Fall for You Wreath

Fall Wreath

Self-striping yarn isn’t just for knitting or crochet; it also works in pattern when simply wound around an item!ย  Add a little Fall feel to your home this season with a yarn wrapped wreath striped in autumnal colorway, Earth(ish) from my line, Sheep(ish) Stripes. It’s a quick and easy way to create a sustainable decoration for Thanksgiving and beyond.

Oh, and hey, why not put a pompom on it?

Here’s the scoop on how to make your own, Fall for You Wreath!
