This sea­sonal wreath starts with left­over yarn in white and dif­fer­ent shades of green. Hot-glue one end of one shade of yarn to a 14-inch foam wreath, and then wrap the yarn around the wreath un­til the foam is com­pletely cov­ered. Add dabs of glue at key points to keep the yarn in place. Next, wrap foam balls of dif­fer­ent sizes—any­where from 1 to 3 inches—with var­i­ous shades of yarn. Wrap in all di­rec­tions to add di­men­sion and to cover the foam. Glue all of the balls to the wreath in a de­sign of your choos­ing. Em­bel­lish with two knit­ting nee­dles stuck into the top of the wreath, then hang this hand­made lucky charm on your door and en­joy.
