I love Christmas ball wreaths. Vintage, modern, colorful, monochrome – they are all unique and epitomize a festive holiday. I made a few wreaths of my own this year: one to keep and two to give away.
I found several methods for making them on Pinterest, and chose a tutorial that uses a coat hanger. It isn’t hard per se, but if I ever do it again I will use something more structured because one of my wreaths is a little asymmetrical. I also notice that when I use several different sized Christmas Balls (like in the center wreath) it is harder to keep a pattern going and to stay as circular. The silver and turquoise wreaths are made with the same size Christmas balls with a few smaller ones for fill.
I like adding decorative ribbon and holiday decor elements (like the garlands and sparkly wrapping wire). They don’t need much more than that. The top of the wire hangar is a built-in hook to use with a long door hanger.
I spent about $50 for enough Christmas ornaments and decorations for these wreaths. But next time I’ll shop on clearance after the holiday and have an inventory for next year.
