Heavy Metal Letter Meets Pretty Yarn Wreath

A while ago I got this awesome metal G on Etsy (click here for shop: Heavy Metals) I decided to make a yarn wreath for our front door and feature this great metallic piece!

What you'll need:
 14in foam wreath base
 Hot glue and glue gun
 "do-dads" for decorating your wreath
 Awesome Metal letter from Heavy Metals Etsy shop!

Start by wrapping the yarn around the wreath. This is the most tedious part. It takes forever.  Once you get into a groove it it's not so bad. Make sure you designate one side for show and one side for hardware, gluing, etc.  I glued the first end of yarn down so I didn't have to worry about holding it secure.

Once I had about 3/4 of the wreath wrapped in blue, I switched to brown yarn.  Again, I used a dot of glue on the back to hold the new yarn down.

Started gluing on the "do-dads"

I used a screw-in hook hanger on the back with a little extra glue to hold it tight (when in doubt add hot glue)

Finally, I used fishing wire to hang the metal G from the top of the wreath.  From afar, it looks like the G is floating!
