I know, I know everyone else is already posting about Valentine’s Day.  But I have a few more winter posts I want to share before the red and pink make their appearance here!  Today I am sharing a cute winter snowball wreath that you can make from items at the dollar store! 

Winter Snowball Wreath

Why not decorate for winter?  We skip straight from Christmas to Valentine’s day and a whole bunch happens in between the two!  Snow, Super Bowl, Mardi Gras…so I am making a cute winter wreath to celebrate the first thing listed…Snow!

Supplies Needed:

  • 10” styro-foam wreath form
  • styro-foam balls (4 pkgs large, 4 pkgs small) {found at dollar tree}
  • hot glue and glue gun
  • Optional embellishments of felt, embroidery floss, ribbon, small wooden plaque, chalkboard paint, chalk and small dowel rod.

Snowball Wreath Supplies

Note: I picked up my wreath form at Hobby Lobby and all the Styro-foam balls at the Dollar Tree. They were in the aisle with all the children’s craft supplies. This is a HUGE find and money saver because Styro-foam is expensive! I used my 40% off coupon for the form at HL. The embellishment supplies I already had on hand.

This is the best tutorial ever…ready for the instructions???  Glue the Styro-foam balls onto the wreath form!  Bam!  Done!  Seriously…not even joking! 

Then for the embellishments I had a small wooden plaque that I painted in chalkboard paint and wrote the words “Let it Snow’ in chalk when it was dry.  I hot glued this to a small dowel rod to use as a sign.  I needed something to “hold” the sign so I simply cut mittens from blue felt and used embroidery floss to give the mittens some details!  Note: I double up the felt when I detail with embroidery floss because the floss seems to pull the felt when you only use one layer. 

I hot glued all the embellishments on the wreath and tied the wreath up with some ribbon to hang!

Winter Snowball Wreath

I think this is a super cute way to celebrate the winter months!  We have to live through it to get to Spring so we might as well embrace it and make cute decorations right?  I will admit though…if I still lived in Minnesota I would not have made this wreath because when you live there…you are sick of all the snow :)  But that is just a personal note and now I live in St. Louis where snow comes, we enjoy it, it melts and the next day we are wearing shorts because it’s 70 degrees ;-)

And That’s What Che Said…
