Farmhouse Style Chunky Yarn Wreaths for Spring

Can you believe that spring is only two weeks away?! This year is just flying by. Today I’m joining some blogger friends for our Sustainable Craft Challenge hosted by my friend Julie over at Sum of Their Stories. Our theme this month was “soft,” so I’m sharing a soft and fluffy spring chunky yarn wreath. I made two, and they’re super easy and plus they’re cute! Let’s get into the tutorial.

I got most of my supplies from Dollar Tree. You can order online, but you have to buy in bulk, which is great if you’re a crafter like I am. If you’d like to make these wreaths alone, I’ve linked Amazon products for your convivence.

Supplies for a spring chunky yarn wreath: styrofoam wreath form, egg shaped wood with a beveled edge, twine, pink ribbon, scissors, hot glue gun, & white chunky yarn.

Wrap the wreath form with chunky yarn.

Since today is our Sustainable Craft Challenge, I decided to reuse wreath forms that I wrapped in chunky yarn and used in the past. I used the base of the wreaths from my farmhouse style Valentine’s wreaths. If you need a full tutorial for wrapping them, head over and check out that tutorial where I give you instruction and a video tutorial.

Stain or paint the wood egg or bunny.

I used Rust-oleum weathered gray stain to paint a Dollar Tree egg and bunny. You could paint them to coordinate with the chunky yarn on your wreath if you prefer.

Once it dries, dry brush white chalk paint on the high places and a bit across the front.

Embellish the wood pieces.

I used twine, ribbon, and faux lamb’s ear leaves to dress up my bunny and egg.

Make a small bow with satin ribbon. I used a 1/2″ satin ribbon. I covered the wire I used to secure the bow with twine.

Since I was making two chunky yarn wreaths, I used both a bunny and an egg. I wrapped the middle of the egg with twine.

Next, glue lamb’s ear leaves and the little bow to the wood. The bow isn’t yet glued down in the first photo.

Make a bow for the wreath.

We’re almost there! Use a 1.5″ to 2.5″ ribbon to make a bow. I made a four loop wreath bow. You can get the full tutorial in the video, but here are some still photos of the process.

Assemble the spring wreath.

Finally, put all of the pieces of your chunky yarn wreath together.

I hot glued the wood pieces to the bottom left side of the spring wreath and the bow to the top center. To make this project super sustainable, you can hot glue floral wire to the back of the wreath and use those to attach the bow and bunny to the wreath form.

Video Tutorial

I left the bow tutorial section (starting at 2:23) in a slower speed for those who want to learn how to make it, step by step. You can slow it down even more using the video controls.

Now hang your adorable spring chunky yarn wreath!

I think these wreaths turned out so cute. They’re now hanging from the sconces in my living room that I always hang my seasonal wreaths on.

    1. Love this, Niki! You can certainly get creative using chunky yarn to make your spring wreaths! I love the way you hung them over your sofa! Looks very unique and charming!

      1. Thank you! Those sconces are home to wreaths of every season. My husband is very tall and he always knocks his head against them, knocking them off. He broke one at Halloween and tried to just put them away like I wouldn’t notice 😂. It couldn’t have been anyone else since our heads come nowhere near them lol. I finally asked where the heck my wreaths were. He said, “Oh, um, I accidentally knocked one down and it cracked. They’re in the top of the coat closet.” 🤦‍♀️

    2. Reusing a wreath over and over to switch it up for a new season is such a good idea. I love these wreaths, they look perfect with the pretty spring cushions on your sofa.

    3. This looks so stylish – it looks like you just bought it from a stylish shop! Great way to add Easter decor without breaking the bank.

      1. Aw, thanks Christine! I had everything I needed to make it on hand, but if someone has yarn, you can make one for about $3.75! Dollar Tree even carries the chenille yarn now (if you luck out and find them in stock lol), so the whole shebang can be made for $5!

      1. Thanks Allyson! I wanted to add buttons with the lamb’s ear, but I couldn’t find any, so ribbon & twine to the rescue!

    4. Niki~ These spring chunky yarn wreaths turned out absolutely adorable. I love crafting with stuff from Dollar Tree and you did such a great job turning the wood bunny and egg into masterpieces with that weathered gray stain and embellishments. Your finished project looks lovely how you have them displayed! Pinned….I can’t wait to make these!

    5. These wreaths are so lovely! I really love the embellishments you added to the bunny and the egg. I also love that your supplies are from the Dollar Tree. I love buying supplies there, too. Pinning!
