Hey, friends! I’m so excited to share this super easy idea with you today! I’m not going all out with holiday decor this year.
With renovating, travel and work I just don’t have the extra time/$$$/energy to go full force. Can anyone relate? But that doesn’t mean I can’t do a couple super special holiday projects.
And for the record, I would definitely file a disco ball wreath under “super special”. Ummm…it’s my family heirloom!
You wanna make one too?
-wreath form *rant on choosing the right wreath form below
–silver tinsel garland x2 (Get the fluffiest one they have!)
–mini disco ball ornaments (The number you use will depend on the size of your wreath. Use your best judgement, and if you end up with extras, they look cute in a bowl on your coffee table!)
-hot glue gun and sticks
*Crazy story! I made this wreath, broke it into 5 pieces and made it all AGAIN…My floral foam wreath form broke, so the second one I made was with a straw wreath form.
It came wrapped in plastic and I just left the plastic on it and went from there! Don’t take plastic off unless you want to be sweeping up annoying pieces of straw for all eternity!
(Sorry, guys! I accidentally deleted my step photos. But it’s so freaking easy I’m not going to bother retaking them. You got this!)
1. Use hot glue to wrap your wreath form in silver tinsel garland. Make sure it is completely covered with garland.
2. Remove the hook part from the ornaments (mine snapped right off) and glue them all over the wreath, randomly! Repeat until it looks A-MAZING.
A note about shopping—you can find these supplies at most craft stores. You can also find all this stuff on Amazon (just search “mini disco balls” or “disco ball ornament”).
The ones I used are about two inches. I’d go for that size or a little smaller, but probably not bigger unless you are making a GIANT wreath.
Here’s a photo of the first wreath (actually right AFTER it broke in half).
Even though I was bummed BIG TIME over breaking the wreath, it was worth it for this photo. :))
I’m so so excited about this wreath!
Now, can someone come tell my husband that this would look really reeeaally cute on our pink front door? (He’s still stalling on his final FINAL approval of my color choice and it’s killing my soul). LOVE YOU GUYS! Hope your December is so warm and so cozy. xx- Elsie

What size straw wreath did you use?
Lovely job of your wreath, I made two recently using a wire coat hanger & threading the balls onto it. It turned out brilliantly! No hot glue involved… Kids could help with this project..
Kerrie, I made several of those wreaths using hangers and balls and they came out so nice! Gave them as gifts and they were loved. I like this one with garland – makes it fuller.
Awww, really like the sweet family pic with the dogs in the middle :).
How long did it take you to make one of these?
I had my dad (who is a paint contractor) paint our front door pink one day while my husband was on tour. My husband had agreed to it a while back, maybe thinking I wouldn’t get around to it? lol Both he and my dad who were skeptical at first wound up liking the pop of color and how it brightened our whole front porch. I am still in LOVE with it. I hope you can talk him into it, bc it really makes me smile every time I see it!
This is so gloriously festive!! I love an over the top wreath
I made one recently covered in pompoms 🙂
I think this would love amazing with a gold tinsel as well (gold and silver) or a any contrasting tinsel for that matter. It might make the disco balls POP!
That photo of you guys with Dolly and Suki (is that your pug’s name? Or am I getting confused with Emma’s dogs?) is SO precious. I couldn’t love it more if I tried!
I hope the final FINAL approval came successfully, because I think this wreath was meant to climb a pink door and I can’t wait to see that picture too!!Nice work!!
I had no idea pink doors were a thing – I just read this post a few months ago and now yours… maybe this will help with your inspiration.
Definitely super special. Love it!
The second wreath came out so much cuter than the first one! I think the form snapping in half was meant to be 😉 Also I’m dying to have a pink door. Tell him everyone’s gonna have one eventually and you just want to be first 😉
I got them from Hobby Lobby. They’re tiny foam balls covered in small sequins.
This is such a fun idea, I love the finished product!
Nice! What are the smaller balls on the wreath?
Such a great idea! Love the photography too.
A thousand times yes! It’s all of the shiny! I love it.
Hey Jeremy this would awesome in the pink door!! And Congrats to jeremy, the first picture I see you smiling yehhhh 🙂 (obviously Its not really the only one but mostly he is serious in PICs)
This may be my favorite Christmas decoration ever!!
This is awesome! And I actually like the second version better, it has much more texture and looks more interesting. Might have to try this as well 🙂
This wreath is amazing! I love it!
