You’ll love this Frosty, Blue Christmas Snowball and Ribbon Wreath

With frosty blue ribbons in luscious textures and finishes, I could call this the Frozen Christmas Wreath, after the popular Disney movie Frozen. However, I think I’ll call it the Christmas Snowball Wreath, or maybe the Blue Christmas, Snowball & Ribbon Wreath. I’m really not sure – do you have suggestions? What I am sure about, however, is that this wreath is gorgeous! Like I said earlier this week with the Christmas Ribbon Pomander, it’s easy to change out the ribbons and use your favorite colors. But with this wreath, I’m all in for the blues!

DIY this gorgeous Snowball & Ribbon Christmas Wreath on CraftsnCoffee.com.

To make a Blue Christmas, Snowball & Ribbon Wreath, you’ll need:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam:
    • 12” wreath
    • 1” balls, 12 – 14
    • 1-1/2” balls, 5 – 6
    • Block or scrap piece
  • Ribbons:
    • 1” wide velvet, 7 – 9 yds.
    • 1” wide satin, 7 – 9 yds.
    • 1” wide glitter, 1 – 2 yds.
    • 1-1/2” wide iridescent sequin, 2 yds.
  • Textured paint, sparkle finish
  • Thick, white craft glue
  • Tools needed: Scissors; stiff bristle paintbrush; wooden skewer, knitting needle, or other pointed tool; toothpicks; knippers

To make a Blue Christmas, Snowball & Ribbon Wreath

1. Insert and glue toothpicks into the foam balls. You’ll use these as handles while you paint the balls.

2. Paint the balls with sparkle texture paint. Insert toothpicks into a scrap of foam to hold the balls upright while paint dries.

3. Cut one, 8” length of ribbon for the hanger, and cut the remaining ribbons into 4” – 5” lengths. Set aside 4 – 5 lengths of each type of ribbon for Step 5.

It's a Blue Christmas Snowball & Ribbon Wreath over on CraftsnCoffee.com. Full tutorial, too.

Even though all of the ribbons are the same color, mixing up the patterns and textures adds a lot of design interest to the wreath.

4. Add the ribbons to the wreath:

  • Start with the 1” wide ribbons.
  • Apply a dab of glue to the wreath. Bring together the ends of a ribbon length, forming a loop. Place the ends on the glue, and push the ribbon ends into the wreath with a skewer, knitting needle, or other pointed tool.
  • Continue adding loops of 1” wide ribbon, alternating velvet and satin ribbons, till the wreath is covered.
  • Next, add loops of 1-1/2” wide iridescent ribbon.
  • Finish by adding loops of glittered ribbon.

5. Cut the ends of the remaining ribbon lengths to form a point, and trim to 3”. Glue and insert into wreath.

6. Add snowballs by inserting and gluing toothpicks into the wreath. If the toothpicks are too long, trim with knippers first.

7. Knot together the ends of the 8” ribbon, forming a loop. Pin and glue the knot to the back of the wreath.

Beautiful wreath -- and not just for Christmas. I'd display it all winter long. CraftsnCoffee.com has the DIY.

Designer Patty Schaffer skipped the snowballs when she made her Red & White Ribbon Loop Wreath. You can see how easy it is to adapt this idea to your own favorite Christmas colors.

Lots of ribbon (get it at the dollar store) and a wreath of Styrofoam brand foam are all you need to DIY this Christmas wreath. CraftsnCoffee.comWhat would you name this Blue Christmas, Snowball & Ribbon Wreath?
