How to Make a Fabric Ball Wreath

This fabric wreath is great to hang because it displays a range of colors and prints. There is no sewing involved, just cut and glue. If the wreath is going to be outdoors, outdoor fabric is a great option because it’s water and sun resistant.

Step 1: Glue the styrofoam circle

Cut 2 inch wide strips out of any of the fabrics. Paint the fabric glue to the wrong side of the fabric. Wrap the strip of fabric around the styrofoam circle and smooth it out as you’re gluing. Glue several strips of needed to complete the circle.

Step 2: Attach the ribbon

Cut a 24 inch long piece of ribbon and tie both ends to the Styrofoam circle approximately 4 inches apart. Take the glue gun and glue the knots to the frame so it’s more secure.

Step 3: Cut the strips of fabric

For the small size Styrofoam balls, cut 1/2 inch wide strips out of any of the fabrics. For the medium size ones, cut 3/4 inch wide strips. For the large Styrofoam balls, cut 1 inch wide strips. The strips should be about 15 inches long. It will take 4 to 5 strips for each of the Styrofoam balls. You can use any fabric you want for the different sizes, by mixing and matching them.

Step 4: Glue the fabric strips

On the wrong side of the fabric, glue along the strip and smooth it out with a paintbrush. Wrap the strip around the styrofoam ball. Do the same for the other strips, wrapping them in different directions. Smooth it out as you go. If you’re using a large print, it’s best to use it on the large styrofoam balls so you can see the pattern. Continue this until all the balls are covered.

Step 5: Glue the styrofoam balls to the wreath

Starting at any point you like, take the hot glue gun and glue the styrofoam balls to the frame. Start with the larger sizes and fill in the spaces with smaller ones. Once you’ve reached the end, your fabric ball wreath is complete.
