Hello! In this post, I'm going to show you how to make a wreath with yarn and nautical rope. It's affordable and easy to make.

You can watch the video below or you can continue reading on.




You're going to need

Floral foam wreath that measures about 9 to 10 inches.
Two colors of yarn. I used red and white yarn.
Permanent marker
Hot glue
Scissors
Nautical rope that measures about 9 feet.
Ruler

1. Start by marking where you want your colors of yarn to be and you want to do this by taking your marker and sectioning off six sections of color. You can use a ruler to measure the sections and you can use the line that's already on the foam and use that as a starting point. I made the my sections to be about 4 1/2 inches.

2. When you're done making all of the sections, you can start putting the yarn on the wreath by tying it on into a knot next to one of the marks. Then you can start wrapping the yarn tightly around the foam. You want to keep wrapping until you get to the next mark.

3. Once you get to the next mark, you want to cut the yarn and tie it into a knot onto a piece of yarn that's already been wrapped on the foam.


4. Cut off any extra pieces of yarn.

5. Continue to the next color and after finishing the next color you want to continue the steps 2 - 4 for the other sections.


6. When you're done wrapping the yarn on, you want to get your nautical rope and you want to place the end of the rope on the side and on the middle of the darkest color of yarn that you used so you get an idea of how you want it to look.

7. Glue the end of the rope on and you may need to hold it there for a few seconds so it stays.


8. Go to the next same identical color and place the rope on it so you get an idea of how you want it to look and make sure you make a loop over the color you're not glueing on.

You can also measure the space in between the foam and the rope. The space in between my rope and the foam measured around 2 to 2 1/2 inches.

9. Once you're done making the loop, you want to glue the rope on.


10. Repeat the same steps for the next identical color of yarn.


11. Once you get to where you started, you want to get an idea of where you need to cut the rope and then you want to cut the rope.

12. Glue the end of the rope next to the place where you started.

13. If you need to you can go back and glue the rope down a little more so it can stay in place better and make sure you keep the rope in the center on that section of yarn.


14. Take the same color of yarn as the yarn that the rope is attached to and you want to tie it into a knot and start wrapping the yarn around where the rope was glued down.

You want to keep wrapping until you like how it looks and make sure it looks okay on the front. I measured mine to be about 2 inches.

15. When you're done wrapping the yarn, you want to tie the yarn into a knot. You can either tie the yarn onto a piece of yarn that's been already wrapped on or you can use the piece you tied the yarn on with.

16. Continue the same steps for the other two sections.

17. Cut off any extra yarn and you're all done.


I hanged it up is by using one of the rope loops but you can hang it up in anyway you would like.

That's how you make this nautical wreath. I love how it turned out.

What do you think about this wreath?
