Yarn Flower Wreath – Crafts by Kids

My super crafty daughters and I have created a sweet new yarn flower wreath for our front door!

One of Addah’s Christmas gifts was a Martha Stewart knitting loom, and she’s kept pretty busy with it, weaving potholders and knitting squares for a blanket. She found directions in the booklet for creating yarn flowers and made several of them to cover the brim of her vintage Stetson (lovingly passed down from my Grandpa) for Hat Day at school. So cute… I really need to take a picture.

She had a lot of fun making those first few flowers, and it was her idea to make dozens of bright colored yarn flowers and use straight pins to decorate our front door wreath. It took us most of Spring Break Week, but we did it… and the results are just beautiful! We used a straw wreath form for the base, wrapped it with plain natural wool yarn, and then covered it with little flowers – I’d say probably 150 or so, really.

It was simple… and didn’t seem time-consuming, even though we made SO MANY flowers. I’m sure this was partially because it was during our “stay-cation” week, and partly because we were doing the project together and it was fun to keep adding the flowers and watch it all come together, little by little. Once the flowers were all in place, Lakin suggested that we add a couple of wire butterflies, and they were the perfect finishing touch.

I love that my girls are so imaginative and interested in being crafty. It really does my heart good.
