A Mini Yarn Wreath

Yes, I’m actaully still making Christmas presents. There were some projects on my mind that I just didn’t quite get to. I still want to, so why not keep going? Everyone likes getting presents even if they are late, right???

My wedding was a beach wedding over 5 years ago. We bought a bunch of shells for the decorations, including a bunch of tiny red starfish…. Lately I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with these left over shells and starfish. I’ve given away a bunch of the shells, sand dollars and the large starfish, but keep finding them here and there around the house! But even with the ones I’ve given away, I’ve still got a bunch. What to do with the little red starfish???

And as you know, I love a good yarn wreath!

Pretty simple!

Step 1: Materials:


Small Stryofoam Wreath


Hot Glue Gun and Glue


Step 2: Wrap the yarn around the wreath form.

Step 3: Layout the starfish design.

Step 4: Rotate the wreath and glue the starfish down as close to the original design as possible. Then go back and add a few more!

Step 5: Pick your ribbon. I couldn’t decide… brown?? cream??? The husband had to make the final call for the cream!

That’s it, easy easy easy! And why couldn’t I get this done before Christmas??? hmmmmm….

Are you still making Christmas presents??? Or have you moved on, like most people?

  1. I made one of these and posted it on my blog as well. I love the colors you used! I absolutely love the wall color in that room!

  2. I really like this wreath! I have always liked hanging a wreath in my room since I was a kid and I still do. I think they look auspicious and welcoming all year round. This one in particular looks fantastic! I dig the red stars; they look festive without being tied to any particular holiday. I just imagined one like this but with red hearts for Valentine’s Day. Thanks for your awesome and candid blog; I enjoy it so much.

  3. love it. I agree with Lorraine, I think I/m going to try to do one for V-day with hearts, thanks for sharing
