Spring Wreaths for the New Living Room!


I started these wreaths about three weeks ago but I got distracted and annoyed.  I was all excited because I saw these three straw wreaths at Salvation Army for $2.50 total!  Plus Jo-Ann had a deal on yarn.  So I went and picked out my new favorite colors (for our future living room).  Then started wrapping the wreath!  Only I didn't realize how hard it would be with a straw wreath because it it gets caught on EVERYTHING.  So it was taking FOREVER!  So I took a really long break from working on it.  I thought about and then would work on something else.

Then I finally realized I should just wrap it in duck tape!  It made the wrapping of the yarn SO much easier.  So while I only wrapped 1/3 of the large one the first time I worked on it... I finished all three in the night I tapped them off!  Then the next night I embellished then and now I get to enjoy them... Kind of.

They were actually made for my new living room but we aren't in there for another month so for now they are hung in a dark corner!  Still cute but I will have to show you what they look like in our new place once they go up in our living room!  Our new place has so many windows I will have fantastic light for shooting!  Sorry the not so great photos today but there was no way to bring anymore light into the area than I did.

Any ideas on the best way to hang these?  This is definitely not the way to hang these but for now it will work.

    My favorite is the blue with the brown embellishment. Very pretty. I haven't tried a yarn wreath yet, but everyone else is doing it. I better hop on the bandwagon. ;)
