Whatever Wednesday: Yarn Wreath

I have seen lots of people wrap things with twine and string. I have a ton of yarn, so I thought that I would give it a try. I just took a floral wreath that I got from the dollar store and started wrapping. It was fun. My two younger boys even helped. I would wrap and they would put the yarn through the hole. My one year old loved it so much he started putting other things in the hole, the remote, toothbrush and lots more :). I decided to do green so I can use for St. Patrick's Day and the flowers so it can be for spring also. For the first time in my adult life, I have a wreath on my front door :).

I'm linking this post to these parties

Using what you have on hand - always a brilliant plan.
