I continued playing with the concept to make a wreath for our back door. I found that by cutting some of the balls in half it was possible to layer them thus creating more dimension. Before glueing the balls in place, I arranged them, making a few changes here and there to get the right balance.
Putting found objects among the balls adds interest. Here I used some small ornaments that were hiding in a drawer, a couple of berry clusters and a spindle that was sitting on a shelf. With each addition I thought of a new idea and can’t wait to make more of these wreaths using different elements reflective of the seasons. Won’t it be fun to use mussel shells? And what about buttons and wooden spools, game pieces and……..well, you get the idea.
The process is a simple one and is an opportunity for creativity to shine. If you use materials you already have on hand, the only expense is the purchased balls and wreath form. Speaking of the wreath form, there are several that can be used, but I like the metal one because it lays flat on the surface where it hangs.
Here’s hoping you’ll come up with your own creation and share it with the rest of us.
i love your thoughts, so jump right in and share yours
