Patriotic Yarn Wreath
I have seen a few of these yarn wreaths around the internet and decided to do my own take on one. Here is what I came up with.
To make the wreath, I started out with a foam wreath form from the Dollar Store and some red, white and blue yarn.
I used the hot glue gun to glue the beginning and end of the yarn as I wrapped it around the form. I looped the red and white 20 times for each section of the stripes.
When it was fully wrapped, I used the Simply Charmed cartridge to cut three stars out for the side. I added faux stitching lines around the outside. I used the Don Juan Cricut cartridge to cut the USA out of blue glitter paper for the center of the stars. The stars were attached with hot glue.
