Balls, Balls, Balls!

Get your mind out of the gutter! I’m talking about Christmas balls! As in ornaments! Like I told you guys on Monday, Hobby Lobby was having an epic 50% off all things Christmas sale, so I loaded up. In addition to the glass balls ornaments that I showed you yesterday I also bought a 24 pack of plastic balls to make this wreath.

Let me tell you 24 is not enough! I’m estimating I’ll need at least 80 balls of varying sizes… But I figured I’d share with you what I’ve done so far. I’m definitely finishing up this project tomorrow night so next Tuesday I’ll share all the details!

First take a wire hanger, everybody has at least one unwanted wire hanger, and bend it to form as much of a circle as you can.

Then unwind the top (you’ll probably need pliers) so that you can slip the balls onto the hangar.

Then just slide your balls onto the wreath alternating colors and what not. Don’t worry to much about arranging them at this stage because they all fall together when you pick it up. This is why it’s important to make sure you have a lot of balls so you can pack them in tight for a full look!

I’ll show you complete pictures next week!

Anybody working on any cool Christmas projects this week? Or have an incredibly immature and slightly perverted sense of humor?

  1. 🙂 I was in a play in college (The Three Musketeers, I was a bar wench) and the king at one point (during the big ball assassination attempt scene) declared “Balls, balls, balls. I love balls!” We ended up putting it on our show t-shirts.

    I love the wreath! Can’t wait to see it finished!

  2. I can’t wait to see how it turns out! What a great idea to slip them on a hanger! All of the ones I’ve seen are glued to a styrofoam form, but this seems like it’s so much each and anything that doesn’t involve burned fingers with hot glue I’m all for!
