Fall Wreath Two!

Thanks for all your great comments on the fall wreath I posted on Tuesday!  I'm back with another one that I was inspired to make from Rachel of Architecture of a Mom. I loved the look of the yarn wrapped wreath.

I found some awesome yarn at Michaels.  Perfect for fall.  Here's how it turned out:
After wrapping the wreath with the thread - I begun attaching some of the flowers.  I really wasn't loving it. So I took all the flowers off.  Yesterday I got down all my fall decorations and in there were these great glitter pumpkins and acorns.  So I put some burlap squares over the yarn, held it down with some pins, then added a few leaves and attached the pumpkins and  acorns.

Here's a close up:

And just because it took a lot of's a close up of the yarn wrap!

I'm going to be working on my last one........stay tuned!!!

Thanks for your visit!

This is GORGEOUS! (Feel free to make one for my door.)

Sorry I am so behind in commenting. I can't believe how much time looking and applying for jobs takes. Many of the applications have ESSAY QUESTIONS and take forever to fill out. Ugh.... I hoped I was done with essay questions forever but I guess not.
