Damask Ball Wreath

I'm excited to be part of a crafty group of bloggers to have a "craft night" every month!
They are awesome, be sure to stop by their blogs and see their take on this project:
Kari from Newlyweds on a Budget, Marilyn from 4 You with Love,
Anna from Directions Not Includedand Laura from Smallgood Hearth.

Our project this month was inspired by this wreath we found on Pinterest by Making it Fun:

...and here is my version!

I designed it to go with my Monogrammed Canvas:

It was kind of more work than I had planned, but I love the final look! 

Here's what I used to make my wreath:
12" Wreath Form
Scrap Ribbon
12 Large Styrofoam Balls
48 Small Styrofoam Balls
Damask Tissue Paper
Mod Podge
Hot Glue

First, I wrapped all the balls with strips of tissue paper and stuck on with Mod Podge.
{See my other damask ball/apothecary jar project here}

Paint the back side of the tissue paper strip with Mod Podge and wrap it around the ball.
If there are empty spots, you can add on smaller pieces. Let dry completely.

I had a vine wreath I found at the dollar store, but it's kind of hard to glue the balls onto the wreath sometimes.
So, I used some scraps of ribbon I had on hand and wrapped the wreath. I didn't want the pink ribbon to show through the wreath, so I took it out and gave it a coat of black spray paint {just to the one side}.

Next, I attached the balls to the wreath with hot glue.

I love it!!
