Fall Ombre Yarn Wreath

I originally shared the tutorial over at A Little Tipsy on Sept. 3, 2014.


I shared this tutorial over at A Little Tipsy the beginning of the month and want to share it with all of you as well.
It is an easy wreath and perfect to spruce up your home for fall.


 Here is how you can make one for yourself.

Supplies: 
-Wreath Form
-Yarn- 3 in the color of your choice- light, medium and dark in shade
-Twine
-Ribbon
-Fall Berry Picks
-Other fall picks (optional)
-Hot Glue Gun

I began by marking the wreath form in four spots where I wanted to start and stop each color of yarn.

Start by wrapping the lightest yarn color first on the top portion of the wreath.

When it is time to start the second, medium color of yarn, overlap the first color slightly leaving space between the the new color yarn so you can see the light shade through.

Wrap the second color yarn down both sides of the wreath form.

Then wrap the third, darkest color across the bottom of the form again overlapping the previous color.

I wanted to add more texture, so I took some twine and wrapped it in the center of the darkest green on my wreath.

I then tied a ribbon and bow in the center of the twine and added some fall colored berries.

I just pushed the berry picks through and behind the twine behind the ribbon so the bow would cover it up.

I used a small piece of yarn to create a loop on the top to hang it.

 And that's it!! 

You now have a pretty new fall wreath to display! 


One of the best things about this wreath...it only cost me $4.00 because I only had to buy the wreath form since I had everything else on hand from past projects! LOVE THAT!!

Before we begin today, we have added another hostess!
Please welcome Beth from Farm Fresh Vintage Finds!!

A little about Beth and her blog:
Farm Fresh Vintage Finds is the story of Beth a furniture artist, kitchen cabinetry painter, DIY’er and hopeless remodelacholic. Passionately curious about all things "junk", Beth loves to fly by the seat of her pants from project to project. She is hopelessly obsessed with thrifting and repurposing and loves taking all sorts of items and making them something new to love. She and her husband bought a dilapidated farmhouse (circa 1827) in 2001 and have been repurposing and remodeling ever since. Her shop, located in the barn on their farm, opened in June of 2012. Come along for the ride as she conquers projects one, two and sometimes three at a time.
