It is not at all complicated- clearly. However, it did take more time than I expected- 1 hour to wrap the batting, 4 hours for the yarn.
Step 1 ~ Wrap batting around a wreath form. Notes: I used tacky glue- too lazy for the glue gun, use scrap batting-mine was multiple randomly sized/shaped pieces, any type of wreath form (vine, floral, foam,etc.) works-this was laying around, it was supposed to be a black feather one for Halloween Why? It gives the wreath more "fullness" and a rounder, curvier shape.
Doesn't Chester look cute all framed?
Step 2 ~ Wrap the yarn. Notes: I used tacky glue- too lazy for the glue gun, the whole skein was too cumbersome to work with so I wound and cut little balls to work with, I did two "coats" Why? The first was to make it (kind of) straight, the second was to give full coverage and texture.
Step 3 ~ Add embellishments. I made the flowers from this site- she has some pretty cool yarn wreaths too. Notes: again, too lazy for the glue gun, make some practice flowers and extras to try different size, the pearls were stickers (that I added glue to) in the Michael's dollar section
I need to get a wide ribbon to hang it from
Should I add a larger purple above the gray one? Or maybe a smaller cluster on the upper left hand side (like the 9-10:00)?
There are endless options, it is super addictive, and cheap to boot. I might need to make more- different seasons, different holidays.
As an aside, I really wanted to make a holly berry (marron and champagne colors) but I can't find any stems. Is it really a Christmas exclusive item? Annoying.
