I made a new yarn wreath for my door this year, using a couple of sparkly yarns, some dyed vintage doilies, and a little Christmas house and tree. Happy Holidays!

It is subtle but not lost, the doily that looks to be the same color as the wall. Wink

I've been searching for some ideas to make a wreath and this seems easy enough to make, and budget-friendly.
Not to mention that it looks great too!

Thanks! Budget friendly crafts are the best crafts Wink The yarns I used are cheap ones from Michael's. I forget the names, but they are sparkly and were on sale. One has little sequins that don't show up in the pic but are lovely in person and the other was sort of a lacy mesh, not really actual yarn,but perfect for "snow." The little house and tree were items I already had. I put a tack nail into the wreath and glued the tree base to that so it would have a little level surface to stick to and stay upright, and stuffed some of the lacy yarn under the house and glued it all down, then attached the house with some long quilt pins. The doilies are attached with straight pins, so that if I get tired of this wreath I can reuse them.  Also so the glue doesn't show through the doilies.
