Black and White Buffalo Check Christmas Wreath Tutorial
I created this fun video tutorial if you like this kind of style! If you are more of a step-by-step photo kind of person, scroll down a bit and keep reading.
Firstly, decide what color of yarn you are going to start with. I started with white.
Start wrapping your yarn around your foam wreath form. I decided to make 2 inches stripes and that got me around 10-12 loops.
Once your white stripe is done, don’t cut it, just leave it sideband start wrapping with the black yarn slightly overlapping the white yarn string.
Then swap and leave aside the black yarn and wrap with the white until you finish the whole wreath.
Cut your yarn leaving a couple of inches to make a knot. Cut excess.
When you are done you should have something like this:
Now get your greenery stems and bend them to make a semi-circle to match your wreath form.
Place them in opposite directions meeting in the center of what you decide will be the bottom of your wreath. Make sure you hide the metallic stems among the leaves.
Secure with a string of yarn the same color that the center is on your wreath making a knot on the back. In my case it was white.
Then secure on both ends of the greenery stems the same way as above.
Then insert your berry stems among the greenery leaves and secure if necessary with twine or yarn.
Make a cute buffalo check ribbon bow. In the video, you can see how I made mine.
Glue 2 strings of yarn on the back of the bow and place it in the middle of the greenery stems and secure on the back each string separate.
Finally, Use your red ribbon for your hanger.
There you go!!!
I absolutely LOVE how it turned out. So simple, so easy and yet SOOO pretty!!!
I decided to place my gorgeous wreath hung on my window frame wall art I recently made for the wall behind the sofa!
How cute does it look?
Once Christmas is over you can take it all down and reuse your supplies for another project or use it partially too.
