Wrapped Up Wreath Ornaments

Wrap colorful yarn around a circular base to create these adorable Wrapped Up Wreath Ornaments.  Great for hanging on the tree or using to accent a gift package, these handmade X-Mas ornaments are great for both kids and adults.  This project is also great for using up yarn scraps and various embellishments.  You can even use these wreaths to frame small cross stitch patterns, photos, and much more.

Yarn Wrapped Wreath


  • The Original Orange-Handled Scissors™ (8")
  • Round base (small wood frame or Styrofoam)
  • Yarn
  • Tulle
  • Ribbon
  • Embroidery needle
  • Embellishments: jingle bells, buttons, charms, etc.



  1. Take two pieces of yarn, either the same color or different colors and about 4 yards long, and wrap the yarn around the base and tie them in a knot.
  2. Pull the short end of the yarn to the side, and then start wrapping the yarn around the ornament to the same side that had the short end (therefore covering up the short end of yarn).
  3. Continue to wrap the yarn pieces around the base.
  4. When you are finished wrapping the base of the wreath ornament, tie a knot to secure the yarn to the ornament and cut off the excess yarn.
  5. Take one piece of yarn at about 8-12 inches long, and fold it into a loop. Tie a knot about 4 inches from the end of the yarn. Then tie the ends around the ornament. This will make a loop to hang from your Christmas tree.
  6. Tie a bow of yarn around the ornament. Using an embroidery needle, and attach the bells, buttons, or other charms to the bow. Secure all charms to the ornament with a knot.
  7. Hang from your Christmas tree, and sit back and admire your creative work while sipping hot chocolate!
