Valentines Yarn Wreath

I saw this lovely yarn wreath over at {Daily Candy}. I thought it looked so cute & even better, simple! It is my 1st of many Valentines Day decoration projects, now completed.

Instead of buying a foam or straw wreath from the Craft Store, I went to the Dollar Store to check if they had anything. The wreath wasn’t exactly what I had in mind (it was actually for a floral arrangement). It was smaller than I would’ve liked & not quite the right shape. But the Dollar Store is closer & cheaper, so I went with it. I still LOVE it!

  1. LOVE IT. I'm planning on making one for Mardi Gras, but Walmart no longer has CHEAPO yarn =( I love the colors. I think for the shape it came out just fine. I shared your link on my blog's FB page.

  3. Enjoyed your post. I've been looking at wreaths made out of yarn all season and want to find the perfect one to make for next year's Christmas. My sister is a knitter and a yarn wreath would be great for her front door.

  12. LOVE it!! I think you made the right call by using what the dollar store had. All of that foam stuff is sooo expensive!

    Thanks for sharing at last week's Favorite Things Friday. Hope you'll be back tomorrow!
