Christmas Ornament Wreath

Make your own Yarn Ball and Ornament Wreath for the holiday season!  Simple to make, and easy to customize with your favourite colours!

I wanted to share with you one of my most favourite wreaths ever! I made this one a few years ago, after I saw similar ones in Starbucks. I remember when I saw these my heart did a little pitter patter! So I sipped my eggnog latte while I studied them very carefully, then I ran, literally ran to Michaels to buy the supplies to make one for myself.

Christmas Ornament Wreath

Putting together a wreath like this, is really quite easy.  All you need are a few simple and easy to find supplies, and about 1 hour, or more depending on how fast you want to work.  So get your glue gun ready, it’s time to make a wreath!


Christmas Ornament Wreath

Make your own Yarn Ball and Ornament Wreath for the holiday season!  Simple to make, and easy to customize with your favourite colours!



Here’s what you need:

  • 1 grapevine wreath
  • ~ 40 shatterproof ornaments in red – I used 3 types: shiny (glittery and matte balls)
  • 2 sizes of styrofoam balls (about 35)
  • 2 shades of green yarn
  • glue gun


Here’s how to:

  1. Wrap the styrofoam balls in the yarn.
  2. Then with your glue gun, randomly glue on the balls.  Go wild!
  3. Tip!  I find it easier to glue on the ornaments when I hang the wreath on a door first.  That way you can see what you’re doing a lot easier.
  4. Yes, it’s really that easy!

I love it so much! And it looks so pretty and festive on my Christmas porch! The great thing about this wreath is that you can make it with any ornaments of any colour…tailor it to your Christmas decor!

    Jo-Anna, I love this! The colors and textures are terrific. I wish I had a covered front porch! I have some craft store coupons to use and I think this may be my next project! I have a space on my kitchen door that could use some Holiday cheer. Thanks so much for sharing!

    Hi Jo-Anna. Since my computer died I haven’t been reading my favorite blog as often. So, I just read through all of your posts that I’ve missed over the past week or so. I love all your Christmas decorating and projects!!

    I made those sweet potato biscuits last night to go with creamy potato soup. Boy are those delicious! That recipe is definitely a keeper. : )

    I remembered those as well and made a mental note to give it a try which I did this year. They are such fun and other than taking a little time not hard to make. I posted it a couple of days ago along with the little ones the kids made. I like the fullness of yours. I ran out of balls but you’ve made me think to add more.

    I adore this! But I hate how you make it sound so easy! I’m not sure I could pull it off, but I would love to give it a try! Thinking of trying it in purples and golds… I don’t think I could bear to see my finished project if it completely flopped though! 🙁

    It’s gorgeous, very well done!
