Awhile ago I created this Starfish Yarn Wreath for Crafts Unleashed. I realized that I never posted it here and with summer here I thought it was the perfect time.
I grew up about 5 miles from the beach in Southern California. I never realized how much the beach lifestyle is in my blood until I moved away when I married my Air Force husband. Now that I have experienced living in different states I realize just how much “California” I am. I have an affinity for anything that reminds me of the beautiful beaches. So I have several starfish and other items around my home to always keep the beach with me. My love for all things beachy inspired this beautiful Starfish Yarn Wreath.
Step 1: Collect your items (wreath form, yarn, starfish, hot glue, and ribbon)
Step 2: Glue the end of your yarn down to the wreath form to begin wrapping.
Step 3: Wrap your wreath form in yard, moving around the form as you go. If you want, you can glue down the yarn in places as you go. Cut the yard and glue down the end once you have made your way around the entire form.
Step 4: Use hot glue to attach the starfish.
Step 5: Add ribbon to the wreath for easy hanging.
This wreath was fairly simple to make and didn’t take long to make….but it sure looks beautiful. I love when that happens….a simple quick project and beautiful too. Fabulous.
It screams beach don’t you think? I think it should be hanging in a lovely beach cottage somewhere.
If you happen to be taking a beach trip this summer….keep your eyes open for starfish along the shore. You could make your own Starfish Yard Wreath to showcase your souvenirs.
