Candy Cane Yarn Wreath


This is my latest craft thanks to Pinterest. I found it when I was looking for wreath ideas. The link was actual to someone's Etsy site where they had this wreath for sale. I thought it was priced a bit much at $39, considering that it cost me about $9 to make, and I have enough silvery sprig and yarn left over to make another if I bought another wreath. It was pretty time consuming, because wrapping with yarn takes a lot of time and patience. I pretty much just pulled up some shows I like on Netflix and listen/watched and wrapped. I think I'm going to add some more spray to it, and hot glue it down, but I really rather like the finished result. Maybe I should get into Etsy someday, because when I went to link up to the original wreath, I saw that it had sold. :)

Yeah, with something like that, you're not paying the cost of the materials, you're paying the cost of someone's time. Actually, with any craft. We tend to forget and/or discount the amount of time that someone puts into something hand crafted, mainly because we can get something similar, that a machine made, for cheaper. But then we complain about how they "just don't make them like they used to". Well, they do. We just don't want to PAY for it, so hardly anyone makes them anymore.

Anyway...the wreath is beautiful! That's yarn? It looks in the picture like pieces of fabric.
