make it in a wreath for winter.  I hope you enjoy making it as much as I did.

Woodland Winter Wreaths

Woodland Winter Wreaths

 

These woodland winter wreaths are a great way to bring outdoor charm indoors for the winter season.  Deer are beautiful creatures.  When I think of being outdoors in winter, I think of leafless tree limbs, pine cones on the ground and deer off in the distance.  This year, I decided to bring the outdoors inside for our winter decor.

White Deer Wreath

JOY Christmas Hoop Wreath

 

JOY Christmas Hoop Wreath

 

Joy on a child’s face on Christmas morning.  Joy in snuggling on the sofa with someone you love.  Joy in sipping a cup of hot cocoa and watching snow fall outside.  There is so much simple joy to be found during Christmas.  This Joy Christmas Hoop Wreath is the perfect little reminder of the simple joys of Christmas.

I LOVE hoop wreaths.  Have I said that before?  Yep, I’m sure I’ve said it every time I make one.  They are so simple and elegant.  A wreath does not have to be stuffed with tulle and flowers to be adorable.  Check out other hoop wreaths I’ve done recently here and here.

Joy Christmas Wreath

This wreath is a simple little work of art.  I took apart an evergreen stem, added pine cones, berries and a Christmas ornament from Hobby Lobby.

 

Supplies needed

  • Hoop wreath form
  • Evergreen stem
  • Pine cones
  • Berry stems
  • Twine
  • Burlap ribbon or other ribbon of choice 
  • Wooden JOY Christmas ornament
  • White paint
  • Hot glue and glue gun

 


Directions

  • Paint hoop wreath form white and let dry.
  • Take branches off of evergreen stem (with wire cutters or break off by bending it back and forth until the wire weakens and breaks).
  • Cut excess wire from berry stems.
  • Glue evergreen branches onto the painted wreath.
  • Berry stems can be glued on top of the evergreen branches.
  • Secure pine cones with hot glue on the evergreen stems.
  • Create bow with burlap ribbon.  (Since my burlap ribbon was wide, I cut strips and cut them in half lengthwise.  I stacked them on top of one another and added a smaller strip to bind them together around the middle.)  
  • Tie Christmas ornament to the top of the hoop. 
  • Add twine to the top to use as a hanger for the wreath.

Enjoy!!
