Since a lot of people often decorate for Christmas right after Thanksgiving, I thought it would be timely to share a Christmas wreath idea today.
This one is a heart-shaped foam wreath form wrapped with a red yarn and embellished with white felt roses.
I also used a little green felt to make leaves for the roses. A green with red grosgrain ribbon was used as the hanger.
Very simple and not a lot of bells and whistles, but sometimes simplest is best.
While I have made my share of yarn-wrapped wreaths, doing a heart shape was new for me. The result is pretty, but I have to admit that wrapping it was much more awkward than doing a basic circle wreath, especially when it comes to the center point areas. It definitely took a lot of yarn to make sure those areas were well covered.
Actually, if you just switch out the ribbon, this would make a great Valentine’s Day wreath as well!

Can you tell I love making wreaths? Oh yes I do.
Hope you count your blessings tomorrow and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
