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?

  1. I love it! That’s alot of winding! The only change I might make was the burlap. Although I love burlap, I think I would like a multicolored ribbon, as in the original display, just because it brings out the beautiful fall colors! I’d love one-but too hard for my thumbs to wind all of that yarn-lots of work-but result is worth it!
