DIY Finger knit Chickadee Wreath

I made this finger knit chickadee wreath for my friend Jeanette of Snazzy Little Things for the Secret Santa Blog tour.  I actually made her some wood slice ornaments in addition to this wreath.

Finger Knitted Wreath

I started out finger knitting some ivory yarn.  If you don’t know how to finger knit, it is extremely easy.  I like doing this while watching tv at night.  I found a video tutorial on Youtube to learn how to do this.

Once I had my knitting done I wrapped the yarn around the lower 3/4’s of the wreath, leaving the top area uncovered.

The next step is to cut out your leaves, I used felt and some wool ribbon I had on hand to make the leaves.  Once those were cut I hot glued them on the top 1/4 of the wreath.

Using a chalk marker I wrote Merry Christmas on the chalk tag and hot glued the chickadee, sprays of berries, a few leaves and the tag to the bottom of the wreath.  I also used some wire to keep the bird on.

I hot glued some white Styrofoam berries sporadically around the wreath and using the wire I attached the bow.

This wreath was so easy to make.  I need to come up with some other projects using the finger knitted yarn!

The other gift that I gave Jeanette for the Secret Santa Tour are these chalkboard wood slice ornaments!

    Beautiful! However… I have decided that finger knitting is not for me. Give me a round knitting thingy any day! Wonder where mine is? Because this wreath is beautiful! It needs to be made!
