DIY Snowball Wreath VIDEO TUTORIAL
Step 1: Cover the foam wreath form with yarn. I used two colors just for fun, but anything goes for this part. Alternatively, you could cover the wreath form with fabric strips or ribbon.
Step 2: Hot glue the 4 inch foam ball into the center of the wreath, then glue the 2.875 inch ball on top of that. I cut a small part off the bottom of the 2.875 inch ball to help it sit better on top of the larger one.
Step 3: Glue the rest of the foam balls onto the wreath form in a random pattern.
Step 4: Brush Mod Podge onto all of the foam balls and sprinkle fake snow onto the glue, working in small sections so the glue doesn’t dry before you have time to cover it with snow.
Step 5: Glue the snowman’s hat and scarf into place.
Step 6: Add a pom pom garland across the top and glue on mini snowflakes or other fun decorations. It would be cute to spell out “Let it Snow” on the garland too!
Step 7: (Optional) Add a face to the snowman using small buttons, beads, pins, googly eyes or whatever else suits your fancy.
Of course there are a hundred ways you could take this idea and change it up. That’s what makes these crafts so fun. If you make your own version of this wreath, I’d love it if you sent me a picture. It’s so amazing how people can be so creative and it never gets old to me. I love this little community of craft lovers that we have here, so please don’t hesitate to reach out.
