This gorgeous finger knitting fall wreath is the newest addition to the Spooky Saturdays series, and it is brought to us by the wonderfully talented Julie over at Julie Measures. Isn’t it just yummy?! Let’s turn the time over to her!
Hi guys! My name is Julie and I love to make things. I’m a craft and food blogger over at Julie Measures where I share DIY projects and recipes. I love to bake (and eat) and my favorite crafts relate to yarn. I knit, crochet, and even do some cross stitch.
I love making wreaths for the holidays and my favorite are yarn wreaths. These start with wire wreath frames, yarn, and then embellishments. For fall I’m making a fall wreath that can easily be upgraded for a spooky Halloween look.
To increase the thickness I often use two strands of yarn held together to do the finger knitting. You will probably need 2 skeins of yarn to make the very long finger knit piece for the wreath to wrap around and cover the entire frame
I did mine in white for the wreath base. It made a nice neutral base for me to add embellishments to. And I can change out the embellishments each season!
To add some color for this fall wreath I criss-crossed some orange yarn over the top. For a fall look I added some fabric leaves. I used three different leaf patterns, and cut half of the leaves out of a leaf print fabric and half out of some duck cloth.
Then I hot glued the leaves together and to the orange yarn on the wreath.
Add a sweet little ‘Welcome’ bunting and it’s perfect for fall!
But, if you want to make it a little ‘spooky’ for Halloween, it’s super easy!I picked up a package of those plastic spiders and simply added a handful of them to my wreath. Then when Halloween is over I can take the spiders back off and keep using my fall wreath right through Thanksgiving.
