rainbow wreath


My materials~
1 wreath
7 different colors of yarn
glue gun
I used a pencil to mark my wreath, so that I had the correct amount of space for all the colors of yarn.

I begin with yellow yarn and wrapped it around the wreath, in between my designated marks. I used my glue gun to tack the yarn to the wreath.

To break up the different colors, I used white yarn and wrapped it 5 times around the wreath.

Half way done.

All done!

I came up with a simple saying to add to the middle of my wreath. I stamped the saying onto scrap booking paper.

Making the pom poms! I found this handy dandy tool at Joann's.

All done! I hung it in my living room and I'm absolutely CRAZY about it! I just LOVE it!
