"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

Spark-a-Doodle Wreath

Here are the craft instructions for a great project from Red Heart Yarn.  This Spark-a-Doodle Wreath will make a wonderful addition to any household this year...best of all, you don't need to know how to knit or crochet!  This simple yarn craft can be done by anyone, and this wreath is a great addition to your holiday decor.  You could even add a "Merry Christmas" sign to make it even more festive.  This fun Spark-a-Doodle yarn can be found in several craft stores around the holiday season.

Materials:

  • 2 balls Red Heart “Spark-A-Doodle” Yarn in Shamrock (A)
  • 1 ball Red Heart “Spark-A-Doodle” Yarn in Reddy (B)
  • 12” Styrofoam® wreath form
  • Straight pins

 

Instructions:

  1. Cut a length of A that is 10 yards long (to ease in wrapping).
     
  2. Attach the first pompom to the wreath with a straight pin.
     
  3. Then wrap the yarn around wreath, pinning pompoms as necessary to cover strands creating a solid covering.
     
  4. Pin end of yarn to wreath. Continue in this manner until the entire wreath is covered.
     
  5. Cut a length of B. Attach to wreath with pin.
     
  6. Wrap tightly around wreath to mimic berries, using pompoms from A to cover the strands. Pin end to wreath.

Just so people understand, the pompoms are not made, they are part of the yarn. I call it lumpy yarn. If you pull it tightly, it will sink in between the strands of green, just allow a bit of the red to peek thru here and there and it will look like pompoms.

Has anyone made this wreath? I am wondering if the pompoms are in addition to wrapping the yarn around the frame. I think this idea could be adapted to a custome donut shaped pillow form and would make a lovely comfy sofa pillow for the holidays! Cover with chenille yarn sor extra comfy goodness! Thanks for sharing a pretty creative idea!

Isn't this a cute idea? How would you better "personalize" this wreath?
