Steps:

  1. Pull out a decent amount of yarn and cut it free of the skein. Then tie one end around the wreath tightly. Position the knot at the back of the wreath.
  2. Begin winding the yarn around the wreath, adjusting the yarn as you go, to remove any gaps so that the foam doesn't show through.
  3. If you get the end of your yarn and need more to finish the wreath, simply secure the end of yarn at the back of the wreath and tie on a new piece. Continue wrapping.

  5. Cut out a heart template, making a heart that is just begin enough to drape over the edge of the wreath. Cut them out and lay them on the wreath to test fit them and position them. Then hot glue them in place.
  6. to create the argyle look, attach the end of a piece of yarn to the back of the wreath with hot glue. Then bring the yarn around to the front, diagonally over a heart. NOTE: I recommend test wrapping the yarn, before gluing, to make sure it is positioned properly.

  8. Work your way around the wreath. You will be crossing over each heart on one side, then reversing direction to create the "X".
  9. Once you have crossed over each heart twice, secure the end of your yarn to the back of the wreath with hot glue.

This is really beautiful, and a great way to use an extra unneeded skein of yarn.
