An easy shamrock-hued yarn-ball wreath will have your front door ready in time for St. Patrick’s Day.
This seasonal wreath starts with leftover yarn in white and different shades of green. Hot-glue one end of one shade of yarn to a 14-inch foam wreath, and then wrap the yarn around the wreath until the foam is completely covered. Add dabs of glue at key points to keep the yarn in place. Next, wrap foam balls of different sizes—anywhere from 1 to 3 inches—with various shades of yarn. Wrap in all directions to add dimension and to cover the foam. Glue all of the balls to the wreath in a design of your choosing. Embellish with two knitting needles stuck into the top of the wreath, then hang this handmade lucky charm on your door and enjoy.
