The Anthropologie Knock-Off Wreath

wreathtutorial15

I bet you’ve seen the Anthropologie knock-off wreath that has been floating around on Pinterest forever.  It retails for $298. Say what Willis? Yeah, there’s no money like that for wreaths in our budget!

I know some of you are thinking you’re not the DIY types, but I promise that this is a project you can pull off. I took pictures of every single step to make it that much easier to follow.  Let me know if you have questions! And for the love of all things DIY, please tell me if you make one!

wreathtutorial1

The supplies you’ll need are::

4 bundles of Yarn {color of your choice} *Make sure you get the biggest loop possible…the thicker the better!*

1 Straw Wreath {Keep the plastic on it, so the straw won’t go everywhere!}

Stick Pins or Hot Glue Gun {your preference..I used pins because the hot glue gun is my enemy.}

Ribbon of your choice

Scissors

You wrap the yarn around your four fingers 40 times. I’ve seen other tutorials that used a piece of cardboard to wrap their yarn around for the bundle, but that would have required another step. I like things as simple as possible.

It should look similar to this, when you’ve finished wrapping it.

wreathtutorial4

Gently slip it off your fingers, and cut another piece of yarn about 8-10 inches long.

wreathtutorial5

Lay the bundle of yarn on top of the extra piece of yarn, just like you see in the picture.

It should look like this when you’ve finished tying the string around it.

You’ll want to take your scissors and insert them into one side of the bundle and make the cut. Then, you’ll want to do the same thing to the other side of the bundle. I held the bundle in my hand and cut each side, but I laid it on the table just to show you what it is supposed to look like.

This is what your yarn puff will look like, after you’ve cut the tied up bundle. Somebody tell me what it’s called. Is it seriously a yarn puff? I can’t think of what else it could be called! Anywho, See those two long strings hanging on either side? You’ll want to cut those to match the rest of the pieces.

wreathtutorial12

I started pinning my puffs down all the way around the top of my straw wreath. It took about 18 puffs to go around it.

wreathtutorial13

Then, I pinned more puffs around the interior of the wreath. It took about 14 to go all the way around. After I finished the interior, I pinned all the puffs to the exterior of the wreath. It took about 18-20 to make complete the exterior.

Are you ready to see the finished project?
I’m feeling dramatic, like I need a drum roll.

She turned out great, didn’t she?! I adore her. It almost makes me want to pull my Christmas stuff out of the attic and deck the halls. almost. I promise I won’t.

This is just one of several DIY projects that I’m wanting to finish before Christmas! I got a head start on this one because the Country Living Fair is NEXT weekend, and I needed a wreath to put up with our Christmas signs that we’re taking!

Ps. One last thing…cause I know you’re dying to know how much I invested in this here wreath, aren’t you?! The yarn was on sale for $4.99 per bundle, and the straw wreath was purchased with a 40% coupon at $3.59.
Total spent:: $25 + tax. not bad. not bad at all.

Pss. Today I accomplished posting my post with pictures on this new site…without losing my mind.  In my next post, I’m going to figure out how to resize my pictures, so they aren’t so huge that you can hardly see them.  The end.

michele fry - Love Love Love!!! Good job on the tutoria, Marthat would be proud! I am heading out to make one this weekend, thinking something with charcoal grey for the winter months on my door!

Kristi - Yarn puffs, or pom poms! Super cute wreath!

Yes. Pom Poms sound right!

Megan - So very creative you are…I love it combined with your sign. I always think of you when I see mercury glass.
I am loving the new site – so fun!

Barbara - Love it the whole thing!

Nicole B - Wow! I have seen multiple tutorials online for this knock off wreath, and I have to say I think yours looks the best! Thanks for the step by step! :)

Deidre - I LOVE it! I think I could actually pull this off. We made a ton of pom poms (that’s what we call them :) last year when my girls made bookmarks to sell. I love the puffy white yarn. So, so pretty!

Lori H - Thanks, Tara! I am crafting with my crafty friend this weekend – she usually ends up doing the hard stuff and I “assist” (ha! I am lame). So I may try to make this wreath. I can use the straw wreath form that I have had in my garage since I planned to make a book-page wreath! :)

Beth - i love this and the fact that you broke it down for us non-crafters. my favorite part is that I can see myself doing this with my 2 girls as girls craft night -wihout the torture of hot glue!

Andrea - I love this….I’m going to try it!!! Stay tuned!

Lemonade Makin' Mama - Well you know I love it… great minds girly… great minds. :)

Jackie - I started making mine last night!! I just love it!! You can borrow mine if you’d like two for your booth. Getting so excited for you…! :)

Kristin - Very cute, very fun! I might make one for Halloween! Pom Poms is probably the correct “name”, but back when I was a kid (40ish years ago…) we made these and called them “warm fuzzies”. I think they went along with a book – something about giving people “warm fuzzies” (compliments, praise, or other affectionate words). Thanks for the inspiration!

Christy - I think I’m going to make this a project to do with my tween. She loves projects, and this would be great to deck her door at Christmas. I wonder what color she’ll choose? Maybe I should get a little wreath for my four year old. She would love this project for about three minutes. ;) Thanks for the inspiration and tutorial. I love your signs. Maybe I can get one for my birthday. The problem is, I can’t decide which one I like best. Good problem to have, right?

Jackie - I am actually going to be coming to the CLF so I will be looking for you. Can’t wait to check out your signs.

amber@grace.to.be - awesome wreath! i’d be wanting to use it as a pillow, it looks that soft!! and the sign is gorgeous~

Lori - I love this wreath! I’m making one right now. But not suite done yet. I used a styrofoam wreath that I had and wrapped it with the yard. The puffs I tied on with the extra string instead of pinning them. But same just a little different twist .
We are so smart aren’t we! ;)

Spencer - I can’t believe how timely this is… I just bought about 6 skeins of big, fluffy ivory yarn at the Goodwill Pound Store… Under a dollar. Several months ago I bought the Clover pom pom maker and whipped up quite a few of those little cuties… nope, no plan for those, but I hated to stop because they were so much fun to make. Now all I need is the wreath and some time… Can hardly wait. Thanks so much for sharing.

Leslie - Thank you so much for sharing your story! I cannot wait to make my own!!
