I wanted a different wreath for my front door this year. I wanted it to be bright and whimsical and different from what I usually have. While wandering around Michael's trying to figure out what I was going to do, the yarn seemed to reach out and touch me. I don't usually do anything with yarn and always overlook it. So glad I didn't overlook it this time because I just love my new yarn wreath!
I bought a chip board wreath frame and red, white and green yarn. I spent the next few nights wrapping the yarn in sections around the form. Felt roses were next followed by a vintage Santa figurine, a mica flake bottle brush tree and some tiny little presents. It was exactly what I was going for and it looks great on my front door!
I had a lot of yarn left over so I decided to make some yarn pom poms. They are really easy to make and turned out very cute. This pom pom garland looks so festive on my mantle!
I am keeping all of my Christmas decorations pretty simple this year and I am not bringing all of it out. I did add some new things however. I found these vintage Santa mugs at a yard sale this summer. They fit perfectly on my candle sticks and the bottle brush trees are such a fun touch. Not sure if I will leave them plain or decorate them...
I still have a lot of yarn left so I am not sure what I will be making with it. I just know that it is very fun to use in my crafts and I am glad that I didn't over look it like I have in the past! Can you see the cute stocking holders? The fabulous Miss BJ from Sweet Nothing's sent those to me last year. I love them and can't wait for the new stockings I ordered to get here so I can hang them.
My mom bought each of us girls one of these holiday signs at a craft fair recently. I love how it looks sitting up against my mantle. Thanks momma!
