Fabric Ball Spring Wreath

I am over winter and ready for color! I had seen a fabric ball wreath a long time ago on Pinterest, but I remember having a hard time finding the original link. It was always in the back of my mind as something I wanted to try, so why not now?! As I wondered around Joanns one day, I found this gorgeous collection of aqua, lemongrass green, and gray fabric. I just knew I had to finally make a fabric ball spring wreath!

MATERIALS:
18″ wreath form
10 designs with 2-3 2.5″x42″ strips each
Extra fabric of the pattern for the wreath form
15 3″ foam balls
35 2.5″ foam balls
24 2″ foam balls
Straight Pins
Hot glue gun and sticks
Scissors or pinking shears

I love an imperfect, more rustic look to my crafts, so I used scrissors for cutting the fabric. If you want a cleaner look, consider using pinking shears so the fabric doesn’t fray.

A friendly tip: this wreath is gorgeous and worth every penny, but you will want to buy your materials slowly using coupons. Styrofoam balls are surprisingly expensive – at least surprisingly to me. This might make complete sense to you.

DIRECTIONS:
1. I wanted the wreath wrapped in a coordinating color, so I used one of the fabric designs to wrap the entire Styrofoam wreath form. I bought a little extra of this fabric though because the strips provided would not cover an 18″ form. I used straight pins for this entire process, putting 1 pin at the beginning and end of each strip.
2. Cut the fabric strips! This process is easy but takes a little time. For the 3″ and 2.5″ balls, I cut the strips into .6 wide strips. (Really, I cut in half and in half again.) For the 2″ balls, I cut in half once again, so about .3″ wide.
3. Wrap the Styrofoam balls with the fabric. I placed a pin at the start of the strip and began wrapping it around the ball. I used a criss cross pattern to get a more snug fit. Then, I used a pin at the end of the strip.
4. Once all the balls were wrapped, I placed the 3″ balls on the wreath using hot glue. I wanted to place the largest one on the wreath first and used a slight zig zag pattern. Then, I went to the next size and so forth. Hot glue as you go to secure them all in place!
5. Once I was happy with how it looked, I used a small piece of fabric to make a loop on the back to hang the wreath. I first hot glued the loop in place and then secured with straight pins.

    Love this wreath! If you have a Dollar Tree nearby, they have bags of balls with different sizes in each bag. Now I have to get to the store before they are all gone!!
