Step 4: Attaching the Balls to the Wreath

Attach the balls to the wire wreath, being careful not to wind the wire too tight just in case you need to make a few adjustments and move yarn balls for a better fit.

Once the all the yarn balls are in place, tighten and trim the wires on the back of the wreath.

January Snowflake wreath

I love this wreath. I know they are snowflakes but to me they look very like starfish and together with the colour scheme it would fit very nicely with my coastal themed room.
