Spring Yarn Wreath

I love crafting! It's so fun making things and having an excuse to hang out with friends.  Last week our inspiration was this.
Wreaths are so fun to make and you could make one for every month of the year if you want! I only hesitate to do that because of the lack of space in our little townhouse. Someday I'll have enough room for a storage room of just our seasonal decorations I have made. I actually know of a dentist, whose wife has a room filled with organized shelves just for her decorations, its awesome!

For this wreath you wrap the yarn around it until the form is completely covered. Then I chose to make two types of felt flowers for my wreath.
The first one is made by cutting a piece of felt-long ways to a thickness you desire. The thicker the felt, the bigger the flower will be.
Next, hot glue the ends together and cut notches down the felt-like this.
The thinner of strips you cut, the fluffier the flower will be.
Then, roll it up and hot glue it.
For this next flower, Cut a circle out of the felt and cut it spirally, like this.
Then, start from the inside and roll it tightly. I hot glued it multiple times as I rolled the felt so it would stay tight.
Lastly, place the flowers how you want on your wreath and hot glue them.
 Happy crafting!
