Happy New Year! Seriously, how is it 2016? One of my goals this year is to improve my blog & hopefully grow Our Crafty Mom. What better day to start then today, so I finally made the switch to WordPress & purchased the domain-scary & exciting! My first project for the New Year was to create a cotton ball wreath. I have always loved these, but they can be quite pricey. Take a look at one here:
You see that price? Want to make one for under $5? Let’s do it!

First, I picked up a wreath form & a bag of cotton balls at The Dollar Tree.
I didn’t want any of the green to show, so I wrapped the wreath in some scrap white fabric.
Then take some pine cones & break the ends off. Pull apart the cotton balls to break down the fiber. Get your hot glue gun ready & 2 pulled apart cotton balls together. I glued it to the wreath then glued pieces of pine cone around the sides. Keep going until your wreath is full. I basically did 3 rows. Granted, it is not exactly like the inspiration, but it is so pretty & for under $5 you can’t beat it!
