I needed a wreath for my front door, but after all the holiday shopping, didn’t have extra cash to spend.

While putting all my Christmas decor away, I stumbled upon old hay wreath in my closet that was just collecting dust.

I glanced over at my wreath I had just removed from my front door and inspiration struck.

Wintertime to me, always means sitting and knitting while sipping pot loads of coffee.

I hurried to get all these decorations put away so I could get right back to my winter-timing.

When I saw that old wreath form, I started rummaged through scraps of yarn to create an easy wreath.

Here’s how I did it.

I chose a neutral color as the base of the wreath.

Next, I tied a knot around the hay wreath form and started wrapping.

I wrapped and wrapped the wreath until it completely covered the hay.  

I like the bumpy, natural look rather than the perfect look I’ve seen in other wreaths.

Next I used a chunkier yarn in a charcoal color that I finger knit a cord.

I talked about finger knitting my garland for my tree this past year.  Here’s a great tutorial I used to learn how to finger knit.

Using this same technique, I finger knitted until I reached my desired length and wrapped that around the wreath.

I only wanted the wreath partially covered, so I tied the ends off and tucked them into the wreath.

Look at all that texture! I love that contrast of color.

Being a novice myself, I wish I could give a knitting cute.  I, myself, just learned how to knit a i-cord, which I learned that the ‘i’ in i-cord stands for idiot because it’s so easy to do!

I knit a long i-cord. After binding off, I took the i-cord and stitched the ends together to form a flower.

I tied the flowers to my wreath and added contrasting buttons to make each flower pop.
