I have been working on a few fresh Christmas ideas for our home. This past week, I made a DIY Cotton Ball Rustic Wreath that was super easy.
I thought you might enjoy making one of your own, too. I have a full tutorial below. BUT, first…
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- 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
**For added texture and dimension, I added battery operated fairy lights and a pinecone garland
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.
Once the foam ring was full of cotton balls, I wrapped a pinecone garland around the wreath, loosely.
I really like fairy lights, so I wrapped a string around the wreath, as well.
It’s pretty on your front door or hanging with your indoor Christmas decorating, 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 30-45 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!

So cool! I was actually trying to figure out how to make rustic cotton balls recently and gave up and just bought some. This is such a pretty wreath. #12DaysofChristmas2018
Saw you on Christmas Cuties and wanted to see your pretty wreath. Love the cotton ball effect.
This is super cute. Would be fun to make with friends or kids. Pinning.
