Look!: Ornament and Yarn Ball Wreath

We're usually a little too foggy eyed to notice much of anything in the morning, but when we saw this wreath on the door and in the store of our nearby coffee purveyor, we perked up immediately. The look is original and the process of creating your own fairly simple.

Start with a wreath base (usually a sturdy loop of wire), then wrap yarn around the exterior of some styrofoam balls (available at craft stores) of various sizes. Attach both yarn and regular ornament balls to wreath base using thin wire or twisted ornament hooks. The mix of texture is really pretty, as is the use of different colors and styles of yarn (we like the sparkle-y type for this particular project).
