Yarn Grass Wreath Tutorial

Easy and cute yarn "grass" wreath.  

What you need:
12" green foam wreath
2 skeins Lime colored "Fun Fur" yarn
hot glue gun and sticks
Flower "ribbon" embellishment (as many as you like on your wreath)
Paper, colored pencil, and a toothpick for the "bare feet welcome" sign
About 18" ribbon in the color of your choice to hang your wreath.  

How to make your own Yarn Grass Wreath:  
Hot glue the yarn to the green wreath.  Use a green wreath so if it peeks through, it won't be noticeable.  Wrap and wrap and wrap.  After you wrap a few inches, you can "fluff" it up by rubbing the yarn with your finger tips.  Super easy.  

This is as far as the first skein got on the 12" wreath.  Secure the other end of the yarn to the wreath with hot glue.  Start and end the next skein of yarn with a dot of hot glue again too.  

Wreath covered in the "Fun Fur" yarn.   Then hot glue the flowers where you like.  

Make the "bare feet welcome" sign and hot glue to the the toothpick.  Stick toothpick in the wreath. 
Tie ribbon and hang.  Done!
