Yarn Wreath

(Click on photo to enlarge)

Oh my, it's been over a month since I posted.  Guess it's about time. 
This wreath is so quick, easy and quite inexpensive to make.  Start with a wire clothes hanger and shape it into a circle.  Go to your scrap yarn bin and wind several balls with any color yarn you might have on hand, any size and number desired. Use a pair of pliers to take the clothes hanger apart at the top so there is an open end.  Then ‘skewer’ the balls of yarn thru the middle and feed them onto the clothes hanger in desired color sequence.  Reattach the wire at the top of the clothes hanger to enclose again.  Add a seasonal decoration, sprig or spray at the top and stick a pair of knitting needles thru a ball of yarn where desired.  Change out the decoration at the top to coincide with a holiday or season.  Hang by the hook at the top of the clothes hanger and enjoy.


  1. very creative. And you used up some yarn with little effort!

    1. Thanks. But I have to admit that it's not my brainchild. This is how I made mine from several others I've seen.
