Yarn Wreaths

Yarn wreaths look sleek and polished without all the bulkiness of a typical pine wreath. One of the nice things about yarn wrapped wreaths is that you can store them away in a box, and they won't get tangled or misshapen for next year's decorating. To achieve the polished look of wrapped christmas wreaths, start with a store-bought styrofoam or wicker/straw wreath. Consider wrapping it with poly or cotton batting first so the yarn wraps easily and with few bumps.

We recommend using thicker yarn because it will cover more surface area and the batting will stay put. Get creative by choosing colors like silver, red, gold and green, instead of the typical holiday fashions. Try wrapping wreaths with other materials like ribbon or floral tape to maintain the sleek look of wrapped homemade Christmas wreaths.

How to Make a Pine Wreath

Everyone knows the classic artificial wreath. Just as often as you see an artificial Christmas tree, you'll see an artificial wreath. Often times you have to rearrange the pine needles because they've gotten smashed during the year's stay in the basement. Half the fun of digging up your Christmas decorations every year is adjusting the artificial Christmas wreath needles so they look pretty on the door or in the window. Artificial pine is a great material to work with because it looks real, but you don't have all the mess of real evergreen or pine.

Working with an artificial pine wreath, you'll spend most of your time embellishing the wreath, rather than constructing the wreath itself. Go to any craft store during the holiday season and pick up an artificial pine wreath in a variety of sizes. Plan out the appropriate embellishments, based on the holiday theme you're trying to achieve, and have at it. Whether you're securing the embellishments with wire or a stapler, make sure you are careful!
