By: Annabelle Keller for STYROFOAM Brand Foam

Christmas Knitting WreathIf you are a knitting fan, create this jolly Christmas knitting wreath with the colors of red and green. You only need a small amount of yarn to cover what are actually inexpensive foam balls.

    • Wreath, 12" x 1-1/4" x 3/4"

  • Pencil
  • Ruler

  1. Trace foam wreath twice onto railroad board. Cut out shapes and glue to front and back of foam wreath. To make hanger, fold floral wire in half and wrap around wreath ring to form loop; twist ends to secure.
  2. Completely cover wreath by wrapping uneven bands of yarn around board-covered foam. Secure yarn at beginning and end with thick glue; let dry. Note: If available, loosely clamp wreath in place to hold while wrapping; protect wreath with towel to prevent damage.

Railroad Board is a smooth, thin, bristol-type board, colored on both sides, that is used for signs, posters, mailing cards, tickets, tags, and so forth. I found this on a website called Blick, I just googled railroad board and lots of things popped up. I know this is incredibly late for an answer, hopefully it will help someone.

What is railroad board and where does one find this?

Railroad board? Never heard of it.
