craft club book club “The Bluegrass Skirt Society” got crafty again this month. We were inspired by this fun etsy shop. We got together for some wine, food, chit chat and crafting. Each of us made a very cool wreath. I find it interesting that each of our wreaths kind of looks like us. If you know us, you could easily match us up to our wreaths. There are a million variations you can make and it’s so easy and fun.
First you buy a Styrofoam wreath form and your choice of yarn and start a’ wrapping. This is easy – but also time consuming…..do it while you watch TV. It took about an hour to wrap the wreath. Trial and error taught us that you don’t have to be careful about lining up each pass of the yarn evenly….just be messy…..it will all work out. Also – it doesn’t really matter if you get the rounded wreath forms (like shown in my pic) or the squared ones….they both turn out cute.
Then remove the cat from your yarn wrapped wreath and make some cute flowers out of felt and glue them on. Mine were spirals cut from felt and then wrapped up and glued on. But there are a million ways to cut out flowers from felt – just google it.
