If you have visited my blog before, you will have seen my Cotton Ball Snowballs or Trees. This week I thought you might like to learn how to make your own DIY Cotton Ball Rustic Wreath.
What you will need:
1-8 inch Styrofoam ring
1- bag REAL cotton balls
1-box 1-2 inch, pearl head corsage pins (I bought a box of 144, and they will last a life time!)
1-package 12 mm size sequins, in the color of your choice
The first step is to carefully “spread out” each cotton ball. They can come apart easily, so be gentle.
I use REAL cotton because it is more pliable. I have tried using synthetic “cotton balls” and they are not as easy to work with.
The second step is place your sequins on your corsage pins.
Now for the real fun. Place each of the corsage pins in a cotton ball. Then into the foam ring. Add as many cotton balls as you like. This is where your imagination and creativity can go crazy!
For my DIY Cotton Ball Rustic Wreath, I decided to use traditional Christmas red and green sequins.
I really like fairy lights, so I wrapped a string around the wreath, as well.
I just love how my DIY Cotton Ball Rustic Wreath turned out! It is perfect for any style or taste. It was SUPER easy and took me about 1/2 an hour-45 minutes to make. That’s my kind of craft!
I hope you have enjoyed visiting my blog today. It has been a joy to have you here.
Make it a great day!
