How To Make A Winter Wreath


I'm here again!

Are you surprised?

I might be. 

Just a little.

I have this wreath I wanted to show you.

Actually two wreaths I wanted to show you.

Are you ready?

Look at this!

I mean isn't that adorable?

I like it so much that I'm going to make a bigger one just like it next year.

I actually made a bigger one.

For the front door - 

It was cute, too.

But there was a problem.

It doesn't fit between the door and the storm door.

So I put it on the storm door.

Then it stormed.

And the clear tape I hung it with broke.

And the wreath fell into the snow.

And the little trees went everywhere.

I had to dig them out.

So I put the wreath away and used the scarf and trees elsewhere.

That's the life-cycle of a wreath around here. 

Two days.

Like a fly.

That's how old it was when it died.


Don't you want to know how I made these really cute wreaths?

If you don't you can leave now.

If you do then keep reading.

How to make a winter wreath:

Get a wreath. Any kind or size will work.

Get a wreath.  Like this one that would work for a front door

Or a smaller one like this.

Or get one from your basement like I did.

Then you need to find something to wrap snow part of the wreath with.

I was cheap and used a basic white yarn (Red Heart Super Saver Jumbo in White) to cover my "snow" area.

Then I wrapped the fancy yarn over that. I used Red Heart Fur yarn. I'm really glad I have some left over. I know there will be something fun to do with it. It is SO soft!

 Then all you have to do is stick your trees in. 

I bought a bunch of trees last Christmas at JoAnn at like 90% off. 

I found these trees on Amazon. They look nicer than the ones I used!

I also found these green ones. These are a great buy. I think I will use green trees in the one I make for the front door next year because you can see them better. You can easily frost them a little bit more if you want more snow on them.

You can be creative with what you use for your snow. 

Did you notice what I used in the big door wreath? A winter scarf! It's a gorgeous scarf, but too scratchy for me to wear. 

I think a plaid or buffalo check fabric would look cute as well.

Look how pretty that yarn is!

It reminds me of Sammy's fur.


So now you know what to do . . .

Make a winter wreath!

Tell me what new decoration you made for Christmas or winter decor this year.

And then,

have a great weekend!

Those are both really cute, Karen, but it is sad that one bit the dust (er-snow) after only two days!

You did a great job on them. I don't even have a winter wreath up this year because so much of my stuff is packed away in a warehouse.

Hope you have a great weekend- xo Diana

The white yarn reminds me of a labradoodle, and it’s cute on your wreath.

Oh, I love your wreath project, especially since it looks like your kitty's fur! How sweet...Sammy is adorable- what a beauty!

And that fur yarn looks so soft - just like fluffy snow! It's so pretty in the wreath with the bottle brush trees! What a fun thing to make! You're so creative! :)

Blessings, Net
