Wrapping the Wreath:

Weave in ends on the back of the wreath.

Fold the hanger in half, wrap around the top of the wreath and pull one end of the hanger through the other end to secure. Pull the remaining loop to the back of the wreath.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

As an art teacher I probably think a lot different than most people. I am always trying to incorporate color in the classroom in any form that can be used at a teachable moment. I plan to make this as Roy G. Biv and hang it as a teaching aid. The wreath offers decoration and at the same time a learning tool. Thanks for sharing this project.

For the sewer, does this look like spools of thread? That is what I saw when I first looked at this wreath. You can not get much easier than this project. You can get it accomplished in little to no time and have a great looking wreath to hang on your door. Saving this for a project with my ladies group.

Now this is the kind of DIY craft that is family friendly and scout or youth group approved! You know the kind that can be finished in one take and not over the course of 24-48 hours where you have to let glue or paint dry. It is also the kind of project that lends itself to your own creativity- you can't make a mistake!

So simple and great colors! It actually looks like a ring of rolls of thread! I think I might do a sewing theme with it and stick some knitting needles through it!

I love it!

Here I go again. Every time I see something like this my mind jumps ahead to how I can redesign it. First of all it's very nice but think of it with red and white for Valentines Day, or Red , white and blue for patriotic days. I can see green, white and orange for Saint Patrick's Day. You can tie the yarn so you could remove it and reuse the colors. I was thinking pastel colors in pink, blue, aqua and yellow for Spring! Oh I am dying to get stArted now!

This is so simple but so cute and striking. What a great spring and summertime door decoration. )

"Happy-Life Preserver Wreath" And I don't see why this counts as "crochet." Just because you crochet a few chains that could just as easily be knit I-cord or kumihimo?

This is an excellent project for younger girl/boy scouts for any appropriate holiday.
