In trying to figure out what to make for todays tutorial, I remembered that I had purchased a straw wreath a while ago with plans for making it pretty for my wall. Well, I started it but didn't finish it, which is to my advantage, because I didn't have to buy anything for todays project.
wreath (I used straw, but styrofoam would work as well)
yarn, any color
fabric, if desired
Start with a plain straw wreath, they come covered in plastic, so I I recommend leaving the plastic on to make it a bit easier and cleaner.
Take your yarn and and wrap the end of it around the wreath and tie it off.
Start wrapping the yarn around the wreath, hiding the first knot, until it is covered and you can not see any more straw. Tie it off, and tuck the end under.
Take some fabric and cut it in a long strip, (I used a vintage pillowcase from the thrift store for mine)
Glue one end to the backside of your wreath, covering the end of the yarn.
Wrap the fabric tightly around the wreath, glueing as you go along. Glue the end of the fabric to the wreath.
Make some felt flowers, or you could use silk if you'd like.
Once you have them in the desired pattern, use your hot glue to secure each of them to the wreath.
Stand back and admire your gorgeous work!!
