Christmas time can be stressful. There is so much to do and so little time depending on when you get started. I have to admit, I have been a workaholic elf in Santa’s workshop ever since I had my first daughter and it is exhausting. I can’t seem to get everything done.
I get so hooked on the perfect decor and after taking so much time pulling everything together I am hesitant to take it right back down. One year I left our tree up until June (no lie). Between decorating and wrapping gifts for everyone I am swamped every year and it’s hard to enjoy the holidays as much as I would like to. So I’ve decided to start decorating in November. Putting my decorations up then allows me time to actually enjoy them. I still add new decor as we get closer to Christmas, but that’s just because I really get into the holiday spirit.
As long as it’s something that is quick and cute, it works for me. So here is an easy DIY Christmas wreath that will help you out if you’re pressed for time and really want to add something nice to your decor. This project will take less than 30 minutes to complete and it looks great!
Holiday “Christmas Ball” Wreath
I purchased the foam floral ring earlier in the year from the Dollar Tree on a whim one day and I’m so glad I did. The wreath turned out great and it really pulls my holiday decor together.
To create this wreath you will need:
- Christmas Ball Ornaments
- Glue Sticks
- Hot Glue Gun
- Wire (for hanging)
- Foam floral wring
I randomly had glitter-glue sticks which are pretty festive so I used them. You can get plain glue as well.
To start the ring I glued balls in the center of the ring and on the outside before I began filling it in. Every wreath is different. I chose to use three different ball sizes and I filled my wreath in randomly.
I think it turned out great for nothing more than a $1 foam floral ring and leftover Christmas ornaments from my tree. I would recommend storing the wreath in its own box after the holiday to prevent any balls from falling off. Hot glue isn’t at all like Super Glue. Things can pop off with a little tug. Have fun with it anyway. Perhaps your kids can make their own.
