Handmade Valentine Yarn Wreath

I keep seeing yarn wreaths all over the place and I wanted to try to make one.  Here is how it turned out.
What you need
Wreath form--I used a foam floral wreath--I do not recommend.  It's too crumbly. Use a white styrofoam one if you can.
hot glue gun
Buttons or beads

Place an end of yarn on the inside of the wreath form and place it in a dab of hot glue to keep it in place.  Wrap yarn around wreath keeping it as close as possible to the wrap next to it.  It takes practice to get the wraps straight.  You can tell by looking at mine that I don't have the "perfection" part down yet.  I figured out that it's easier to flip the wreath around and hold the yarn in one hand than to try to wrap with the skein of yarn. Those of you who have done this before, Don't laugh at me!!  I'm figuring it out on my own.  AND, I glued my heart decorations to the wrong side of the wreath!  Duh!  I need to make more decorations and glue it to the other side.  The white yarns were criss-crossed perfectly on the other side.
