Snowflake Catcher Wreath



Thank you to the Evanston History Center for inviting me to participate in their annual wreath competition for the Charles Gates Dawes house. If you live in the area you can check it out on Sunday, December 4 from 1pm-4pm, Evanston History Center, 225 Greenwood Street (the wreaths will be auctioned off). For my entry I created what I call a “Snowflake Catcher Wreath”…

A crocheted doily is stitched into the center of a 24-inch grapevine wreath that is wrapped in yarn and studded with small jingle bells and pine cones.

 


I started by wrapping the wreath in yarns of different colors. To some of the strands of yarn, I tied on small jingle bells.

I used a tapestry needle and yarn to stitch the doily into the center of the wreath and added pinecones with a hot glue gun.

For this project you will need: a grapevine wreath, crocheted doily, yarn, jingle bells, a tapestry needle and a glue gun — all available at crafts stores.
