Yarn Ball Plus – Wreath

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??

This is the first time I’ve ever had a wreath hanging on my door, and I love it!  It was super cold out but I braved it for a second to get some pictures for you:

I didn’t take pictures during the process, because lots of other people have already done that, but here’s a few things:
–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…..
