Easiest Wreath Ev-ah!

Wanted a wreath for the door...didn't want to spend any money to make it happen.What's a crafty girl to do but dig into the craft stash and see what she could come up with.

This project required nothing more than cardboard and yarn. Lots and lots of yarn. How it's made should be pretty obvious, but I will point out a few details that might help in case you want to make one yourself:
  • I used four different yarns (2 boucle and 2 chunky) which give an interesting texture
  • I alternated between the yarns as I wrapped (i.e. 3 times around with blue boucle, then 3 times with blue chunky, 3 times with green boucle, 3 times with dark blue chunky and repeat...) I wanted the different colours and textures to blend together a bit

If I were going out and buying materials to make this again, I would probably go for more traditional Christmas colours. I think an assortment of reds, greens and creams would look lovely! But it sure was nice to use up yarn I'd had sitting around for nearly a decade!

As a bonus, it matches my couch perfectly.
