The Steps for How to Make the Easy Christmas Crafts: Snowball Wreath Ornament:

Draw a circle the size you want the ornament to be on the poster board (or chip board).

Next, draw a second circle inside the first such that there will be 1-inch of width around the doughnut shape.

Or, print the Snowball Wreath Ornament pattern and use one of the two shapes for sizing the background.

Cut the doughnut shape from the poster board (or chip board).

Snowball Wreath Ornament step 1 cut background circle from the poster board

Add a generous amount of glue around the doughnut shaped background.

Fold the ribbon and position the ribbon ends on the glue.

Add more glue over the ribbon ends.

Snowball Wreath Ornament step 2 add glue and ribbon

Position the cotton balls on the glue around the background.

Snowball Wreath Ornament step 3 add the cotton balls to the glue

Place a small dot of glue on a scrap piece of paper.

Use a bent paper clip to add a small amount of glue to a bead.

Glue the bead to the cotton ball.

Add as many beads or decorations as you desire.

Snowball Wreath Ornament step 4 glue the beads

Allow the glue to dry.

Snowball Wreath Ornament step 5 allow the glue to dry

The fun and easy Snowball Wreath Ornament is finished and ready to display.

Snowball Wreath Ornament step 6 hang to display

The hardest part of this project is cutting the center from the background poster board.

But, it doesn't have to be perfect since it will be hidden by the cotton balls.

This is another project that can almost be completed faster than it takes to go through the instructions. 

Have fun!

The Snowball Wreath Ornament can be a fun decoration for children to make or for adults to do with more sophisticated results using a variety of bling.
