Crafty Shower: Knitting Wreath

My brother got married last weekend!  So I suppose its about time I blogged about the awesome, craft-themed shower we had for his new wife last month.


Here's a shot of the food table- featuring my knitting/sewing wreath among a lot of delicious food.  This wreath was made possible by my downstairs old lady neighbor, who didn't know I went through her donation pile on the driveway before the van came to pick stuff up.  I took one grapevine wreath and a small vintage blue suitcase.   And I do have some guilt, but a very minor amount.


First I wrapped some wooden spools in blue and green yarn. 

So cute!


Then I used floral wire to attach wooden knitting needles to the wreath. 

Then use some floral wire to grab a strand of yarn and attach to the wreath. 

I also wrapped some yarn around the wreath to give it more color. 



  1. This is ABSOLUTELY, Ridiculously the cutest wreath I've ever seen!!! I am definitely going to need this one day! lol -Jessica
