  • Level:beginner
  • Time:less than 2 hours

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Wrap yarn around a foam ball until covered. Weave the end through the yarn to secure.
  • 2
    Cut a piece of wire, 6"” for the big foam ball and 4”" for the small foam ball. Put the wire through the surface of the foam ball, just enough to go through Styrofoam. Meet the ends together and twist. Then, secure it to the wire frame, twist again, and cut off any excess.
  • 3
    Repeat until wreath is covered to your liking. Use hot glue to connect each yarn-covered foam ball.
  • 4
    Cut 32"” piece of ribbon and loop through the back of wire wreath. Bring ends together and tie a knot. Hot glue the bird into the wreath.
