Christmas Wreath

 This was my inspiration for my wreath this year.
Maybe I should say Pin-spiration!
Yes, I saw this on none other than the all mighty Pinterest!

This is my version.
 I had never done a yarn wreath before.
And honestly...
I doubt very highly I will do another.
They are HARD!
For me anyway.
I tried to do the candy cane effect.
But after an hour of trying to get it to look right I gave up.
And just wrapped it all in red.
laaaaaaazzzzzzyyyyyy!
I got the picks from Hobby Lobby.
And the snowflakes?
Ornaments I have had for a few years.
So pretty on my door!

Well I need to go get prepared for another BIG storm here in Utah.
Make sure we have candles ready, in case power goes out again.

I feel ya on the yarn wreaths! They are a pain...But they do look pretty afterwards! :) Your wreath looks great without having the candy cane effect.

it looks great.. and i felt the same way when I made my first wreath.. if you get a smooth all round foam wreath they are easy to wrap and it makes you want to make more!

It looks so pretty! I haven't tried a yarn wreath yet. I love the way they look, but I am very impatient, so well see:) I love the snowflakes and picks you used. Gorgeous!!

Hello Mandi with an "i", I'm Mandy with a "y"! Sorry, I couldn't resist!:)

I've seen your wreath at a few different parties and wanted to comment on how pretty it is. I love the red and the simplicity of it. Wish I had some extra time before the holidays to copy cat it.

Many blessings to you and family this holiday season.
