Easy-to-Make DIY Snowball Wreath

If you’re looking for a unique homemade Christmas wreath I hope this snowball – falling snow wreath will inspire you!

This wreath is so pretty and so easy to make and perfect for Christmas and through the winter months. Just change out the ribbon after the holidays and use until the final snowfall.

How to Make a Snowball Wreath

One of my favorite things about this DIY project is that you don’t need any expensive supplies.

I used coupons to get mine from Hobby Lobby but you could find many of the items on Amazon or at the Dollar Tree especially if you shop at a larger one with a good crafts section which is where I got all of the supplies to make this Mophead Christmas Gnome.

Supplies needed:

Please note that some of the supplies linked below are the actual products I used to make my Snowball Wreath and some are similar products when an exact match could not be found.

Styrofoam Wreath Form – 10 Inches – You can make a larger wreath if you would like! I went with this size simply because I already had one on hand from the Dollar Tree

1 Package of cheesecloth

Christmas/winter type floral picks

Snowballs

Greening Pins

Candy Cane Wire Edged Ribbon

Fluffy white yarn/snow yarn

Clear Thread

Glue Gun and Glue Sticks

  1. Wrap cheesecloth around the styrofoam wreath securing with greening pins on the back of the wreath.
  2. Attach picks using the greening pins to the center of the wreath facing in opposite directions.
  3. Cut off small pieces of the snow yarn and tie into two knots to form a small ball/snowflake.
  4. Cut 4 various lengths of the clear thread and attach snowball and knotted yarn to the thread with glue gun allowing a few inches in between each snowball and knotted yarn.
  5. Attach the strings to the back of the wreath with either the greening pins or hot glue.
  6. Make a bow from the ribbon and place in the center of the floral picks.
  7. Hang the wreath using ribbon.

The above is a close-up view of the snowballs and the knotted yarn to give you a better idea of what it looks like.

And, here it is with a black background. It’s a little abrupt but I think it also gives a clearer view of all of the elements of this simple to make snowball wreath.

I love how this project turned out!

I haven’t changed my ribbons out but I may do that so that I can keep using this wreath throughout the winter months.
