Halloween yarn WreathI love fall. It is my favorite time of year and it is also the start of decorating for the holidays! No offense to Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day, but there is only so much decorating you can do for those. Halloween is coming and here is an easy way to get ready for it.

What You’ll Need:

  • Wool-Ease Yarn from Lion Brand or a Super Bulky weight yarn in your favorite Halloween colors (I only used 1/2 skein of black and orange and just a little of the cream)
  • Styrofoam wreath form
  • Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
  • Pins

This really couldn’t be easier, you just start putting a little glue on the wreath to get the yarn started and then you just start wrapping. Be sure you covering up the white of the Styrofoam. You can measure out your wreath to be sure you get equal stripes if you want, but I just eyeballed it.

On a flat surface start wrapping the yarn with one hand while you hold the center down flat with the other. Make some different sizes to make it look interesting. Once I had the rosettes the right size, I use pins to hold the yarn in place and then used the glue gun to make a flower shape that would catch yarn. Let is dry for 10 – 30 minutes and then remove the pins.

When your rosettes are done, start arranging them on your wreath!
