Create a yarn wrapped spring wreath with yarn that has extra sparkle! Thank you to Premier Yarns for sponsoring this post.
I realized last week that I still had my Valentine’s Day wreath hanging on the door. Oops. I wasn’t quite ready to put out my Easter wreath, and I had a few blank wreaths in the craft room. I spied this sparkly yarn over on the Premier Yarns website, and I decided to use a skeins of Premier Spangle Yarn in Caribbean Sparkle to put a new spin on an old favorite– a yarn wrapped wreath.
Have you ever made a yarn wrapped wreath? I adore the look, but the time that it takes to wrap the wreath is consuming. Wrapping this wreath took me about an hour, and this isn’t counting the time that it took me to wrap yarn into a tight yarn ball. However, the end result is always worth the effort!
- Glue or tape
- Straw wreath with the plastic still on
- 2 skeins of Premier Spangle Yarn in Caribbean Sparkle
- Yellow forsythia flowers, faux
- Hot glue gun and hot glue
- Fabric strip to create hanger
Wind the Premier Spangle Yarn in a tight yarn ball. Wrap the yarn around the wreath, securing with glue or tape. This will take a while, so settle in with a good TV show or movie. It took me a skein and a half to fully cover the wreath. I covered the wreath once and then went back over any “bald” spots again with the second skein.
Cut pieces of the faux flowers. Hot glue the flowers around the wreath.
To create a hanger for the wreath, I cut a piece of fabric into a strip and then knotted it around the top of the wreath. This is just one way to create a hanger. You can also use twine or even a plastic zip tie.

This is such a great color scheme!
I may have to try this technique for my next wreath! I love the blue with the yellow Forsythia branches. It is perfect for Spring!
