Hey friends, it’s Jeran from Oleander + Palm. I’m excited to share with you a really easy DIY felt ball wreath tutorial that used a couple fun products from The Land of Nod and a 6” metal hoop from the craft store. I’m all for decorating every room a little for the Holidays. My kids all have their own little mini Christmas trees in their bedrooms so that they can load them up with all their favorites and the fun ones they make at school. But, this year I made these cute little wreaths to hand on the end of the girl’s beds. You might remember their adorable bedroom that was in The Land of Nod catalogue, it’s jam packed with cute Nod pieces.
- Felt Garland
- Paper Bows
- Glue Gun
- 6” metal hoop
- Gold ribbon
Here’s how to make it:
Start by wrapping the garland around the metal hoop a couple of times. Add a spot of hot glue to hold it in place.
Continue wrapping the garland tightly around the hoop.
- When you get to the end, glue the last ball well to the other balls.
Look over the wreath and if there are gaps, add a spot of glue and press the felt balls together to cover the hole.
Remove the tag from the paper bows and hot glue the bow onto the wreath.
- Tie the wreath onto a bed frame or door with a piece of gold ribbon.
