Straw Floral Wreath Repurpose

I found this wonderful floral wreath base at Goodwill for .99cents and I could immediately imagine some fun twists on all the awesome wreaths I have been seeing. First of all....I would display this wreath without any adornments. I *love* the look of bundled straw. Second of all, the blue "flowers" that you see in there are actually made out of heavy duty plastic tarp. Fun, huh?? I've been trying to think of a way to bring a tarp into my art. The other flowers are made of a strong canvas and the string is just a cotton yarn. This wreath should be ready to handle the spring weather!!
Here's the basic overview:

Wrap the wreath with your color choice of yarn. Bailing twine would be fun too....but you might want to do something different with the flowers if you go that route. 
 Make those lovely little twist flowers that you know you've been seeing EVERYWHERE. They are the cutest. Here's one tip: If you choose to use a tarp (it's an odd choice, I know) beware of the melting factor....the second that glue/metal tip touches the tarp it is **melting**. So, twist and place it fast!!
That's it!! Pretty easy, huh??
Here are some parties I linked up to, check them out....you will be inspired!!!!
