fall yarn wreath.

i've seen this project on pinterest and countless craft blogs the last couple weeks. i have been dying to try it out for myself and last week i remembered i hadn't gotten anything for my mom for her birthday at the beginning of the month. it was the perfect opportunity to finally do this project and not feel guilty about spending a little money since it wouldn't be for me! 

what you'll need:
- styrofoam wreath form
- bundle of yarn
- hot glue gun
- pinning needles

for the embellishments i used:
- felt in various colors {who knew they made felt in houndstooth print!}
- buttons
- needle & thread
- bead branch cluster {on clearance at hobby lobby}

and introducing my backdrop, which you may have seen before in these pictures.
all you need is a piece of cardboard and pretty wrapping paper...the perfect backdrop for all those crafts you do!
