Christmas Cotton Ball Wreath

Were you guys as excited as I was to start seeing all the beautiful home tours starting up this week? 

I shared mine yesterday and if you haven't had a chance to take a peek, you can check it out here

I shared a glimpse of my holiday mantel during the tour and I'm not quite ready to do the full reveal yet. 
I know, I know, but it'll be sooooon. 

And you get another peek at it today :) 

You know I always get bit by the wreath-making bug during any new holiday season so this one wasn't any different.
But I did want something easy & cheap and I found something that was just the ticket. 
Cotton balls. 

I said it. 

And it really is stunning. 

Didn't I tell you?
It's lush & soft and oh, so cheery :) 

Here's all you need: 

Wreath Form (be sure to use your coupon!) 
Cotton Balls (mine were from Kroger and were super cheap) 
White & Gold Jingle Bells
Hot Glue Gun

This tutorial is pretty self-explanatory which is good because I got too caught up in making it to take lots of pictures.
Basically you'll just hot glue your little heart away filling the form with cotton balls until it's poofy enough for your liking. 

After filling it up, I went back through and hot-glued my jingle bells in various places around the wreath. 
It'd be gorgeous in all white or even with a pop of red too! 

I am in love with my new poofy wreath & can't wait to share the full mantel reveal with you guys...tomorrow!!
Yep, I said it. Check back here tomorrow to get all the close-ups and details of my Christmas mantel. 

See you then!!!
