Welcome friends!  Today is day 2 of the Welcome Home Christmas Tour, and I’m sharing my foyer decorated for Christmas and also a gorgeous DIY yarn wreath tutorial.  Be sure to visit my lovely friends at the bottom of this post for more holiday inspiration!

Welcome Home Christmas Tour

Yarn Wreath Supplies:

  • Styrofoam Wreath
  • Yarn, I used two different kinds
  • Some kind of fancy garland with wire

Tie a knot with your first yarn (tuck the loose end under) and keep wrapping until the wreath is covered.  Alternate thicknesses by overlapping in some areas.

Do the same with the second yarn, making sure to let the first peek through sometimes.

Take your garland and attach it to the wreath by wrapping the yarn tightly around it.  Shape as you go and leave some strands free.  At the end, tie the end of the yarn in a knot and tuck it under.

I hung the wreath on the coat closet door.  Here’s the rest of my foyer decorated for Christmas (and yes I had to open the front door to take pictures, while it was snowing!):

The mirror was a yard sale find and the table was from Craigslist.  It took me a long time to find the right pieces for my foyer and I love these two together!

    Pretty wreath! I think I’d leave it out all winter to add some sparkle to your foyer. You’ve created a festive and welcoming entrance for your holiday guests. I’m looking forward to seeing the rest of your decor.
