I have been thinking about making a Pom-Pom wreath for at least a year, maybe even
more, but I have always talked myself out of doing so.
work to make this DIY Pom-Pom Winter Wreath.
You know I like this wreath because it reminds me of…
snow balls, which then of course,
leads us to snowmen, which I always, always loved to make when I was a child.
But this is another story that I will share when we get closer to Christmas.
So here we go, just imagine a light dusting of snow, hot cocoa steaming on your craft table
and you and I about to begin this wonderful craft project.
Now, you know this pom-pom wreath could be made out of any color of yarn, so if you
want color, then seize the moment and do it!
But since I wanted to keep the look crisp, light, and reflecting frosty Winter
mornings and snowy afternoons, I used white.

The directions are below, and very easy to follow.
DIY~Pom-Pom Winter Wreath
~ 1 Large and 1 medium pom-pom maker
~ Simply Soft acrylic yarn: white.
~ Flat white florists wreath (in the diameter of your choice)
~ Hot-glue gun and glue sticks or fabric glue.
~ Pom-pom trim
~ Decorative Ribbon (for hanging wreath)
~ Sharp scissors
I have included a Youtube Video for instructions on how to use the pom-pom maker.
These little pom-pom gadgets are amazing to use and the pom-poms work up very quickly.
Make enough pom-poms to cover the front of the wreath form.
(I made 3 sizes, I trimmed some of the pom-poms to make them smaller)
After all my pom-poms were made I “shaped,” them because I wanted a uniform look.
Glue pom-poms to wreath form using fabric glue or hot-glue gun, alternating sizes.
Glue one end of the pom-pom trim to the back of the wreath form, and wind the trim around
the wreath, filling spaces between the larger pom-poms.
Glue trim end to back of the wreath.
The video is only about 4 minutes long, and if you haven’t used a pom-pom maker
before, I highly recommend watching it.
Now, I am a little obsessed with making pom-poms, I will not lie.
So in my next post I will be embellishing pillows with handmade pom-poms…wink…
