Yarn wreath...inspired by Creative Breathing

I fell in love with Elizabeth's (Creative Breathing) yarn wreath when she posted it here.

Only using supplies that I had on hand (I really miss driving and shopping...I can't wait to dump the crutches/knee scooter) I modified her design slightly.


 I definitely would have used a Styrofoam wreath if I had one available in my stash of supplies. The straw wreath worked well enough, but it was messy until it was covered.





Even Luna enjoyed helping me wrap the wreath with yarn. 
Here's my version.
The toadstools were available last year in the Target $1 bins.
I covered the toadstool caps with a bit of glue and glitter.

Elizabeth is always so good about explaining how she creates things and her felt flower tutorials came in handy.  Be sure to come visit this post on her blog for instructions.  Thank you for the inspiration, Elizabeth.

There's a lot to be said for using what you have, especially when it comes out as sweet as this.

How springy is that pretty wreath? Love the mushrooms. I do agree that E has the most wonderful ideas. Yours came out great!

Miss Luna...its like they smell the yarn coming out. Your wreath turned out beautifully. I missed these toadstools at target probably because they look far better with the glitter you put on them. Well done...are you out of glitter yet? Smiles..Renee

I love your version of Elizabeth's wreath! (She is so creative, isn't she?) I especially loved seeing your little gray assistant. ;-) Cats are sooo helpful.

Oh- That is just darling! I love it, love it, love it!!! I am not usually fond of mushrooms but I adore the ones you are showing here. Wouldn't they be cute in front of a fairy house for the kids? xo Diana
