Yarn Wrapped Wreath

I think it's safe to say that I have a craft addiction. I'm sure I'm not the only one out there, am I right? ;)
Anyways, this week at Joann's I saw a cute little owl (pictured below) who I just knew had to be made into a craft. My mom's recent obsession with owls and upcoming birthday made me jump onto the owl bandwagon. I bought him (like 70% off I'd like to add), a wreath, and some coordinating yarn. Way too excited, I got started on the gift right away. Here's what I needed:

After I had all my supplies together, I hot glued the first piece of yarn and started wrapping.
And wrapping.

And wrapping.

And wrapping.

Needless to say, it was a very long process. Maybe 2 hours for the entire wrapping part? And it was very important to keep gluing as I went. Maybe every 3 or 4 wraps would get a glob of glue. However, it was my first time, so I'm sure it'd get easier and faster as I get more experienced. Yes, I said as I get experienced, because this was a craft that I loved!! I definitely plan on doing it again, and for every holiday imaginable.

Anyways, after I was done with all the wrapping, I took my hot glue and globbed as much glue onto Fuzzy Harry's butt as possible and stuck him on. (Yes, we've already named the cute owl.) Here's the beyond cute finished product!

I wish my mom would've let me taken pictures of her response to it! (I was so excited for the craft that I gave it to her a month and a half early! No way I could keep it a secret that long.) She kept running around the house, peeking her eyes through the wreath yelling "Hoo-dee-hoo! Hoo-dee-hoo!"

Linking up with a few new linky parties today:
