My latest creation in yarn is this adorable yarn balls wreath, made out of the yarn from my yarn stash.
I'm a recovering yarn hoarder, and recently fell in love with creating wreaths using yarn to lessen my stash, as well as make something cute that will actually be used for a part of the year.
The spiders in the wreath are pom-poms and the backing is a foam wreath wrapped in several finger-knitted chains.
My marketing-genius husband came up with the name of the wreath, as I was trying to incorporate many uses for a wreath that could be made out of any color of yarn, for any season or festivity.
This particular wreath is meant to celebrate the season of Halloween, but I could easily have made the balls using shades of Autumn to represent Fall, red, green and white yarn for Christmas or the Holidays, red, pink and white balls for Valentines Day, or shades of green for St. Patrick's Day all mixed with different types of embellishments instead of spiders.
Hopefully you get the gist that this project is intended to be customized for all types of festivities, and to use up that yarn stash that I know I'm not the only one who has such a thing....
Thanks for looking & reading and if you make one similar to this or based on this PLEASE let me know by posting a picture in the comments!

The total time it took to make this project was somewhere between 3 to 4 hours over the course of three days.
