Snowball and Cotton Boll Wreath

I'm decorating for Christmas earlier than usual this year because we're going out of town for a week the day after Thanksgiving. I'm excited about visiting family and at the same time anxious because it's a whole weeks setback. I'm sharing my first Christmas project now because I'll be away and I don't think I'll be taking my computer.



 This year I'm doing a snowy woodland winter. I thought a snowball wreath would work well with that theme.However  the thought of making tons of pom poms by hand was not appealing to me so I bought two large bags of white pom poms in assorted sizes and glued them to a Styrofoam wreath that I first covered with an old white sheet torn into about one yard strips.


I glued on a few cotton bolls for a little extra texture and because they're pretty and remind me of snow balls.


 I added a little silver glass glitter to the husk of the cotton bolls for a little sparkle.


 I bought the chalkboard print from Dear Lillie to use on my buffet but I thought it made a pretty back drop for my wreath. You'll be seeing more of that later on. Thanks for stopping by. I'll have a few quick and easy projects to share later. I'll be linking up with these ladies this week,

  8. You did a wonderful job on the wreath. I haven't seen any others like it. It looks great in the vignette. I would love to have one, but I know I would not have the patience to glue all the little cotton balls on it.
