St. Patrick’s Day is coming up next month and I’m here to show you an easy yarn wreath you can make for your front door! The great thing about this project is that you can change out the colors and LED Moon Lights to customize this yarn wreath for any season or holiday. I went with a random assortment for the rows on my wreath but a more organized pattern would also look lovely!
- Darice Straw Wreath
- Darice Shamrock Moon Lights
- Assorted Yarn (I used Sugar and Cream White, Sugar and Cream Dark Pine, Sugar and Cream Hot Cream)
- Floral Pins
- Darice Sage Tulle Netting
- Hot Glue Gun and Sticks
Disclaimer: Because of my lack of foresight, this tutorial is going to be a case of “do as I say, not as I do.” I would highly suggest wrapping your Shamrock Moon Lights first so that the yarn would cover the wire. It’s really not that big a deal because the wire isn’t that noticeable but it’s easily remedied if you just put the lights first and wrap the yarn around them. Another plus is that since you’re covering everything, you can use as many floral pins as you want to secure the lights in place. Makes it much easier!
Step One. Begin by securing your first piece of yarn around the wreath and then continue wrapping until you’re happy with the strip size. As I mentioned above, you can either randomize the colors and sizes like I did or stick with a pattern. Either way will look great!
Step Two. When you’re ready to switch out a color, just tie it onto the end of the previous yarn, making sure that the knot is placed at the back of the wreath. As you can see in the picture below, you’ll end up with a bunch of knots in the back that you can trim at the end.
Step Three. Continue wrapping the yarn until the entire piece is covered. If you haven’t already (read disclaimer at the beginning of this tutorial!), wrap the LED lights around the yarn wreath, and secure in place with a floral pin. You can use another floral pin to hold the excess wire next to the battery pack in place as well.
Step Four. Apply a liberal amount of glue to the top back of the yarn wreath and stick the battery pack in place. Make sure you place the pack with the sliding door up or you won’t be able to change out the batteries!
Hope you enjoyed this tutorial! As you can see, just change out the yarn or Moon Lights (Darice has tons of really fun options!) and you can make a completely customizable yarn wreath to match any decor or season!
