I've been seeing yarn ball wreaths around blogland and had to make one for myself - now that I'm declaring myself a "wreath person". Turned out cute, right??
--Yarn Balls are not solid yarn - that'd be a big waste of yarn. They are ugly ornaments my mom was throwing out (shiny gold) that I hot glued and wrapped yarn around.
--The yarn wrapping took a while so instead of solid yarn balls I mixed it up with shiny silver and glittery green, red, and white.
--I went with traditional colors with some gray added it - I spray painted my wreath form (dollar store $1) gray in case it showed in places.
--I started placement with the big balls and filled in with smaller ones. I was doing it on a flat surface but then thought I should get a visual of how it would look so I set it on my sliding door handle - a few minutes after this picture it went crashing to the ground, busting an ornament and knocking several others off - argh!
It was fun to assemble - try it!! I worked alongside my cousin Kate - maybe she'll send me a picture of hers so I can show it too.....
