Decorate your front door with a winter wreath before, during, or after the Christmas season. Add faux greenery stems and falling snow to create a cool winter look on your front door.
For the base of this wreath, I reworked my Cheesecloth and Velvet Poinsettia Wreath. The velvet poinsettia flowers were removed, leaving a plain white, cheesecloth wrapped wreath form.
DIY Winter Wreath with Falling Snowballs
This wreath has all the elements of a snowy winter in addition to wintery greenery. The foam balls hang on transparent strings giving the appearance of falling snow.
- foam or straw wreath form
- white cheesecloth
- faux greenery stems
- faux white berry stems
- fishing line (or similar)
- foam balls
- white fuzzy yarn
- large sewing needle
- ribbon (for hanging) optional
Start by wrapping a wreath form in cheesecloth. Use pins to hold the cheesecloth in place.
Arrange the greenery stems onto the wreath form and use pins to hold in place.
Layer the white berry stems with the greenery stems, using pins to hold in place.
Poke the sewing needle through the center of the foam balls. Thread the fishing line onto the needle and push through the hole in the foam ball. Tying a knot in the fishing line should hold the foam balls from falling down the line. Vary the fishing line lengths, and size of the foam balls. I tied small knots of fuzzy white yarn as tiny snowballs.
Use pins to hold the fishing line to the bottom of the wreath.
Hang the snowy winter wreath with a piece of ribbon or wreath hanger of your choice.
This snowy winter wreath perfectly compliments the winter landscape, before or after the holidays. It has some farmhouse vibes but compliments our eclectic home decor style perfectly.
The falling snowballs give the wreath length and gentle movement.

Another Cheesecloth Wreath
Reuse this cheesecloth wrapped wreath form to create a Halloween spiderweb wreath complete with spiders.
I think I’ll leave this wreath up for the rest of winter, then the next wreath on my front door will be my green St. Patrick’s Day wreath.
