My Knitting Ball Wreath Gift!

Ok my dearest friend in the whole world was having a birthday. She is a very practical lady like I am & frugally minded. She loves yarn so very very much. She has more yarn than anyone I know. She loves to craft & knit and make beautiful & useful things. But she has everything she needs for crafting. So I had no idea what to get her for her birthday. So I really had to think. Then it came to me to make a whimsical knitting wreath to celebrate her passion. So I already had a straw wreath I had gotten on sale for a  dollar a while back I just had not used yet. I took one of my husbands old stained up shirts and ripped it up in strips and covered the wreath. Then I went to my small stash of yarn. I already had some small balls of yarn that she herself had given me, olds scraps she had no need for. So I used those and my teen girl and I sat and rolled more balls out of my yarn. We chose to use lots of different colors because she is a very colorful lady herself! I used some scrap cloth I had in my sewing box to make a floppy bow. I added knitting needles to give it that final touch. Hot glue was perfect to mount everything! The yarn scraps got upcycled well I think. She has since already received her gift from us and she loved her new gift! I was so happy!

I hope this inspires you to think outside of the box! Making gifts from the heart mean so much more.Also it is so rewarding knowing not a lot of money was used and I was able to use what I already had on hand keeping things frugal.
