Veterans Military Yarn Wreath- Finished Friday

In the past week I’ve been working on several yarn wreaths again. Two are almost completed, but this one is all finished!

My husband serves in the military, so I like to make a lot of military and USA related items. While he is still active duty, I wanted to make this to honor all our brave veterans out there.

Military Yarn Wreaths- Work in Progress Wednesday

I have a bad habit of starting projects and then setting them aside for various reasons. Sometimes I feel like they are taking too long so I need a break. Other times, a new and exciting idea comes along that I just can’t wait to get started on. Still other times, I simply set it down and something gets put on top of it… You know, out of sight, out of mind? Well that’s what happened with today’s work-in-progress. I started this project back around Christmas time, and took it to PA when we went for a few days around New Year’s. Came home with it, bought my letters, painted them, then moved the painted letters off the table for dinner. Into a bag with the flowers they went, which in time ended up in a tote box along with the already yarn-wrapped wreaths forms.

Then I forgot about them. I finally came across a picture on my phone of them as a work in progress and realized they were never finished. So I dug them out this morning and they will be completed today. They only need to be glued together. So pictured here, are 2 yarn wreaths- one for Army, the other for Air Force.

I plan to do the other branches soon if I have positive feedback on these two. I will be listing them on Etsy, so I will try to update this post with the link soon, as well as update my store page here on the blog.

UPDATE: I did indeed finish them and they are now available in my Etsy shop Stitches of Light

I am excited to be linking up with Work in Progress Wednesday over at Tami’s Amis and Other Creations
