Remember the yarn ball ornaments that I made last week?
Well, I put them on a wreath.
Now I can hardly take credit for this idea - there are loads of such wreaths all over Pinterest - but this is mine and here is how I put it together.
I made six yarn ball ornaments following the tutorial that I shared with you last week.
I got my evergreen wreath - which I purchased for a steal in the after Christmas sales last year - out of storage.
And some small glass bulbs which I purchased in the same sales. (Look closely and you'll see my awkward photo taking pose reflected in the bulbs).
Then I started putting the whole thing together.
To attach the bulbs to the wreath I pulled the evergreen shoot through the hanger on the bulb and bent it around until the bulb was firmly secured.
When everything was in place, I hung the wreath in my dining room window.
(I am so glad that this wreath project was more successful than this disastrous attempt).
I love it! And am so glad that I was able to use yarn in my Christmas decorating.
I have a few other ideas, things that I would like to add to my wreath (sometimes it looks a tad sparse to me, like something is missing), but I may not get to that before Christmas.
There is always next year, right?
So, what do you think? Like my wreath? Think it needs something more? Made a yarn ball wreath of your own? Please share your thoughts in the comments.
