Looking for a fun craft to make with your little ones this Christmas? Why not try this cute yarn wrap Christmas wreath? They look great and are super simple to make. All you need is a paper plate, yarn and an embellishment or two, or three or four…
- Paper plate
- Yarn, assorted colours and textures
- Ric rac, pom pom trim, lace
- Sequins, beads
- Grey lead pencil
- Bowl to trace around
- Craft knife
Create a wreath shape from a paper plate, by cutting a circle from the inside of your paper plate. I used a bowl to trace around, and then cut the circle with a craft knife.
Wrap your wreath. To wrap your wreath, cut a length of yarn in your chosen colour, and simply hold the end of your yarn against the plate, and wrap the yarn over the top of the yarn end. Keep wrapping until you come to the end of your yarn, turn your plate to the back side and tie a knot to secure in place. Choose another colour of yarn and continue the process until your wreath is covered. Use as many colours and textures of yarn as you would like.
Once your wreath is covered in yarn it should look similar to the one below.
Time to decorate! Decorate your wreath with any embellishments you would like. I added ric rac and pom pom trim, embroidery floss with threaded beads and sequins, and I added some plaited and finger knitted strands of yarn.
I also made a large ‘tassel’ of ric rac, small tassels and pom poms. I tied these with yarn to the bottom of my wreath.
Here is the finished yarn wrapped Christmas wreath. Doesn’t it look great! I’m super happy with how it turned out.
My daughter Zoë made a wreath too! Zoë decided to glue her beads and sequins on instead of threading them. It looks so sweet in purples and pinks.
These Christmas are so much fun to make and look great too. Put on your favourite Christmas movie and start wrapping! We hope you have as much fun making them, as Zoë and I did.
