Guest Post: Holiday Wreath


Today’s guest post is a beautiful wreath!

Thank you, Amy, for letting me be a guest blogger today on Nap Time Crafters! My name is Erika and I am the creator of Artful Rising where I encourage you to get-your-rear-in-gear to Create. Inspire. Change the World. Join the conversation today and receive your own ebook on following your dreams.

Now, let’s get started on this easy peasy holiday wreath!
Materials:
Styrofoam wreath (mine is 12′)
stein of yarn
felt scraps for the flowers
ribbon (optional to hang–I did  need it)
Much To Do: (not really)
Begin wrapping the wreath form with the yarn. I used this fluffy stuff since I already had it on hand–leftover from knitting hats. No need to worry about gluing anything; the tail end will be held in place as you wrap the form. I wrapped around the form twice to ensure there were no white spaces showing (you can cover the form up with coordinating fabric before adding the yarn if you are super industrious).
Once you get to the end, clip the yarn and tuck into the back of the wreath.
Cut out your felt flowers. I used my Sizzix but it would be really easy to just cut out different sized circles. I used stick pins to attach the flowers to the wreath–no messy glue and the flowers can easily be moved!
I did not have to attach a ribbon to hang the wreath but you can if your wreath does not stay.
That’s it! A super easy way to dress up a door or wall. I hope everyone has a great Christmas season with many blessings. Be sure to stop by the Artful Rising Monday link party to show off your favorite creations and posts!
