For the Front Door - Yarn and yoyo fall wreath

The details:


I'm obsessed with yarn wreaths and I'm not afraid to say it.  I think since the moment I first signed on with Pinterest and started seeing them, I've been pinning and dreaming of making my own.  I used to work at a flower shop in college and would make wreaths for clients on occasion (and not always with fresh flowers).  It is such a treat to revisit this craft.  

A couple of months ago I got a wreath form and wrapped it with yarn, and a couple of Studio Calico kits ago, I became obsessed with wood doilies and had to get some more, and the two combined to create a lovely little accent for my front door:









Maya Road doilies and buttons, Divine Twine, an embroidery hoop, and fabrics from Michael Miller and Heather Bailey, I think.  It's close to Thanksgiving and almost time for a more Christmas inspired wreath, but for the next couple of weeks, I plan to enjoy it!
