Dollar Store Yarn & Willow Wreath

I’m into thin wreaths lately – they’re delicate and a little different and they look great hung on an armoire or a door knob – anywhere. Here’s an inexpensive wreath project for you — total cost: $3.00. Enjoy! XO, Camilla

A small wreath is easy to make and they can be placed anywhere around the home. I made this one from a dollar store willow wreath and some leftover yarn.

I wrapped the individual willow branches in yarn and tied on a few bells.

I used a 10-inch wreath.

For this project you will need: a willow wreath (I got mine at Dollar Tree), jingle bells (I also got mine from Dollar Tree) a blunt tapestry needle (craft stores) and leftover yarn.

A blunt tapestry needle is best for this project — it is large and the end is blunt, which is best for pulling in-between the willow branches.

Start out by threading your tapestry needle with yarn and tying the end of the yarn onto a willow branch.

Using the needle, wrap the branch with yarn. Tie to the end to secure.

Add on different colors and tie on jingle bells.

I chose to left some of the willow showing.
