This simple festive wreath brings a luxurious Christmas feel to any door. Created in traditional festive colours this wreath is created from pompoms, wrapped polystyrene craft balls and openwork cage balls. This wonderfully creative wreath has been made from a variety of Rowan yarn; Cocoon, Lima, Pure Linen to name but a few. However, this stash-busting project would be great to use up any leftover Rowan yarn, so have fun experimenting.
