There’s something about the holidays that brings out the DIY spirit in me! I love creating different things each year and incorporating them into my decor. This year, I saw an adorable wooden ball wreath on Pinterest and knew I had to recreate it!
I headed to Michael’s Craft Store to gather up my supplies. I was able to get everything except the split wooden balls, which I ended up ordering from Etsy.
The project was simple, and I am so happy with the results! I ordered enough balls to make two wreaths, so I plan on making a Spring version too!
Here’s a quick video or you can skip to the instructions below:
2″ split wooden balls (I used 16, but this pack of 15 would work just fine!)
Greenery of your choice (I got mine from Michael’s Craft Store)
Floral wire (Or here’s some on Amazon)
16″ Wooden wreath form
Wood Glue (I used this one, but this one is also great and sturdy)
Draw a thin line of glue along approximately 2/3 of the wooden wreath form. Arrange the split wooden balls in the glue, ensuring they are centered on the wreath form. Wait until the glue is dry so your balls are secure before adding the floral stems.
Cut the greenery/floral stems apart and trim. Using the floral wire, tightly wrap the stems around the bare part of the wreath form starting with the larger, leafy stems and then adding the smaller/more decorative ones on top.
Check for gaps, then add any necessary greenery, flowers, pine cones, etc and secure with the wire. You could alway use hot glue to add the stems, but it does have a tendency to pop off of certain materials when it gets cold. I ended up not using all of the stems I had purchased and was able to return those to the store. When the wreath is nice and full with greenery goodness, you’re all set to hang it! Use a wreath door hanger or Command Hooks to display your masterpiece!
