Yarn Ball Wreath

I remember seeing these at Starbucks last year, and thinking I am so all over that....but alas, having newborn twins seriously put a cramp on my Christmas crafting! Fast-forward one year, and I run across this amazing version at life through the lens, and again I think, I am so all over that. And guess what!?!
I did it! It was a super quick project to put together--I could do it even in my sleep-deprived mother-of 1 year-old twins and an energetic 3 year-old sorry state. I mean, it's winding yarn around styrofoam balls! Nothing sharp involved, I even used glittered foam balls in place of the glass ornaments (safety first, folks). Chloe made friends with one of the yarn balls, chatting and cuddling with it. Yep, that's my child, bff with a ball of yarn.
I used yarn from my stash, and cut out a cardboard circle to hot-glue the balls to. So all-in-all, a very thrifty project.
Thanks for stopping by!

i think this is so awesome. reminds me of our Chris.

and wouldn't that be a cool way to present a gift to a knitter. i'm sure there's a way to do this so the yarn can be used. so cool.
