Instructions:

Wreath

  1. With B, tie a knot around the wreath where the Styrofoam® joins to prevent a bump. Wrap the yarn around the wreath making sure there are no gaps creating a solid covering. Every few wraps tighten and twist the yarn with your hand on the wreath. Continue in this manner until the entire wreath is covered.
