Yesterday I decided I was going to give the old “yarn and foam” wreath project a try. I have seen yarn wrapped wreaths all over blog land and honestly, I thought I would never do one. I think they are beautiful but the time involved I thought was outrageous.  Well, I was right! ha. I purchased a round foam wreath for a little over $5 from Michael’s and some pink yarn. It actually only took about an hour to wrap the entire wreath with yarn so it wasn’t that bad. The hydrangeas are left over from this summer compliments of the stylish at This Old House. I used craft wire to adhere them to the bottom of the wreath. Viola, a pink and blue yarn hydrangea wreath for fall.

I decided to hang it on my book case near our   diy barn closet doors that we made last year. While the stylist was here last month from This Old House, I asked her what a few quick tips were for decorating a book case or shelf. I tried to use her suggestions for this project and after about 10 minutes of searching my house, this is what I came up with. Not professional by any means but good enough for me.   I stacked the baskets, added some books and moss as well as mixed in some of my grams blue willow china and mercury gourds I had left over from last year. Total cost was just under $8, which was the cost of the foam wreath and yarn.
