A New Wreath For Spring!

The wreath hanging on my front door has been there for 6 months, and it is starting to look pretty daggy.
Made from patty cake pans, beads and the petals from a bunch of fake flowers, it has faded and been damaged in the weather.

So, time to start fresh. I stripped it back to its original plain cane form

With my current obsession with wool, a wrapped wreath seemed to be the obvious answer!

So much colour!

So, to start I tied then end of my first colour around the wreath and started wrapping.

For the next colour, I just tied the two ends together, trimmed, and kept wrapping.

Once completely wrapped, I just tied the final end to the piece of wool I first tied on. Complete circle!

To add a little bit more interest, I made three tiny pom poms to tie to the base.

And it’s ready to hang on my door!
