How to Make a Tone-on-Tone Yarn Ball Wreath

Bring texture, shape and unexpected color to your front door this holiday season with a wreath made from balls of yarn in your seasonal palette.

Warm, Wintry Wreath

Add a warm and cozy touch to your front door with a handmade yarn ball wreath. You'll need: skeins of yarn in 3 to 5 different shades of the same color; hot glue gun; hot glue sticks; foam spheres in three different sizes; wire wreath form; scissors.

Create a Color Scheme

Gather three to five skeins of yarn in different shades and tints of the same color. This range in hue will give the wreath depth.

Wrap Spheres With Yarn

Cover each of the foam spheres by completely wrapping them with one color of yarn. To do this, unfurl the skein, then wind the yarn around the ball until the foam is completely concealed.

Secure Yarn With Glue

Once the entire foam sphere is covered, cut the end of the yarn with scissors. Next, secure the cut end of the yarn in place with glue.

Glue Spheres to Wreath Form

Place each complete sphere in place on the wire form, then secure it with glue.

Create Layers

To add depth, create layers by placing spheres on top of and in between each other.

Display

When you're finished, you can either add ribbon and turn the wreath into a one-of-a-kind chair swag (guests will swoon!), or use an over-the-door hanger to add festive charm to your front door.
