I love everything nautical. From nautical home decor to nautical birthday party decor! When I was asked to style a Nautical Birthday I was over the moon. I immediately knew that I want to focus on blue and white to create the ideal nautical theme. I found a nautical wreath online when I saw this one I knew I had to make it. I was in love so much so that I asked my husband to go back to Michael’s to get new supplies at 8pm the night before I left to go to Sarasota for the big birthday party. It was my first time working with yarn. Thank you to Chelsea's blog: Making Home Base for a great tutorial.
Supplies you will need:
- Wreath form or a dollar store pool noodle
- Navy and white yarn
- Sisal rope
- Glue gun
- Ribbon and burlap for embellishment - optional
Measure and mark up the wreath into 4 sections. Since I was at my brother’s house and did not have my craft box I used a piece of yard and eye balled it.
When I first started I used tape to hold the yarn in place. I eyeballed how much yard I would need instead of using the entire ball of yarn. Don’t worry if you under estimate it. You can easily add more and you will not notice where you added it. Then start wrapping it. I wrapped it four or five times and then would pull it tight and put each strand into place.
Alternate the colors so you have white, blue, white, and blue.
Add the accent rope. This is the only part I glue. I used a hot glue gun to hold it in place.
Hang them, step back and enjoy!!!
Do you have a favorite craft with yarn? I would love to know about it. Looking for my next project.
