Cover Ornaments With Yarn

Apply glue to the first ornament, covering the entire circle. Place the end of the yarn in the center of the glue then wrap yarn in a circular motion, keeping each pass very close to the previous layer so none of the printed design below shows through (Image 1). Continue spiraling yarn until entire ornament is covered (Image 2). Repeat for the red and brown ornaments, using the coordinating color of yarn (Image 3). Score card in center to make folding easier, then fold in half and add a personal holiday message to the card's interior.
