When I saw a pin for these miniature Christmas wreaths made from old shower curtain rings I got really excited since I had just found a set we bought and then wound up not using when the curtain we bought came with coordinating rings. The original tutorial came from Smile Like You Mean It. I decided to make a few to start preparing for Christmas.
I didn't worry about gluing the yarn at first. I tied the yarn under itself and kept wrapping until it stayed in place. I guesstimated the length of yarn I would need to cover the entire ring and was only a bit short. I was able to hide the yarn change by keeping the wrapping tight.
Once the wreath was fully covered I tied down the yarn end but didn't glue anything yet.
I chose to go with some gold ribbon and wrapped it around in the same direction as the yarn.
Once the wreath was fully covered things still looked a bit messy at the top. This is where extra yarn was used in layers to even out the connector for the ring and where I tied the ribbon.
I used the trusty old hot glue gun to secure the ends of the yarn, ribbon and add the stars.
I had already glued my first star when I realized I wanted to add a hanging ribbon.
I added all three stars in a group.
My final mini wreath all set for Christmas! I'm going to make all the leftover rings into these!
