Taking Yarn to the Next Level

Am I the only one crazy about anything chunky knit!? These past few weeks it has really been growing on me. I don’t know if it has something to do with the weather or if it’s just a phase i’m going through, I want everything chunky knit. This wreath was inspired by my chunky knit blanket. Every time I make something I really like, I try and find different ways to re-create it just because I like doing it! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ That’s what keeps me going and DIYS never get boring that way! ๐Ÿ˜€

DIY Wreath

Original idea

Okay originally I planned on adding poms poms to this wreath and I wanted cute multi-colored ones but, I realized It wouldn’t match a single thing in my house.ย  My home decor style is constantly evolving and I’m starting to realize I’m liking more neutral and minimalist spaces.ย  So instead of my colorful multi-colored pom poms I went with wood beads which I absolutely love.ย  If you love more color in your home then theirs an idea! ๐Ÿ˜€ Go POM POMS ALL THE WAY! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€


What You’ll Need

  • 18″ Floral Craft Ring
  • ย Chunky yarn (I used 2 28.5 foot pieces)
  • scissors
  • needle and thread (I used a bigger needle and some heavy duty thread)
  • ribbonย  (wired ribbon might work better)
  • Hot Glue

Here’s a quick video

Looped Braid Instructions

To make this wreath you’ll be using a similar technique to the one I showed you in my chunky knit blanket tutorial. The only difference will be doubling the yarn. Once you double your yarn create your first loop and keep pulling out loop after loop to create your braid once your ready to tie it off. Take your tail one end of your braid feed it through the last loop and tie it in a knot. Then feed what’s remaining back into the braid. Before attaching your braid to your craft ring you’ll need to fluff it up more by pulling on each side.

Attaching to your Craft Ring

Use some hot-glue to attach your craft ring to your wreath then use some heavy duty thread with a needle to secure it even more. You can skip this step if you use a lot of hot glue.

Finishing Touches

To finish off your wreath use hot glue to attach your wood beads and add your choice of ribbon. You can choose to sew on your beads I went with glue since it probably cut the time in half. That’s it! Wasn’t the so quick and easy? ๐Ÿ˜€
