Looking for a new fall wreath for your front door? This one is an argyle pattern, which makes me want to wear a sweater. It’s fairly simple to make as well.
What you’ll need:
wreath (straw or foam)
yarn (gold, brown, pumpkin, two shades of gray)
felt (cream, burgundy, orange)
ribbon to hang
hot glue, scissors
Step one– Wrap the yarn. I used four colors to I evenly spaced them around the wreath. Hot glue on end, wrap till that section is covered and hot glue on the back. I usually wrap each section twice (one way and then back) to cover any little gaps.
Step two– Cut the diamonds. I did one per section, but you could do more. Hot glue the triangles down, let dry. Then wrap a contrasting color around so that they cross over the diamond.
Step Three– Make the flowers. To make the flowers shown, cut a bunch of small circles for each flower and one larger one for the background.
How many circles you will need depends on how big you want the flowers. Glue the outside layer first and then the inner layer. I did two colors, but you could do one or even an alternating pattern, which would be fun. Hot glue a button in the center. Hot glue on the wreath.
Step four– Use a piece of ribbon to tie to hang it. Raffia would be nice too.
And that’s it! Hang up for all your neighbors to be jealous of your gorgeous new fall wreath. 🙂
