Snowball Wreath

A couple of months ago I was going through my pins on Pinterest
and came across a super cute snowball wreath
someone had made for winter. I fell in LOVE with it the minute I saw it.
I pinned it forever ago but finally had time to go check it out.
I found it over at Addicted 2 Decorating. To see her post go HERE.

This was something I had to make this year to go with my "Snow" theme for this month. It was perfect for that.

So today, I have the tutorial for you on how I made it!!

Here is my 
SNOWBALL WREATH!


What You Will Need To Make It:


1. My Super Sweet neighbor was cleaning out her craft room last month and brought me over a few boxes of stuff she was getting rid of and in those boxes were styrofoam balls. There were a few in there, but I knew I would need more so I went to Michael's and JoAnn's to get styrofoam balls and a styrofoam wreath. I went to both because of the coupons so it would help with the cost. {I used a lot more balls then are pictured.}

2. A hot glue gun and a few glue sticks. My glue gun has a low setting so it worked perfect for this. If its too hot it will melt the styrofoam. There is also styrofoam glue at the craft store. I have never used it, but I am sure its good.

3. Toothpicks to help secure some of the the balls.

4. Fabric or ribbon to hang it. 


How I Made It:

To start off, I took the biggest balls I had, which I think are 3", and placed them evenly around the styrofoam wreath. Then I went to the next size, which where 2 1/2" and placed those evenly. I kept doing that process until I got a good amount around the wreath. {I used all these random sizes because that's what the lady had given me. You don't need to use all these different sizes if you don't want to!}

All the balls that went into the wreath I attached with a toothpick. Here is the technique I used to do that.


After I got those all into the wreath I hot glued more balls of different sizes on top of the other balls to fill in the holes. I did not use toothpick on these ones.



When I finished getting it the way I wanted it to look, I made a bow out of fabric.
To do this I cut 2 strips of fabric about 3" wide.


I looped one of them around the wreath and tied a knot and the other one I made a big bow out of.

Lastly, I hot glued the bow to the knot on the other strip of fabric.


I am so excited about how it turned out!! EEEK!! It is perfect for those snowy winter months!
