Take a vote! Yarn wrapped wreath project inspiration.

Vote for your favorite idea! The fate of this wreath is in YOUR hands!
 So last fall, almost an entire year ago, my sister gave me a heap of leftover yarn she did not want. I decided to make a yarn wrapped wreath. So I started... and never finished! I swear I try not to make this a habit, but starting something and not finishing it, unfortunately, is the story of my life!  

Just about a week ago I came across the half finished wreath and decided I would leave it's fate up to all of YOU! I am going to share some ideas I like and then you can vote on your favorite ideas!

 Here was the start of my wreath. I used a foam wreath ring from my local hobby store and some basic white yarn. I tied a knot and started to wrap.....

TIP: Wrap really tight and go ahead and wrap right over your extra knot yarn tail. (the little piece of string hanging from the knot)

Once you wrap about 20 times, use your hands and push/slide the yard down so it's nice and tight. 

After, oh, a few hours... you'll have this! I will not lie, this took a very long time, but I was watching a movie while I did it, so it went by quickly! 

Now it's fate is up to YOU! Here are some ideas I like...

Should I make a Halloween wreath like this one from i heart nap time ?
 I love the black lace and the word spooky!
 (I know it's not white, but use your imagination, these are just ideas)

Maybe I could make a fall wreath like this beautiful one by DECORCHICK! I love the chunky stripes and the floral accents!

Maybe I should just keep it simple.... like this one from the Etsy shop ItzFitz.
What do you think?

Lastly, maybe I could make a winter snowflake wreath like this one from! I could add fun white snowflakes over the entire white yarn wreath... and I think there might have to be some sparkle too!

HELP! Vote for your favorite ideas below.

  1. I like the Spooky one best. I am loving grey with pops of color. With that "school glue" white, your blank canvas made me think of back to school and what a cute idea that would be to add some "school spirit" to that wreath and make it for back to school....I think it would also make a cute decoration in a classroom for a teacher as well. :)

  2. They are all neat! My favorite is the snowflake!

  3. Snowflake! Maybe this will be enough time to get it done by this xmas! LOL Good luck and be sure to post pics.

  4. The snowflake wreath !

  5. Snowflake4, all the way. Gorgeous and elegant.

  6. I love the idea of "keeping it simple." Add flowers and ribbon...something that can be kept up throughout the year.

  7. I love idea #2 the best but all are beautiful!

  8. I also like something about each idea, especially the Spooky wreath, but even before I saw your idea pics I thought what a perfect background fpr winter snowflakes in white & an icy light blue with sparkle. Yes, we must have sparkle!

  9. they are all neat but snowflake gets my vote

  10. I just love the colors in project 3. The blue with the flower.
