How to Make a Cottage-Style Yarn Ball Wreath (page 2 of 3)

We made this nautical-inspired wreath two different ways. The first version is adorned with Christmas ornaments for the holidays, and the other version we left natural so we can display it throughout the rest of the year.

Skewer the Balls

Lay out your design; determine where on the wreath you will adhere everything. Cut the skewers in half. Cut them at an angle, so there is a point on each end. Push half of the skewer into the foam ball and the other half into the foam wreath.

Add Rattan Balls

Attach the rattan balls onto the wreath using the hot glue gun. Hold the ball in place until the glue is completely dry.

Attach Seashells

Use the glue gun to adhere shells and starfish in between the yard and twine balls.
