Make a Winter Wreath From A Scarf


https://fairmeadowplace.blogspot.ca


I like quick and easy projects and this is one of them.

Scarves and sweaters add an element of warmth to winter decorating.

Once you have everything ready, it goes together quickly.

Materials

A white scarf - mine happened to be an infinity scarf that was fringed on both sides, but, a regular scarf will do.

A 10" wreath form

Some snowflake ornaments from the dollar store

White yarn

Ribbon

Place the wreath form on the scarf and pull the scarf through the centre of the wreath.  Adjust the folds and gathers so they are evenly spaced.

Flip the wreath over and pull the other side of the scarf through the centre.
Adjust the gathers so that they are spaced evenly.

Using a fairly long piece of yarn (I didn't measure, but approximately 4 feet) tie one end onto the wreath and tie leaving a 4" piece of yarn dangling.

Wrap the entire wreath spacing the yarn until you reach the place you started.  Tie off to the 4" piece of yarn.

Reverse direction and wrap the wreath again so that the yarn crosses over the first wrap.

Tie off again to the 4" piece of yarn.

Adjust the fringe so that it peeks out all the way around.

 Decorate the wreath with snowflakes by tying various lengths of yarn from the top portion of the wreath.

You can tie the snowflakes onto the pieces of yarn or hot glue them to the pieces of yarn.


Once all the snowflakes are attached, gather the pieces of yarn attached to the snowflakes and tie a ribbon around all of them.  Knot the ribbon and then tie into a bow. 
I used a little hot glue at the back to keep the ribbon from sliding down.

Hang the wreath either inside our outside.

  1. This is super cute, Barbara, and so easy. And we all have scarves (though I'm not sure about a white one!) I've done a wrap-wreath with a white feather boa, wrapping it around the form to look like a feather cloud but I really love the scarf idea. Now I need to go through my scarves! This sounds like a fun easy project for a cold winter day -- and believe me, when it's like this, I go out only when I have to!

  4. Thank you. The wreath is so pretty. I used to wonder how people live in cold countries. We live near equator so our winters are very mild. But up north towards Himalayas the winters are cold. Enjoy your cold days. Lots of love to you. Sujatha.

    1. It is so nice to hear from you, Sujatha. I would like to be closer to the equator right now. The weather here promises to be warmer this week, we hope, but not as warm as your weather.

  8. I love this wreath. It is so pretty and perfect for winter. I always have trouble deciding what to hang on the door in the winter after I take down my evergreen Christmas wreath. Thanks so much for the tutorial.

  9. This is so cute! I wish I would have seen it before the holidays, but now that I have, it will give me a project to do ahead of time so I'll be all ready for next year. Ever since I had a storm door put on my front door I have a difficult time finding a wreath that's thin enough. I think this might work!

  14. Barbara, I made one and I love it! Mine's VERY different from yours. I used a lumberjack print scarf and no yarn. I'll have it in my next blog post and link back to you so people can see what it's REALLY like!
