Yarn Letters

I made more yarn letters. I'm kind of obsessed lately. I even got Chelsea in on the fun.

4th of July wreath

I went down to Vegas for summer break this week. Chelsea mentioned she might want to make a 4th of July wreath so I brought some stuff down. We found something similar to this on Pinterest (my new obsession) and got to work. The worst part of the whole thing was wrapping the wreath in yarn.

Chelsea's wreath
Chelsea's turned out so cute I had to make my own
I might be a little obsessed with bandana right now.

wreath form (we used the straw kind because they're the cheapest)
white yarn
red and blue embroidery thread (to wrap around the wreath)
red, white, and blue pins (to stick the circles and stars in the wreath...instead of hot glue)
red, white, blue, and confederate flag bandanas (hobby lobby for $0.99 each)
various red, white, blue material
blue ribbon

How to
wrap wreath form in white yarn (if you do it thick you might only have to do 1 layer)
cut stars and circles from material and bandanas
wrap embroidery thread around wreath weaving back and forth as you go
arrange circles and stars on side of wreath and pin in place
hang wreath with ribbon and attach circle at top (pin into knot to hold in place)
so easy and so cute!
