I couldn’t be more excited to be crafting away with Vickie Howell’s new line of yarns for Caron! Vickie has been a friend and D.I.Y Network alumni of mine for many years. We have hosted shows together, contributed to CHA shindigs and we share the love of craft.
When Vickie showed me the swatches for her new yarns – I about flipped a wig. They are all my favorite colors to work with. Deep, rich and a little off the color box! Unique and classic at the same time. I knew I wanted to make a yarn wreath with them. I have made yarn wreaths for years and I thought the colors would look awesome with my new orange front door.
The yarns are just as tender to the touch as they are the eyes. They are 70% Acrylic and 30% wool making them Sheep(ish). Each ball is 3oz/85g and 167 yds/153 m. Machine wash cold, Dry flat.
Create the nest shape by placing the plastic bag ball onto a piece of wax paper or a Hot Glue Gun Helper Mat. Randomly wind the yarn around the plastic bag ball. Allow to dry for 24 hours. Remove from the plastic ball when dry.
Audition twigs onto the wreath until you are happy with the design.
