I have been loving my burlap wreath from this past fall but wanted to do something a little different for the spring. I started my yarn wreath a couple weekends ago and worked on it in small spurts over the past week. Over all, it probably took me about 3 hours to complete; the longest part was wrapping the wreath form and making sure that it was completely covered.
DIY Spring Yarn Wreath
- Wreath Form
- 2 Different Colors of Yarn
- Felt – However many colors you want
- Glue Gun & Glue Sticks
The first thing I did was score the foam wreath into 8ths so that I would know where to start and stop each section. Tie a piece of yarn around the wreath then wrap it around the form until the entire section is filled. You might need to overlap some pieces in order to completely cover the form. Once the section is full, tie a knot in the yarn and start again with the next color. Repeat these steps until the entire wreath is covered.
The felt flowers are made from a circle cut into a spiral. My circle was roughly 4-6 inches in diameter and the spirals were about 3/4-1 inch thick. Start wrapping from the center then seal the end with a dot of hot glue. I cut 2-3 out at one time and with sharp scissors this was an easy task.
With the wreath form covered in yarn and the felt flowers made, figure out how you want them arranged on the wreath and then use the glue gun to attach the flowers to the wreath. To finalize the wreath, cut a piece of ribbon about 1 foot long then glue it to the back of the wreath to form a loop so that it can hang.
I made a bunch more flowers then needed so I could have added more but I liked the smallish bunch in the corner.
I LOVE this wreath; the only thing I would change would be to have a slightly larger form so that it took up a but more space on the wall. I might need to put something in the middle though if it were larger. Are you decorating for spring yet? Let me know how you are decorating in the comments!
I think that this is so cute, it could even work for summer too!
Thanks! I’ll probably keep it up through summer.
Love it!! I never would have thought to do black & white, but it really makes the flowers pop. It looks great!! Pinned :)
I LOVE making yarn wreaths! There’s something about them that’s therapeutic. Great tutorial!
It was definitely a good project to do while watching TV. My cat kept trying to attack it though.
Happy WW and thank you for linking up and sharing with the OMHG WW link up! I hope you have a wonderful rest of the week! xx Ashleigh @SimplyWright

Nice spring wreath project! Featuring it at the party! Thanks for sharing it at the party! Hope to see you again this week. Pinned & shared.
I have had my eye on this wreath for a while now. I just LOVE it! And although it is labeled as a Spring Wreath, the colors of the flower can also be for the summer or simply changed out for others.
Would also love if you shared this at our Yarn Fanatic Party – http://eyeloveknots.blogspot.com/2015/06/yarn-fanatic-party-39-chalk-full-of.html.
I love good modern/graphic wreath! So pretty! My gauge of a good wreath is how well it stands out when you’re driving by the house and I bet this one really pops! Love It!

Very pretty wreath Kendra. I love all the bright colored felt you used to make the flowers. Perfect for spring!
This is such a lovely wreath, Kendra. I love the color and the felt flowers as well. Very festive through the spring and (as other people have mentioned here) for the summer too! Thanks so much for sharing this piece with us on #shinebloghop this week. We’re so glad you were able to join us :)

Love that these are materials that we usually have in our home. I can see how this can be concerted to any season.
