Cotton ball wreath

The Nester is having a 

"You Made a Wreath Out of What?!" Linky Party.

She challenged me to think out of the box when I was deciding what to make mine out of.  
I wanted something different and natural.   And, of course, cheap.  I actually had to go buy some cotton balls ($2) and the wreath form was 40% off at Hobby Lobby ($1.50).  Three dollars and fifty cents is an amount I can take my chances on.  

What do you think?  Weird? Great?  
Wait, don't tell me cuz I think I like it.  

Updated:  Linked up to  Southern Lovely  Show and Share day.


  1. How beautiful! It has the illusion of snow... very original!


  2. This is one of the coolest wreaths I've ever seen! The brown twiggy things are the perfect touch--it totally looks like you created this while you were outside walking around your cotton plantation. I predict that Williams - Sonoma designers are going to be copycatting your original! Now, I'm off to explore the rest of your blog.

  3. That is awesome!

    Found you through Lil Pink Pocket! Am your newest follower

  4. Love this! I'd love for you to link this up with my blog recreation party!

    Hope to see you at my place soon!

  6. I really like it. My bathroom is decorated with a "snow theme" for Christmas. And this would really work!

  7. I would like to make this with my girls for their bedrooms. Would you mind sharing your technique? Is it a foam or flat wreath base? What is your adhesive? pins or glue gun? Thank you!!!

  8. LOVE! Saw it on Pinterest :)

  9. I too had a cotton ball wreath (with the pods) on my front door years ago until my son, Nick burned it too!

  10. I think it's super cute!! And I love your wreath hanger! I have that one too! :)

  11. this vignette is so stunning! can you add a quick tutorial to the comments? :) what wreath form did you use?
    thank you!

    1. Thanks Shelley! It was a grass wreath form and I just hot glued them onto it. A little time consuming but it was fun!

    2. We are having a snow day and will be using this idea. I'm going to have to cut "wreath" forms out of paper plates but its a busy work project for the kids so I don't think they'll mind. Great idea.

    3. Great idea Shannon! DId you make one with your kids? Happy New Year!

  12. WOW...I can't believe it's made a comeback after 50+ yrs! I just loved this one! My mother made these when I was very lasted forrrrrever. She put it in tissue, then a bag and last a box to store. She changed the decorations on it from yr.2yr. too. Loved the red bows and ribbon she used best. I'll be doing one this year...yup-yup...58yrs later, I'm inspired again or 2nd can alternate colors...make in blue...add sparkle, lights, etc., but I prefer the plain white. Memories to wash dishes by as mum said...Thanks, mum!

  13. Saw this on Pinterest & loved it! So beautiful! Thanks for sharing....
