Wreath Christmas Ornaments {pinned there, done that}

This week the kids and I tried out this pin.  It was easy enough, my 10 year old and 7 year old had no problem making their own wreath to add to our tree.  I would only change one thing...the instructions call for hot glue.  You don't need it.  I didn't use any at all, here's what I did....
To start the wreath thread your yarn through the hole near the shower curtain ring clasp, then squeeze it closed.  It keeps the yarn secure & you can start wrapping your wreath.

For the two color wreaths, I wrapped the entire wreath once, then when I neared the top of the wreath, I cut a length of the contrasting yarn, laid the end along the ring (perpendicular to the wrapped yarn) and wrapped over it with the base color.  When I wanted a stripe of the second color, I would switch the yarn, and start wrapping over top of the base color...then switched back when needed.  It takes a little practice, but once you get the hang of it, it goes really quickly.  Have fun!
