Hi Patty,
This is adorable, I love it! I may have to make one or two for spring. A few painted eggs and bunny sitting in the middle will be great for Easter!
Thanks for the inspiration.


I LOVE this!!! Where did you get the pink pins? I always have trouble finding them!

I agree with Becky Green...can't find the lime green fun fur anywhere...probably the only color I don't already have. Any suggestions other than ordering it through Lion?

I just ran into your blog and love this wreath. Very cute and very inventive. My daughter and I are planning a trip to Joann's tomorrow afternoon and I'm going to get the supplies and make one of these for our home. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful idea and project.

reFresh reStyle

I love this, saw it on another blog and said I want to recreate that! Until, I saw all that wrapping! It's so cute, maybe one day!!!



This is so cute! Love it. Going to make one today!!!


I love this!~


I love this wreath! I started making one, but ran out of yarn (I got a 12" form). Got more yarn, and while I was working late, my 13-yo daughter completed the wreath. I was proud of her, but kind of disappointed, because I wanted to make it! I'll just have to make another. Thank you so much for posting this.


I made this for a friend for her April birthday, and she loved it! I had to adapt it a bit (I wanted to make it with no pins because she has 3 cute little girls), so I used a ribbon of daisies and wrapped it lightly around the "furry" wreath, then sewed the ends of the ribbon together. It came out so cute! I posted it in my Facebook photos.

Thanks so much for this tutorial.

Amy O'H.

*Love* this wreath! How fun!

Terri rudd

Loved this wreath.I made mine with a green boa instead of the yarn looks just as nice as yours thanks.


I've pinned this all over the place :) and was inspired to create two of my own. I now want to do a royal blue cookie monster one, a black googly eyes one for halloween, etc. Help, you've created an (awesome) monster!!! xoxo


I can hardly wait to go to the craft store tomoorow. cute, cute, cute


I absolutely love this! I am definitely going to make this! Thank you!

Dessa Rose

How much yarn does a 12" wreath take?


ok Patty - thanks for your email - I did a version of yours (LOVE LOVE LOVE it - it's hanging on the front door now and getting sooo many compliments!!!) plus a yellow one, and I am going to make a black & orange one for halloween and a royal blue one with googly eyes for cookie monster. http://inspiredbysaturday.com/Blog/tabid/56/entryid/19/Spring-Wreaths.aspx

Love that you shared this awesome idea with us :)

Kim Folstrom

What a super fun wreath. I love it!!! Can't wait to one for myself, and Karen's idea of adding easter eggs and a bunny for Easter is super. Thank you so much for this project!!!


Love it - would you consider selling one? How much would you ask? My email: [email protected]


I found this project on pinterest and just tried it out yesterday. It only cost me about $15, and it took me less than an hour! (The most time consuming part was wrapping the yarn around). I loved the result SO much that I'm making a second one as a gift to my grandmother.

I did a small variation on yours, in that instead of daisies, I purchased silk flowers in pink and white, and stuck those in instead! I love how the wreath turned out- thank you SO much for a great tutorial!


Notice a theme?? everyone says they HAVE TO DO IT RIGHT NOW just like I did... LOL

now THAT is a powerfully awesome project!!! xoxo


I saw this on Pinterest and just had to have one of my own. I wrote about it on my blog here: http://tomatoesforapples.blogspot.com/2012/02/springtime-wreath.html. Thank you so much for posting the tutorial. It added a much needed touch of spring to my front door.


This is adorable! I bought all the materials today and made it tonight, I love it!! I may add a bunny in the middle for Easter. Your instructions were perfect, thank you so much.


although this is super cute, the picture makes it appear larger than it actually is, if you use the 8" foam wreath. In fact, when we were finished with it today, we put it on our front door, and it looks like a little green furry lifesaver candy stuck to the door, instead of a big, beautiful wreath. I think at this size, it would be much better as an indoor wall decoration, or as a centerpiece at a spring tea. To make it as a door wreath, I think you would need to use the 12" foam wreath, and increase your skeins of yarn to at least 2--I used 1/2 the skein on my 8" one, and wrapped it several times. Otherwise, this is very cute, and a great project to do with your kids!


I am making the wreath right now. Just jumped onto my computer to reread your directions. I couldn't find the green eyelash yarn that you used, but I did find some Martha Stewart glitter eyelash. So mine will be very sparkly. I wanted to check out if you glued the daisies on or just pined them. I am giving mine to a friend with little ones and I was thinking of gluing instead of using the pins. Thank you for posting this project.


Mel McCarthy

Such a gorgeous wreath and clever clever idea, Patty!

Lourrie Livingston

I am located in Alabama and our Dollar Tree carries this type of fun fur for only $1.00 each, everytime I find it there I buy as much as I can, thanks for the idea to finally use some of it

Beth Bricker

I love it. I plan to make one for the door of my vintage trailer.


This wreath is beautiful! I have made three and blogged about them today. Thank you for sharing this!


Karen Surette

I,m an activities coordinator for a senior center and can't wait for my seniors to do this awsome project. Just one question, how large are the daisies? I purchased some on the internet but I believe they are 1/2 inch and I think yours are 1" could you please let me know.

Thanks, Karen


I just made this and it turned out great! Thanks for the idea!


How much yarn did this take?

Michele Nugent

Too cute! Goin to HAVE to make this!!!!

Mrs. B.

Just saved this as "A DARLING Spring Wreath to make"---and asap! Thank you so much!!! :-)


This is so cute!! I love it! I made one last night that is similar. My "grass" is pink and I'm going to Michael's today to get some larger silk daises to put on it. Thanks for the idea!!

Lizy B

This is fabulous!! Can't wait to try it! I even have micheals coupons in my hot little hand!

Tamara Ahrens

Thanks for the inspiration! After seeing some comments about how small the 8" wreath would be, I picked up a 12" foam wreath. It took about 1 and 1/3 skeins of the Fun Fur. I also could not locate the Lime color (without having to special order it and wait 2+ weeks), so I just made mine with the varigated Fun Fur in Spring colors. Doesn't have the green grass effect, but looks just as cute. I also opted for small silk daisies instead of the trim as the trim I found was too expensive for this project. Again, thanks for the inspiration! I needed something spring-y to hang on my front door!

Sue McRae

Such a charming wreath, love it!

Sarah Allcock

That is SO CUTE! I'm going to have to run to Joann's and get those supplies. Thanks for sharing.

Heidi Nobmann

I just made this "boy-friendly" and 12" wreath (I have 3 boys and one on the way). Thanks so much for such a fun and happy front door!


Adorable!!! Thanks for the share! xo <3
