Today I am sharing a Paper Yarn Wreath I made for a friend!
Have you ever used paper yarn? Did you actually tried to crochet something with it? Well, my mum bought me this paper yarn long time ago and I never did anything with it. So, instead of using normal yarn, I decided to try this one.
How to make a Paper Yarn Wreath
First, I wrapped around the polysterene wreath some paper yarn and tied it well at the back. I liked the way it holds nicely and tightly. Then, I crochet a flower with the paper yarn…That was really hard!! I don’t about other people but I found it really difficult to crochet with paper. Every time the hook will go through the loop, I will so scaried that it will rip apart. It was also challenging to get a sense of the shape it will take and calculate the number of chains and loops.
Nevertheless, I managed to make a pretty (I think!) flower! In the middle of it, I cut strips of the paper yarn and glued it with a hot glue gun.
Since my hand was really sore from the paper yarn, I turned to my lovely, soft cotton yarn and made a small flower and a heart! Wow! What a difference 🙂 I attached these on the wreath with glue, too!
Then, I found some pretty, matching ribbons and the wreath was completed!
If you ask me, if I am going to try to crochet with paper yarn again, I will definitely say ‘no’. But, paper yarn can be used on many other projects and I am going to be doing my research for more ideas!
Overall, the result is lovely…don’t you think? I love this color combination and the fact that it is not overloaded. Simplicity is key 🙂
I would love to hear from you, if you ever used paper yarn, your experience and any project ideas!
Till next time 😉
