For about two hours while watching a boring tv show, I was able to wind the yarn around and completely cover the wreath. I should be folding laundry or something, but nah--
I might have spent less than $8 on this one. If I would do it again, I'd probably get the foam wreaths so it's not so bumpy like the straw ones. And if you do have the straw ones, I read that you should leave the plastic wrapping on it so the yarn doesn't get snagged as much.
Happy Valentine's Wreath Making!
