How to Make a Winter Yarn Ball Wreath


  • styrofoam balls in 3 sizes  (I used 3 inch, 2 inch and 1 inch balls. Anything close would be fine). 5 large, 12 medium, 18 small. Do not get smooth styrofoam, they are almost impossible to wrap… I tried! Use the standard type of styrofoam.
  • yarn in different colors and textures. I used 1 skein for each color. My wreath colors are black, dark gray, light gray, sparkle gray, cream and white. I used colors that would look best on my front door.
  • a few burlap balls
  • snowy pinecones
  • 1 flat 14 inch styrofoam wreath
  • burlap strips (You can buy burlap in rolls or cut your own) 
  • metal u U pins 
  • hot glue gun

Step 1. Start by wrapping burlap ribbon or strips around the entire wreath. Secure the end of the burlap with a U pin or hot glue.

Step 2. I chose 5 different yarn colors. I also chose a fun white fuzzy yarn. It reminded me of snow! Wrap the styrofoam balls with just enough yarn to cover the styrofoam balls. Tuck the end of the yarn under the wrapped yarn to secure. Wrap all the balls.

Step 3. Use hot glue to arrange and secure the yarn balls onto the wreath. Also tuck a pinecone and burlap ball in your wreath here and there.
