Retro Christmas Wreath

I can’t believe we’re already in Day 3 of the 10 Days of Merry series!  Wowzer.  I’m super excited to share this fabulous and retro inspired project with you using yarn, Christmas balls and a styrofoam wreath form!  So incredibly easy with a big wow factor.  Even better yet, there’s still plenty of time to whip up a Retro Christmas Wreath before it’s too late!

Retro Inspired Christmas Wreath with livelaughrowe.comSupplies to make your own retro yarn Christmas wreath:

12″ styrofoam wreath
Fun Fur yarn in Lime
Small Ornaments (I had some on hand and bought the red ones at the dollar store)
Glue Gun

The making of the Retro Yarn Wreath, by starting to wrap the furry yarn.Glue your end to the styrofoam wreath and start wrapping!

keep wrapping yarn around styrofoam form wreath…and keep wrapping!

Note:  Cut 3 or 4 strings of yarn at approximately 3 to 4 feet in length each and wrap them around the wreath together.  It will speed up the process a bit and prevent the yarn from getting tangled and knotted, slowing the process down.  (yep, I’m speaking from experience.  hee-hee)

And keep wrapping the yarn around the wreath formThis is the most tedious part, but… keep wrapping {smile}.

remove the caps from the ornaments and glue onto wreathWe’re almost half way there!  YAY!
Once you’re done, go ahead and remove the ornament caps.

Attaching ornaments to the retro yarn wreath.And attach ornaments to the wreath with glue gun.
We’re officially done.  What do you think?

    What a great use for that crazy yarn! (My mom has a scarf made out of it, and I always tease her about it.) Love this idea.

I'd love to hear your thoughts...
