Happy New Year!  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!

How To Make A Farmhouse Cotton Ball Wreath


  • Dollar Store Foam Wreath
  • Bag of Cotton Balls
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Scrap Fabric

Step 1.

Wrap the wreath form with the scrap fabric so the green wreath form is covered. Add a little hot glue to the initial piece of fabric and the end of the fabric.

Step 2.

Get your hot glue gun ready & 2 pulled apart cotton balls together. Hot glue individual pieces of cotton to the wreath form. 

Keep going until your wreath is full. I basically did 3 rows.

Step 3.

Take some pine cones & break the ends off. Glued pieces of pine cone around the sides until it looks uniform.



Granted, it’s not exactly like the inspiration, but it is so pretty & for under $5 you can’t beat it! These look great hung on old windows, or inside an empty frame.

They are so versatile and can be made in under 30 minutes.
