Tips For Making A Yarn Reindeer Wreath
- You can find the Blanket-EZ yarn at Joann, Walmart, officesupply.com, or get the yarn here online. We love the brown coffee color if you cannot locate the taupe we used!
- To keep the yarn from unraveling on the wreath form, use a spot of hot glue to adhere it to metal. You can also use a zip tie.
- We were able to find the headband at Dollar Tree during the holiday season. If you cannot locate these or want a different color, we found a multi-pack of festive headbands online.

How To Make A Reindeer Yarn Wreath
Each step for this craft is detailed below to make it easy for you. Keep this page open while you are creating your wreath. If you would rather have a printable how-to, scroll down and select the print button.
Take the end of the yarn and tie it around the outer wire from the wreath form.
Wrap the yarn around the entire wreath form. Wrap it tightly and close together around the wreath form so that it gives the wreath a fuller look.
Glue the end of the yarn to keep it in place.
Pull off the top (silver) piece of the ornament and bend the antlers off the headband.
Add hot glue around the top of the red ornament and press it firmly to the wire wreath form. Once the “nose” is secure, move the yarn back to cover around the nose.
Add hot glue to the bottom of the antlers, both on the front and back.
Move the yarn away from the wreath form and add the antlers. Press down for about 30 seconds to make sure it adheres and then move the yarn back to cover around it.
Notes For Making A Yarn Wreath
- When we chose the red ornament for the nose, we had a few different shades of red to choose from. There was matte, shiny and one had a subtle pattern – any of these will work well for the reindeer’s nose.
- We used a 14″ wreath form for this project. If you want to use a larger form, perhaps 16″ or 18″, you may need to purchase an additional skein of yarn to cover the entire wreath form.
