DIY Yarn Wreath with Twine Flowers

I had so much fun recently making twine flowers that I decided to make some to add to a new yarn wreath for my dining room.

I didn’t just use twine flowers on this – I had a variety of flowers to decorate it with, including a fake hydrangea, some paper flowers, and a burlap flower.  Take what you have with some yarn you have, and see what decorative wreath you can create!  These really are simple to make – even if you feel like you aren’t the crafty type!

First thing you need to do is wrap your wreath base in yarn.  You will probably need to wrap it two times so that you don’t see any underlying color of the wreath base.  I had more plain tan (and cheaper) yarn on hand that I did the first row in – then I used my Lion Homespun brand for the final layer.  Wrapping the wreath is the most time consuming process.  But if you are like me, you can do this while curled up in front of your favorite TV show, and this will be a relaxing activity to turn your brain off.

After your wreath is wrapped in yarn, you then need to design how you want your flowers to be on the wreath.  I lay them all out first, and then get out my glue gun and glue them each on to stay in place.

How To Use A Flower Loom

If you want to make some twine flowers, be sure to read how in the tutorial over here.  You could in fact just make various size and color twine flowers and just decorate your yarn wreath with those!  The options are endless with this, and you can customize your wreath for your decor style and color.

Since burlap and twine are so trendy right now, I wanted some burlap flowers mixed in with my twine flowers.  I also like the pop of color the turquoise burlap flowers give to the wreath.
