In stores, you will find five different loop yarn products - Bernat Alize Blanket EZ yarn, Big Twist Loopity Loop Yarn, Red Hearts Loop-It Yarn, Loops and Thread Loops Yarn  and Lion Brand Off The Hook Yarn. Links to purchase yarn are at the end of this article.

Easter Loop Yarn Wreath Tutorial - Supplies

INSTRUCTIONS :

STEP 1;

Squirt a little all-purpose glue onto a paper plate.  I am using pins and glue to attach the yarn to the wreath because hot glue has a tendency to melt the Styrofoam and also release fumes.

STEP 2:

STEP 3:

STEP 4:

Continue wrapping the yarn around and scrunching until the form is completely covered.

STEP 5:

Then, with a scissor cut off the excess yarn and with two glue-tipped pins, pin the end to the wreath form.

STEP 6:

STEP 7:

To hang the wreath, just use a narrow ribbon.  The ribbon will disappear between the yarn loops.
