Grass Wreath

Over on Pinterest, I saw a fun wreath made
primarily of a foam wreath form and fur yarn.
When I first published this post, I credited the incorrect
originator of this idea. Was the post that I saw on
Pinterest trying to steal someone else's work and idea?

Anyway, this seems to be the original blog post:

You need a green foam wreath form...

...and lime green fun fur (or eyelash)  yarn.
My wreath form is 16" across. It took one 55 yard skein 
of the eyelash yarn to cover it. 

             At first I could not find this color and tried to dye some white and other colors fun fur/eyelash yarn. Do not attempt.  The yarn is polyester and did not take up any dye.
I finally did find some locally but if you can't, you might need to order online.
Get the larger skein (55 yards I think).  It will be about $7 - $10. 

                  I lost the photos that I took of the construction process
          Did I accidentally copy them to an obscure file?
       Did I forget to have to memory card in the camera?

Anchor the end of the yarn and start wraping and
wraping and wraping the yard around the form
keeping the strands of yarn close together.
This is a re-creation of how to wrap the wreath with some of the non-dyeable fun fur yarn.
All the lime green yarn got used on the original wreath.

 When you get to the end of the yarn, secure it by tying off to an already wrapped piece of yarn.  This is what you end up with:

It is so darn cute and just want to "pet" it. 

I added the foam eggs on wires by sticking them into the foam
to make it Easter-y.  The wreath could be use for different
occasions just by changing out the decorations.

Since all these materials are weather-resistant, this wreath
can be used outside.  If it gets wet, you may need to "fluff"
the fur yarn with your fingers to perk it up.
The wreath form was $8, the yarn was $7, and the eggs were $7 if all are regular price.
If you look for sales or use coupons at the craft stores, it would be less.

I was underwhelmed by my cute, fuzzy wreath every time I pulled
   in my driveway. It just looked kind of "meh" from the street.

So I added a bow and clustered the eggs near the bow
instead of having them march "single file" around the wreath.

I wasn't happy with any single ribbon that I found.
The blue was not interesting enough and the pattern ribbon
was not wide enough so I combined the two ribbon in the bow.

I got a few more pre-made sparkle-y eggs while
I was shopping for the ribbon.

Ooops!The bow's tails are different lengths...
should I even them up?

The cute, fuzzy yarn wreath now looks better up
close AND at a distance. 
This is my 100th blog post.  It seems like everything that could go wrong,
 has gone wrong with it (including posting the above photo that is crooked).
I'm glad all blog posts are not this difficult or I would have given up already.

Thanks for coming by to see this fuzzy-wuzzy wreath...
I hope you will make one too! 


  1. I love it! What a fabulous idea, I can see it as a Christmas wreath, too.

  2. I pinned this same wreath earlier! The actual source is:

    so terrible that people are stealing via pinterest like that!

  3. That turned out really cute. What a clever idea. I LOVE stealing ideas that someone else has already figured out! xo Diana

    1. Isn't that the whole point of Pinterest? I think of it more like sharing ideas rather than stealing something. This is too funny-everyone knows if you pin or post about something, if it's on Pinterest, it's fair game for everyone to enjoy and share!

  4. I can see that cute wreath going right into summer! Maybe bees or butterflies on the grass. ~ Maureen

  5. very cute, stopping by from centsational girl's link!

  6. I seriously thought that you somehow did that with real grass until I scrolled down and saw that it was yarn! The texture and color matches the real grass that I planted perfectly! Wouldn't those things be cute paired together? Nice job, it turned out great!

  7. This is so fun. It looks like real grass. You find the best ideas.

  8. Love a good copy cat!
