I know you guys are familiar with the Christmas ball wreaths. I promised myself last year that I would collect the ornaments and make one this year. Honestly, I wasn't all that excited about it this year.. But the balls were collected (thrift store and clearance) so here we go.
I was going to use a pool noodle but I picked this straw wreath form up cheap at GW last Saturday. I even found some garland at another thrift store for a few cents. The first thing that I did was to wrap the garland around the wreath hot gluing it ever so often.
Then I hot glued the balls around the inside of the wreath working my way outward.
Then I did a row on the outer edge using random colors but alternating big and small balls.
See the little box holding up the small red ball? I did that under each one for a few seconds while I was gluing the one beside it. It helped hold them in place while the glue dried. Genius, yes I know. Haha.
Here is the finished result. It turned out nice, but I admit that I am not in the mood for lots of Christmas color this year. I decided to hang this on the front door. Most of the balls are plastic. I am not afraid.
This is the backside of the wreath. We have a glass front door so this is the view from the living room.
My first Ball. Wreath that is! Anyway, crossing this off the list.
Have a wonderful weekend friends!
