I've been wanting to put up a wreath since the day after Halloween, and I had already bought some supplies to make one when I ran across a very cute yarn wreath online. I already had everything I needed, so I got to work!

This cost about $3 to make. The foam wreath, foam balls, and jingle bells all came from Dollar Tree. The yarn I already had. It's all Lion Brand. There's Lion Brand Homespun in Apple Green and Chili (I think), Jiffy in True Red and either Chili or Paprika (it was scrap yarn, so I don't remember, exactly), and Wool Ease Thick and Quick in Cilantro (the dark stripes).

So, here it is! Let me know what you think!

This is a great wreath, I can see all kinds of variations to suit your decor.
You could even scale it down and make ornaments by using drapery rings and embroidery floss.

I hadn't even thought about scaling them down for ornaments! What a great idea! I was just planning to use the extra yarn balls as ornaments/gift decorations. (I made way more than I ended up using). Now I'm going to have to look into making teensy ones.
