The Coveted Yarn Wreath

I have been busy like a little Christmas Elf getting my craft on and making lots of projects for Christmas!  Are you ready?  This wreath kicks off the Christmas Craft Frenzy!!

I found a wreath from Two Junk Chix on Pinterest months ago, and knew that it was it was the perfect replacement to the one that I have had on my front door for about 8 Christmas seasons.   Isn't she pretty??



I loved the idea, but wanted to mix it up to make it my own, so I changed up the color scheme a bit and added some pine cones. Hubby actually told me it was beautiful!  I must have done a good job, LOL!




Here's a closeup - I love the way the colors compliment my front door color!


Two Junk Chix provided a full tutorial on how they made the original - so hop on over there if you want to make one of your very own!  


Happy Christmas Crafting, you little elves you!!

  2. SO beautiful. I love the colors and mixing it with pinecones. If the wind would stop ripping wreaths of my door I would be tempted to make one. Great job!

  4. It's fabulous and the colors look wonderful against your door color (what color is that, btw? I want it!)
    I so want to make one of these wreaths, but I'm hopeless at knitting and I don't want to be a "poser" as they say!
