Yarn Ball Wreath DIY!

The wreath is done and I love it!  It was inspired by this wreath, but I wanted something more simple in all the fall colors I love!

I used a slightly different method than the one that was used in the tutorial.  Here is what I did!

1. I wrapped yarn around 12 2inch styrofoam balls.  While wrapping I would glue to insure that the yarn would stay (same as the other tutorial). It will dry clear. (I used Aleene's tacky glue)

2. I took a large tapestry needle and piece of embroidery thread and strung all the yarn balls together. Then tied it off tight!

3. Then I cut a circle out of a cereal box.
4. Using hot glue, I glued the circle to the back of the threaded together yarn balls.

5. Almost there.... To hang it I braided two of each of the yarn colors together.  You could use anything you wanted... ribbon, fabric strips.

6. Hang and you're all done!

Please remember this is not an original idea it was inspired by the wreath I saw here.  I just wanted something a little different and used the knowledge from reading that tutorials to create this one :).

Let me know if you decide to create this little wreath... I would love to see your take on it!
