Yummy YARN Winter Wreath

I used a chenille yarn again and made a lovely and simple white wreath that can be used for Christmas and/or all winter long.
I purchased this Bernat Blanket BIG yarn at Michael's. It's HUGE and the color is "Vintage." (About $10/skein at Michael's.)
This is the same yarn I used for my "Yummy YARN Christmas Trees" - previously posted on Hometalk. That post gives the details for covering 3 cones (sizes approx. 14", 11" and 8").
After posting that project, I used poster board to make a 24" cone and covered that in the same yarn; and I made a Christmas gift for someone dear that used approx. as much yarn as an 8" tree. Since I still had MORE yarn, I used the last of it to cover a 14.5" wire wreath form.
When I say I used the last of it, I really used the last of it! I had JUST ENOUGH to cover the entire form and used the 2 tails to form a bow. I tied a knot at the end of each tail. No yarn left on the skein - not even an inch!
I'll leave this wreath on our front door all winter.
So. . . if you were wondering how many projects you could get out of a skein of Bernat Blanket BIG yarn, the answer could be 5 (plus 1 unspecified gift)!
