DIY Candy Cane Wreath - Doused in Pink - a fashion and lifestyle blog

DIY Candy Cane Wreath


I've always wanted to learn how to knit, it seems like it would be therapeutic. I bought a bunch of yarn ages ago with the intent of taking a class and came across it digging for some holiday decorations in the basement. After pondering what I could make with it, I decided on this candy cane wreath.



Supplies:
Red and white yarn
Foam wreath form
Ribbon
Holiday floral decorations
Measuring tape
Pen
Scissors


Start by measuring and marking off 2" - 3" sections across the wreath form. Tie one end of the red yarn to the wreath form and start wrapping. When you get to the next section you've marked off, cut the red string in the back of the wreath and tie to the white string. Wrap the white string around to the next section and keep alternating until the wreath is covered.




Insert the floral decorations into the wreath.


Add some ribbon, then you're done!


Hang your wreath and enjoy that grand feeling of accomplishment!


 Thanks for stopping by and reading today! Enjoy the weekend!

    This is beautiful!! I love yarn wreaths and there is so much yarn out there to pick from that it can be overwhelming sometimes in the yarn aisle. lol. It is awesome you had this already at home, though.
