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.

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!

  4. 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.
