Make a fun boho-style chunky yarn wreath for your home this holiday season and leave it out all winter! This simple DIY project costs next to nothing and adds great style to any space.
Wreaths are an excellent way to add style to an otherwise boring spot – like the front of your door or a blank wall in your house.
Even better than the typical floral wreath, a chunky yarn wreath gives a bit of coziness too!

If you’re looking for a simple Christmas or winter project, give this wreath a try.
It’s looks great with just the yarn but is also easy to make seasonal by adding twigs or picks to the leather strap too. 🙂

What is the Boho Style?
The boho trend is described as a free-spirited aesthetic that creates an eclectic style using laid-back organic elements, natural textures and earthy colors.
Some say it draws inspiration from the “hippie” era, but the more common boho style has a touch of chic-ness to it.
People who decorate their home in a boho fashion tend to shy away from traditional styling rules and instead focus on a bold mix of colors, patterns and textures.

How to Make a Loop Yarn Wreath
STEP 1: Cut the yarn strands.
First, take the yarn and cut a piece measuring 21 inches.
Use this piece to measure out 31 more strands of yarn, 32 total strands.
STEP 2: Loop the yarn strands around the hoop.
Next, take a strand of yarn, fold it in half and place the fold under your hoop to where the yarn creates a loop pointing out of the hoop and you have the tails of yarn inside the hoop.
Take the tails of yarn over the hoop and through the loop to secure the yarn to the hoop.
Repeat this step next to this piece of yarn until you have filled up the hoop with all 32 pieces. Your chunky yarn wreath should now look like this:
STEP 3: Knot the yarn strands together.
Now you’re going to take one tail of yarn from one of the knots and one from the knot right next to it.
Tie these two pieces together creating another row of knots.
Do this all the way around the wreath.
Once you have completed the second row of knots, cut any pieces that are extra long.

Then pull the yarn apart along the edges to create the fluffy, frayed look.
STEP 4: Add the leather strap.
Next, measure and cut a piece of leather that is 1″ wide by 7” long.
Place your leather strip in between two of the knots.
Now you will overlap your leather by about half of an inch and put your decorative nail head there in the middle to secure the two ends together.
Lastly, flip over your wreath and tie a small piece of string on the back of the leather so you can hang your new wreath!
Now you have the perfect chunky yarn wreath for both Christmas and/or Winter.
To give it a holiday vibe, simply add in some fir tree trimmings and berries behind the leather.
