Scrubby Yarn Wreath

This is a fun way to use scrubby yarn and it does not involve any crocheting. Because of the characteristics of scrubby yarn being fringy and sparkly, it is a fun yarn to use to wrap around other objects as well and gives them the appearance as if a Christmas tree garland was being used.



Scrubby Yarn Christmas Wreath

Time required to make one wreath: about 2-3 hours due to drying time of the paint

Difficulty Level: Easy

Material List:

Scrubby Yarn Wreath Materials

- styrofoam wreath of choice
- scrubby yarn in the colors of sparkly red and sparkly green
- acrylic paints in the colors of red and green
- paint brush
- 12 x 1 centimeter pressed paper balls
- 12 wooden skewers
- hot glue gun

Instructions for the wreath:

Scrubby Yarn Wreath Tutorial 1
1. Paint the wreath shape with green acrylic paint. This is highly recommended, because the scrubby yarn is thin and the white of the wreath will easily show through if you were to not cover an area thoroughly. Let the wreath dry completely. Once the paint has dried, wrap the wreath with the green scrubby yarn until it is entirely covered.

2. For the same reason as above, the 12 pressed paper balls were painted red, too. These are placed on the wooden skewers to make the painting easier and to keep your fingers clean.

3. Keep the red balls on the skewer to make wrapping the balls with the yarn easier. Occasionally add a drop of hot glue to the ball to secure the yarn. Then cover that drop of glue with yarn to hide it. Wrap the ball until it is entirely covered with the yarn and then remove it from the skewer.
