{create} holiday wreath

I had a goal this holiday season. I would make a wreath. There are so many cute ones out in bloggy-land and at least one needed to hang in my home. So, while I did make the lovely wreath I'm sharing with you today, I cannot take credit for the idea.

I'm sharing it anyway, because I think you should all make one. :) It was so, so, so easy. I literally created it one night Thanksgiving weekend while watching a movie. It's very festive and I love that it looks very wintry and can be used past the holidays. I found the tutorial on Take Heart.

I found my yarn at a specialty yarn store near my house. It is sooooo soft. An added bonus was that it hides mistakes really well. I was actually really surprised at how many weirdnesses the yarn absorbed.

My favorite part, though? The flowers were a cinch. I have a huge problem with fabric flowers. They are completely frustrating to me for some reason, but I had so much fun making these and I love how they look.

My one hint? Danielle recommends using a plastic wrapped straw wreath. Please listen to her. I used Styrofoam (because I already had one on hand) and I can really see how plastic would be easier to wrap.

I'm still looking for a home for the wreath, because I'm still not done Christmas decorating! But, look for the wreath when I do take you on a tour of my holiday digs. :)

So, if you want a quick and beautiful wreath to add to your holiday decor, pop on over to the Take Heart blog. And, let me know if you make one. I would love to see how yours turn out! What crafty projects are you all taking on this month?

** Update: I'm adding this wreath to Centsational Girl's Christmas Craft Party. Pop over here to check out all the great holiday crafts! :)
