DIY Bright Fall Yarn Wreath

I felt like getting a little crafty last weekend, and wreaths are usually my go-to project. I have been using the same leaf wreath for a few years, and wanted to switch things up a bit this fall. I found this yellow yarn wreath online that I thought looked really pretty against a black door (yes, my blue door has been painted black!), so I thought I would try to create something bright and fresh for fall.

I chose the yellow to pop off the black door (and we are partial to a black/gold college football team:), and jewel tones to add some depth and color. I cut little leaf shapes out of felt (free hand), placed them where I wanted them, and then hot glued them in place to the wreath.

The yarn wreath is super simple, but takes a patience! Simply start wrapping your yarn all the way around the wreath (mine is an 18") and secure the end with a dab of hot glue. I think the texture of the yarn adds a nice fall touch.

Total cost for the wreath came in right at $10, after purchasing the straw wreath, the yarn, and the felt pieces (and using a Hobby Lobby coupon).

I like that it feels a little like late summer and early fall all rolled into one. The pillows on my rockers are also jewel tones and it ties in well. I have yet to purchase any fall flowers, so once that is done, I will show you the full porch!

Have you started decorating for fall? Record breaking low temps for us in KC this weekend! If you need me, I can be found on the soccer fields this weekend…2 kids & 5 games!! Have a great weekend! xoxo
