Festive Fall Wreath

IMG_1714

Autumn! The season of Pumpkin Spice Lattes and Turkey Time. (Okay, I made that last one up…) It always feels like the beginning of fun and family time.

We celebrate Canadian and U.S. Thanksgiving in our house, so there’s plenty to feel festive about. And the season also marked a year since we bought the house — another thing to celebrate!

I made this wreath by wrapping Lion Brand Homespun yarn around a foam ring (from Michaels, or any craft store) and securing the end with a pin. That’s important, because it will let me undo the wreath and reuse the foam and yarn next year, if I want something different.

(Call me cheap, but I think those rings are ridiculously expensive, given that they’re basically packing foam!)

I had fun scouring Ravelry for leaf and flower patterns for my wreath. I made them with scrap yarn, and also secured them with a straight pins. I actually found a pack of pins with pearly coloured ends at the dollar store, which was great because they add a bit of shine.

So, what did you make this week?
