Spring Wreath

I found the idea for this wreath on pinterest.  This wreath is easy to make, tho a bit time consuming.  What I like about it is that you can make the base wreath (green grass), and redecorate it easily however you'd like year after year, or even day after day. 

So, here's how I made this wreath.


- foam wreath
- craft glue (optional)
- round head pins
- silk flowers (got these from the dollar tree store)
- ribbon to hang wreath

How to:

1.  Take the individual flowers off the silk flower stems, and set aside.
2.  Use a pin to attach one end of the fun fur yarn to the foam wreath.  You can also add a dab of glue.  (I put way too much glue in the picture.  A pin and a small dab will work great -- or even just the pin.)
3.  Wrap the yarn around the foam wreath until the wreath is completely covered. (This is the time consuming part.)  For a 12 inch wreath, I was able to cover everything with 2 skeins of fun fur (just barely.  I pinned the last end of the yarn to the beginning of the first skein of yarn, then slowly spread the yarn so it covered the foam wreath evenly.)
4.  Put a pin thru the center of the silk flower and stick the pin into the wreath in random places. Repeat for as many flowers as you'd like to use.
5.  Attach a ribbon.
