Winter Cotton Ball & Jingle Bell Wreath

Happy Monday everyone! I hope your weekend was excellent.

Last week I showed you our Christmas shelves and I focused on showing you how I made a few of the items on display. This week it’s still all about Christmas, and I’m kicking it off with the “almost too easy to be considered a project” cotton ball and jingle bell wreath.

Honestly, this project is beyond easy and perfect for a first time crafter or someone short on time.

Jingle Bell Wreath

Here’s what you’ll need:

- Wreath form, I used a foam water noodle and taped it together at the seam.

- Jingle bells, any size or color you like.

- Cotton balls- I used 2 bags, but it could be more or less depending on the size of your wreath form.

- Hot glue gun & several glue sticks.

First, grab your wreath form.

Next, grab your jingle bells and decide where you want to put them. The placement is totally up to you.

Hot glue them in place.

With the jingle bells in place, grab your cotton balls and start filling in the wreath. Be sure to glue them tightly together so that you don’t see the wreath form.

That’s it! Seriously!!!

Yes, I know. Simple.

But, it’s sooo pretty!

I love the  fluffy texture of the cotton balls with the shiny and sleek appearance of the jingle bells.

And now for the cost breakdown:

-Wreath form- Free, I had the noodle on hand.

-Jingle Bells- $5.00

-Cotton Balls- Free, I had them on hand.

Total: $5.00!

I originally saw this similar wreath in Target. Their price was around $25.00.

I’ll take that $20.00 savings!

Give it try!

Enjoy!

    Have you tried to hang this wreath on a door? If so, what did you use to hang it?

    • HI there! I haven’t tried to hang it yet, but if I did, I would use a large piece of ribbon to hang it.
      I hope that helps! :-D
