All Season Front Door Wreath

I’ve been enjoying having a wreath on our front door so much, that I made a Wreath Board on Pinterest.  One of my favorites on this board is the Spring Yarn Wreath from Steamy Kitchen……

I am so loving the monogram look, so here is my version….with a monogram and light blue color scheme.

Well, over Christmas I had GOOD intentions of making one for the holidays, but didn’t.  I cheated and put up the store bought one from last year.

In order to get my crafty self back in the groove, I created a yarn wrapped “all season” wreath.  I chose silver, deep red, and light blue for my color scheme.  I LOVE how it looks on our chocolate brown front door!



Supplies:
*2 spools of yarn, 125 feet each {yea, you’re going to be wrapping 250 feet of yarn around your wreath}
*Wreath form {I dismantled my fall wreath and used the form from that one}
*Hot glue
*Artificial flowers, ribbon, etc.
*Wood letter {used from my fall wreath}
Directions:
1.  Wrap the wreath form with yarn.  This will take you a bit of time, especially if the two year old wants to help.  Keep the yarn tight and even while you’re wrapping.
2.  Position your wood letter where you want it, and secure it with hot glue.  I learned from the fall wreath, to NOT put it on the side of the wreath because it weighs it down.  Then, it looks lopsided on the door.  So, mine’s positioned at the top, in the center.
3.  Next, lay out your artificial flowers in a pattern or design that is pleasing to you.  Secure these to the wreath with hot glue.   I also added a little glitzy ribbon on the outer edges of my flower design to give it some sparkle.

4.  Hang and enjoy!
