Valentine Wreath {Tutorial} UPDATED

I have another Valentines craft for ya!

I'm totally obsessed with wreaths.{yarn wreaths}especially,they're so easy and simple to make
I can craft them and watch TV at the same time
;)

Take a look at the ones I made this weekend

 


I love how it turned out!

The LOVE & the hearts I made with my Cricut
It makes craftin so much easier



I had a friend who asked me to make her a Valentine's Day wreath
she wanted her & her husbands name
along with some rosettes

here is what I came up with

 

She is going to Love it!!


want to make a yarn wreath?

follow my easy tutorial here

Have a great day!


***UPDATE***

I've had a lot of people ask me for a tutorial and I was so excited to post this that I totally forgot to add a tutorial .
So here ya go!


I used this foam wreath
**get at any dollar or craft store**
This is the yarn I used
It's very different from any other yarn i've ever tried...and I have to say I like it the Best!
It's thicker and fluffy and makes the "wrapping" so much easier

Next step is to wrap...
this step is super easy, all you do is tie off you yarn around your wreath
and go to town wrapping!

It will look like this once you have covered the entire wreath.


Now just add your extras

see super simple craft to make!!!

I hope this hepled everyone out

:)
