Last Minute Christmas Craft

I really didnt do any crafting this Christmas. Not for lack of wanting to, I just never really got around to it. But when I saw this idea in an email from Joann's a few weeks back, I knew I wanted to try it. I had a bunch of foam balls I bought at a yardsale, so all I needed was the yarn. I dont knit or crochet (although I would like to learn), but I thought it was really cute.
I decided on blue & white because blue is my favorite color and I just love blue & white together. I didnt have the right size balls so I used the next size smaller and a few more than the picture shows. I also left out the knitting needles. I dont love my bow, but I am not good at tying those things, especially with wired ribbon.

This isnt craft related, but I wanted to share these since the Christmas decorations all got packed away today. I picked these up awhile back at a yardsale. I just love the soft colors and glitter. The box says Christmas by Krebs. I dont know anything about them. The cap of one of these says "West Germany" but the box says it's made in America. Anyone know anything about these?

I hope you have a happy new year!

Christmas by Krebs is usually sold at those year round Christmas type stores. (There seemed to be plenty of those in Florida for some reason!)

Soooooo cute! I've never seen a wreath like that! Just wandering... how did you attach your balls together to form the wreath?
