How to Make a Loop Yarn Wreath

This loop yarn wreath is so easy to make! You can use whatever embellishments you want to decorate the wreath for any holiday or season.

It would look just as lovely alone as a cozy and fluffy yarn wreath.

If you are not familiar with loop yarn, I’ll share some frequently asked questions and tips for working with it at the end of this post.

So be sure to read to the end.

There will also be a printable card to make this project even easier for you!

No one said pumpkins had to be orange! 🙂 I found the most beautiful Dollar Tree velvet pumpkins in soft shades of pink and silver.

I knew they would be perfect against the white yarn.

You can follow this same step-by-step tutorial and change out the pumpkins with classic autumn shades of oranges, gold, and burgundy if you like.

If you haven’t checked out the Dollar Tree fall and Halloween crafts yet, you are in for a surprise!

They really knocked it out of the park with their seasonal products this year.

This would be a fun fall wreath to make with friends at a craft night.

Because most of the supplies come from the dollar store, it’s a very budget-friendly craft.

What Size is the Loop Yarn Wreath?

Because I wanted this fall wreath to be in a larger size, I decided to use a pool noodle for my wreath form.

Large forms can be expensive, so this is one of my easy tips for saving a few bucks.

Just bend the noodle in half and use duct tape or even packing tape to secure it.

It will give you an overall wreath size of about 20″. For $1.25 that’s a bargain!

Supplies

You only need a few inexpensive supplies for this simple DIY wreath:

  • Duct Tape or Packing Tape
  • Pool Noodle – this is a great way to save money on a wreath form!
  • Loop Yarn – I used 2 skeins. Check out the craft store and buy when it is on sale. I bought 2 for under $10!
  • Floral Wire
  • Wire Cutters – I just ordered these!
  • Cordless Hot Glue Gun – this is my favorite one!
  • Decorations – you can decorate the wreath however you like. Mine is decorated for the fall and autumn season using dollar store supplies shown below:
  • Fall Cotton Stems – from Dollar Tree
  • Pumpkin Picks – love these pumpkin picks – and they have several colors at Dollar Tree.
  • Velvet Pumpkins – I used 6

Step 1. Secure the pool noodle

Bend the pool noodle in half. Use strong tape like packing tape, or duct tape to secure it.

You really only need a couple of pieces. I may have gone a little heavy on the tape!

Step 2. Secure the loop yarn

Unwrap your skein of yarn and hot glue the end to your wreath form. The great thing about this project is you don’t need much glue at all.

Simply place a dab of hot glue at the beginning and the end. You can’t get much easier than that!

Step 3. Continue to wrap the yarn

Continue to wrap the loop yarn around the wreath. It helps to keep it together in a pile and just wind it around and around until the wreath is covered.

To keep any of the pink from showing, push the yarn together so it is fairly snug.

You can also wrap the wreath with white scrap fabric first as I show in this vintage wreath tutorial.

Step 4. Cover bottom of a pool noodle

To save on yarn and keep the velvet pumpkins more secure, I wrapped the wreath with a piece of burlap for the bottom 1/4 section.

You can use any fabric that you like as it won’t show. You can hot glue this directly to the pool noodle.

Step 5. Add your wreath decorations

Once the wreath is completely covered you can add your decorations. The floral wire makes it so easy to secure larger pumpkins.

Snip a piece about 6″ or so and hot glue the bottom into the pumpkin.

Use scissors to snip a small piece of the burlap fabric so you can push the floral wire into the wreath base.

Add a dab of glue to the bottom of the pumpkin as well and hold it to the wreath base for a minute or so until it is secure.

Step 6. Continue adding pumpkins

Repeat this process until you are happy with the placement of the pumpkins. I used 6 velvet pumpkins in total.

Add more hot glue if necessary. The silver velvet pumpkins are so pretty!

Step 7. Add smaller embellishments

To fill in the smaller areas around the velvet pumpkins I used mini pumpkin stems including a pink sweater pumpkin and white pumpkins. So cute!

I’m so in love with how cozy and fluffy this wreath looks. It’s even prettier in person.

If you are a fan of traditional fall colors, you can absolutely use those instead.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is loop yarn?

If you haven’t worked with loop yarn yet, it is a type of yarn that already has loops pre-sewn into it.

This makes it incredibly easy to use in hand-knit crafts. It is also great to use in finger knitting.

Because of how fluffy and textured the yarn is, it makes it a great choice for creating wreaths.

Simply wrap the yarn around your wreath base and in no time at all, you will have a gorgeous fluffy wreath that will look like it took hours to create!

Where can you find loop yarn?

Loop yarn is sold at just about all craft stores in a couple of different sizes.

I’ve also seen it at Walmart and you can always order it on Amazon.

Lion Brand and Red Heart are 2 popular brands.

To make this size yarn wreath, you will need two skeins of loop yarn.
