Make a woven yarn wreath to spruce up your dining room chairs or add a cute touch to your front door.

I love making craft projects that use common supplies – like yarn – but in a fun new way. When most people hear the word yarn, knitting or crocheting typically come to mind. But not this time.

This time we are going to use yarn to create a super cute wreath. I actually used this chunky yarn last fall when creating my Dollar Tree mop pumpkins. Yarn is just an overall easy material to work with and it gives you great coverage, no matter what you’re using it on.

WHY I LOVE THIS PROJECT

You’ll want to make sure and use yarn that has some texture to it, but I particularly like this kind because of its thickness and softness. Not to mention, making this wreath only takes a few supplies, most of which you will be able to pick up at your local Dollar Store or Craft Store.

I love the idea of making mini wreaths during the holidays and wintertime, especially to spruce up an area such as my dining room. I created several of these to hang on my dining room chairs and my office chair. It added a nice touch without being over the top.

Not to mention, as I said before, there are NO knitting skills necessary.

SUPPLIES NEEDED

TUTORIAL: HOW TO MAKE A WOVEN YARN WREATH

Follow this quick video, or read the step-by-step directions below:

  1. Grab 3 long, equal lengths of yarn (at least 12 feet long).
  2. To get it started, place the three strands together and weave them in and out and back and forth a few times. Then, tie it in a knot.
    tie the end of the yarn in a knot to secure on back of wreath form
  3. Repeat the weaving process (in and out, back and forth) until the entire wire form is filled with the yarn.
    weave yarn through metal wreath form
  4. When you get to the end of a section, push all of your yarn tightly so you can weave more through that section’s space.
  5. Once you are finished, you can spread the yarn out and cover up the section separator piece.
  6. Cut a piece of greenery and feed it through a section of the yarn. You can place the greenery piece wherever you want, but I chose the bottom of the wreath.
    add greenery and a ribbon bow to the bottom of the wreath
  7. Lastly, wrap your greenery with ribbon and finish it with a simple bow.
  8. To hang it, use an additional piece of ribbon cut to the length you desire.

** TIP: Lambs ear and boxwood greenery work perfectly for this project; however, you can use any greenery of your choice.

***NOTE: You will most likely have to use two sets of 12 foot long, 3-strand yarn pieces to cover the entire wire wreath form.

  1. I came across your blog and feel the same in that crochet and knitting is not for me. But I really want to work with yarn. Love this wreath and trying to do it but really could use a video or some more photos from different angles. I’m still going to attempt what I think you are saying to do though.
