in case you didn’t know, i have a thing for pompoms. easy to make, inexpensive, adorable… need i say more?
i’ve added poms to wreaths in the past, but never before made an entire wreath out of them!
this year i am still in line with my “luxe lodge” theme, but just going a bit simpler and cleaner.
even though its handmade, this wreath feels so luxurious to me! i love having the antlers hanging above the mantle for christmas with some antique crystal garland and a pretty star ornament, and the wreath fit perfectly around it.
its super simple and you can make it in just a couple hours – do it while watching a movie and poof! you’ll be done!
i waited for a yarn sale and grabbed about 6 or 7 different cream & white yarns for this project – some thin, some super thick, some fuzzy.
my wreath is a bit wonky, but i kinda like it that way. i could’ve made it much more uniform and perfect, but i decided to go more free form.
i got a wire wreath form from a craft store as my base.
i made a bunch of pompoms (use this tutorial – i used the pompom makers) and left their strings long for tying. i thought i had made enough, but ended up making about 10 more to fill up some thinner spots on the wreath. i started with the biggest poms (i made 3 sizes), then added the medium and small to fill in – just tying each one onto the wire form – so easy!
hung by a single nail on our wood tv cover and it was done!
