Make it: Snowflake and Yarn Wreath

Pin It
Snowflake and Yarn Wreath

Decorate your front door with this crafty yarn and snowflake wreath. This is a great project for using up scraps of yarn. the snowflakes are glittered with ultra fine glitter and sealed with mod podge glitter for a mess free sparkle.

Mod Podge Glitter
Mod Podge Matte
21 Wood snowflakes
Ultra fine glitter - 4 shades of blue and green
Foam paintbrush
Wax paper
File folder
Wire wreath base
5-10 different yarns (blues and greens)
Scissors
8 Yards tulle trim
Hot glue
Mini ornaments


1. Using a foam paintbrush, liberally coat the wood snowflakes with matte Mod Podge. Working over a file folder, sprinkle the snowflakes with glitter, tap off excess glitter and set aside on wax paper to dry. Use the file folder to pour the glitter back into the storage jar. Repeat for maximum coverage. 2. Coat the items with glitter Mod Podge to seal the glitter. This prevents glitter from shedding.
3. Working in 6 feet increments, gather the yarn strands together. Tie the ends to the wire wreath and begin wrapping around the wreath. When you reach the end, tie off the ends. Repeat until the entire wreath is wrapped with yarn.
4. Use 3 strands of yarn to tie the snowflakes to the wreath.
5. Working on the backside of the wreath, hot glue the tulle trim around the wreath in a gathered fashion. On the front of the wreath add mini ball ornaments.
