so nice of you to join me and have a look at my annual advent wreath making.
For this year I felt all cozy and cuddly and I knew it needed to be something soft. After I cut up my favorite pullover last year it seems to be a trend.
My frequent readers know I am such a sucker for snow. And since it will be a while in my part of the world until we have some – if any at all – I decided on a white snowball wreath this year.
It’s another simple one and probably a great DIY for kids as well. Anyhow I made a tiny tutorial.
It’s actually so simple that it feels weird to write the steps down but here we go.
- Gather your supplies: Cotton balls, wreath form and glue.
- Glue cotton balls on the bottom outside of the wreath form.
- Glue cotton balls on the bottom inside of the wreath form.
- Fill the remaining gap with cotton balls. Don’t do it all symmetrical but mix it up.
- Enjoy your wreath.
Be careful not leave it unattanded if you are thinking about adding a candle. I only put a big one in the middle but I think I might use it as a door wreath.
What I learned:
- Don’t use a glue gun and a foam wreath form.
The hot glue eats it away
- Actually use regular glue its fine and it will stick.
I am quite happy with the outcome. Please share if you decide to do your own version of this wreath.
Happy pre-advent DIYing,
What a cute idea! Thanks for sharing.

Thank you. Some ideas are so simple.
What a cute idea! And you can even use it after Christmas as a door wreath.

Thank you. Yes I can use it after Christmas. Unfortunately I have about 10 wreaths to use by now… upps
