I thought that hers was so lovely, I would take a stab at making one as a gift for my mother on her birthday. Erin told me that to create a smooth appearance, she wrapped the wreath with fabric first. Then she wrapped it with yarn and used carefully applied hot glue to keep everything together. I followed her same basic steps, but I used stick pins to secure the ends of the fabric and yarn (only on the back, non-visible side). I hate working with hot glue!
I had a lot of fun making this gift for Mama, and the embellishment possibilities are endless! What an excellent way to de-stash!
