One of my good friends came over with yarn and wreath forms and I supplied the vintage hankies. A vintage hankie wreath!
Beauty was born.
In my humble opinion.
Yarn (one bundle)
About 2 feet of lace (it’s hidden, so you can use leftover yarn or string)
Hankies (or fabric scraps)
Optional – Hot glue (or tape or tacky glue)
1. Wrap the heck out of the wreath with the yarn. But on a good show or have friends over to chat, because this takes forever and is pretty boring.
You can secure the ends with hot glue or just wrap the end in the next layers or tape the end or tacky glue or tie in a knot. Just get that yarn on the wreath. If you have a straw wreath leave the plastic covering on so you don’t have straw sticking out (though that could be cute too).
2. Lay the lace behind the wreath. Layer the hankies and wrap the lace over every 2-ish layers and around the wreath. Hankies should be floppy. Tie off and hide lace ends under hankies. Fluff the hankies as desired.
I put mine up on St Patty’s Day with white hankies then added some Spring colors for Easter… I may add some brights for Summer.
I just took down our Easter decorations, but I’m keeping up the Spring stuff. It isn’t much different, but for some reason this has me perplexed. First world problem. Do you leave up Easter? Or have totally separate stuff for Spring? Or take it all down and go plain till the next holiday? Inquiring minds want to know.
The left picture is Easter the right is Spring. I just took down the Happy Easter sign and Easter eggs, then hung the Hankie Pankie Wreath and switched sides with the burlap wreath.
My favorite is the hankie hoop behind the wreath!
Sigh. Crafts are fun and theraputic.
