I ended up throwing my polystyrene ring away in frustration that I couldn't get my yarn to stop bunching up! I'm so jealous I love these wreaths.

Oh, bummer!

Which wreath form did you use? Is it the one that was more densely packed? They have one that is very "airy" and I didn't buy that one because I thought it would snag the yarn. I bought the one that was like a bunch of styrofoam pellets fused together (I only found it at Jo-Anns- Michaels and AC Moore didin't carry it) and I didn't have any problems with snags or bunching. When I needed to squish the wraps of yarn together, they slid nicely along the wreath form. Hopefully you can find one that works better!

It was quite densly formed, I bought mine from Hobbycraft (being a UKer!) I think it was more down to my yarn than my form to be honest. I was hoping to use up some hideously itchy pink yarn I've acquired, it's a beautiful colour but so itchy it's not really suitable for anything other than decor and I think it just wasn't chunky enough, though I tried several hooks. When I have some more money (hahaha) I may invest in some super chunky yarn and try again, at the moment I'm only allowed to stash bust and buy very minimal things from charity shops and boot sales etc because I'm saving for a house. (We're currently living in my nan's old house which needs to be sold in the new year ARGH!)

What if you tried a piece of cardboard, maybe even a double thickness? That might work... and it would be nice and inexpensive...

I've also heard of people using pool noodles, cut and duct taped together. I haven't tried this myself, but the theory behind it is sound. Btw- I love the purple wreath! I might give one a try myself.
