Styrofoam Plate Wreath's

I live about 2 hours away from craft stores like Hobby Lobby, Michaels and JoAnn Fabrics.
So that means I stock up on craft items when I go shopping
since I am not able to get to the stores very often.
And sometimes when I don't have a specific item
I have to be creative and use materials that are unique :)
I have been wanting to make a yarn wreath
so I used two Styrofoam plates.
And this is the end result....


Items Needed:
2 Styrofoam plates
yarn
hot glue
ribbon
fabric for flowers, pearls, buttons 
or anything you want to use to pretty-up your wreath

Trace a circle onto the back of both Styrofoam plates.


Cut out the circle ( I used a knife).
Place the plates (front sides) together
and apply hot glue to hold them together.

Wrap your yarn around and tie a knot.
Then continue to cover your wreath with yarn.
Make sure you hold your yarn tight so it doesn't shift too much.


And in a while you should have a beautiful yarn covered wreath.


The wreath is beautiful with or without embellishments
so you can decide what you want to to.
I added simple pearls
and tied on some pretty ribbon to hang the wreath.
I hot glued the bow on.






I used white yarn, added silver yarn at the top, 
fabric flowers and snowflakes for this wreath that I made.




And I used some silver balls that I found a while ago at Michaels in the decorating section.
I just cut them to the desired length and hot glued them to the back.




Perfect for the Holiday's.

Those are so pretty Stephanie!... I have alot of odds and ends of yarn left over from crocheting mufflers... maybe I'll try some of those on some smaller plates, you are so creative!... xoxo Julie Marie

How crative, you have the greatest ideas, this is so pretty. It would make a great christmas wreath too.
Hugs,Sylvia

Love it!! I love them both ... I like how you kept the adornment on the red one simple so the beauty of the variegated yarn did not get lost while the simplicity of the white/silver yarn supports the extra embellishment beautifully on the other wreath. Nicely balanced design!

Stephanie, what wonderful wreaths you have fashioned out of styrofoam plates. One could decorate them any way they choose. Great idea! Thank you for sharing with us and coming to my HOME. Hope you're having a lovely week, my friend.

Blessings,
Sandi

Hi Stephanie! Your wreath is so creative and beautiful. I am out in the country too and live about 40 miles away from the city, and with my health being a challenge sometimes it is not always easy to get into town. I can really understand what you mean. I moved here to my little town in Georgia, from Los Angeles and at first it was such a big change and I had a hard time adjusting to it. But as time went on, I began to love the peacefulness and simplicity that comes with "making do", and being creative with the supplies I have on hand. I hope you have a cozy evening tonight and thank you for all the sweet words you have left on my blog! With Love, Delisa :)

Hi Stephanie,
Very clever and resourceful. They turned out great and think of the money you saved. Styrofoam wreath forms are quite pricey. thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup.

This is really marvelous! A beautiful, inexpensive way to make a homemade wreath - I do appreciate you sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,

Isobel Morrell said...

What a great idea - and a really firm wreath as a result! They are so often so bendy and rarely last the whole Christmas week! Thanks for the idea.

Just "met" you on Debbi's Adorned from Above Party, have followed you - on both sites, and hope you'll visit us at www.ColdhamCuddliescallingcalling.blogspot.com soon too.

all the best. Isobel

Those are so pretty! Looks like a great mother/daughter project. I think my 5 year old could definitely help wrap up the plate in yarn. We'll probably try this one sometime soon. Thanks for the great idea!
