i made my first wreath yesterday. it's completely quirky, but maybe you're in to it. you can do your own spin. not a lot of rules here.
what you'll need:
a fat roll of yarn. i liked this ombre yarn in cinnamon hues. it gives a festive punch that doesn't feel trite.
16" styrofoam wreath form
decorative touches (i used vintage game pieces and birds)
an ornament for the center
hot glue gun
begin by wrapping garden wire around the form to make a loop to hang it on your door. make the loop top center.
next wrap the entire form in yarn. this is the most time consuming part of the project (er frustrating part cause my yarn kept getting in a knot. i digress).
next i attached these sweet birdies, available at your local craft store.
then i hot glued "noel" out of pompoms. you could also say peace, whatever floats your boat. i was inspired here. i also hot glued the game pieces (aren't they fantastic?).
i love pom poms.
lastly i hung an ornament (this was from rach, a lovely g) from the top with garden wire. voila!
