DIY Yarn Wreath Tutorial -3 Ways!

DIY Yarn Wreath

While I wish spring had arrived here in Seattle, unfortunately it hasn’t, and we’ll be most likely stuck with our rainy winter for a while longer. With all the time spent indoors, it makes me want to make cozy home projects that make winter just a little bit better. And today’s project fits the bill! I’m sharing this DIY Yarn Wreath Tutorial, sponsored by Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores, that will show you how to make not one, but three different styles of yarn wreaths!

Hanging in a trio, these wreaths can make quite a statement in any room, and they will be the perfect addition to your décor any time of the year!

I have them hanging in my bedroom right now, and they add the perfect bohemian touch to my decor.

Let’s get to work!

Braided Yarn Wreath

Supplies:
yarn – 2 coordinating skeins in neutral colors
12” grapevine wreath
ribbon for hanging
glue gun and glue sticks
scissors

  1. Cut 3 strands of one skein of yarn, each 42” in length. Tie a knot at one end and braid strands together. It’s helpful to tape the knotted end to a wall while braiding. How to Make A Yarn Wreath How to Make A Yarn Wreath
  2. Tuck one end of braid behind a twig on back of wreath and pull braid until the halfway point of braid is under the twig. Wrap one end of braid diagonally around wreath as pictured, tucking braid end under twig to temporarily secure. How to Make A Yarn Wreath
  3. Repeat with remaining braid end, wrapping in opposite direction, and forming an even X at each crossing point. How to Make A Yarn Wreath
  4. Repeat steps above with coordinating yarn. When wrapping braid around wreath, position it between each X that was formed earlier. How to Make A Yarn Wreath How to Make A Yarn Wreath

Woven Yarn Wreath DIY Yarn WreathSupplies:
Lion Brand Wow Yarn – 1 skein
12” wire wreath frame
faux greenery / flower
Spray paint to match yarn
glue gun and glue sticks
scissors

  1. Spray paint metal wreath to match yarn color. Allow to dry completely. How to Make A Yarn Wreath
  2. Working with 24” in length pieces, weave yarn above and below wreath bars, alternating directions back and forth. When reaching end of yarn length, secure each end on wreath back with hot glue, and repeat with another 24” length of yarn (the shorter lengths are much easier to work with than one continuous strand and help to reduce the amount of fuzz created while weaving). Repeat until entire wreath circumference has been woven. How to Make A Yarn Wreath How to Make A Yarn Wreath How to Make A Yarn Wreath
  3. Hot glue faux greenery near bottom of wreath. Tie a bow from yarn and hot glue near greenery. How to Make A Yarn Wreath
  4. To make wreath hanger, loop piece of yarn through outer metal bar at top of wreath and tie in a bow at desired length. How to Make A Yarn Wreath

Hang all three wreaths as desired! I used the same method used in my Cactus Wall Hanging Tutorial and love to see all three displayed together!
