diy: fall yarn ball wreath

remember my round-up of fall fun a few weeks ago? one of my favorite things on that list was this adorable yarn wreath from write it down.

a girlfriend of mine threw a pinterest party a few weeks ago. everyone was to bring supplies for a project they had pinned and a bottle of wine. this was the perfect time for me to start this wreath!

i couldn’t find a link to any diy instructions for this, so i’ll give you my best interpretation. here’s what you’ll need:

  • three colors of yarn 
  • about 15 styrofoam balls. i used two different sizes
  • floral wire
  • burlap or ribbon for hanging

1) tie the yarn onto a ball.

2) and then start wrapping! wrap each ball until completely covered and then tie off. you’ll need about fifteen balls of different colors.

3) arrange the bottom layer of ten yarn balls in a circle.

4) string together with floral wire. i found it helpful to poke holes through each ball with an ice pick before i started stringing. also create a string of five yarn balls to attach to the circle. 

5) wrap some yarn around the wire between each ball and tie off.

6. attach a ribbon (or in my case a strip of burlap) for hanging.mine didn’t turn out quite as pretty as my inspiration, but i still think it’s pretty cute.
what fall crafts have you done this month?


diy: festive felt fall garland

despite blogging so highly about my favorite season last week, nature has been a bit cruel, as i’ve been under the weather for a week now. one advantage of staying in is that i’ve had time to work on some projects! first up, this adorable fall garland from a beautiful mess that i was ogling during my last post:

luckily i already had all the supplies- twine and felt- in my craft cabinet. after a few hours of cutting and stringing while watching a saturday morning movie, i had completed my first fall craft project. what do you think?




now, on to my halloween costume! can’t wait to share with you guys (assuming it actually comes together. fingers crossed!)
