Pom-Pom Wreath

Hello Everyone, I made a tufted wool pom-pom wreath for myself!   

018

After being inspired by so many of you in blogland, I thought I would try and make one as well!

It was easy to make once I figured out how to use this little gadget. 

005

It is a Pom-Pom maker put out by Clover.  I purchased mine at Jo-Anne’s but you can find them at Michael’s and also on Amazon. 

001

To make the pom-poms for the wreath, I used 2 skeins of yarn.  

004

Once I had all the pom-poms made, I wrapped a straw wreath with burlap ribbon.  Then I hot glued the pom-poms onto the wreath. 

011

It was that easy! 

012

I like doing projects like this!  What about you?    

019

Now that this easy project is done, I’ll be in the garage the rest of the week!  I have some furniture pieces that need some work, which won’t be as easy as this pom-pom project.

As always, thanks for stopping by!

  7. How did I lose track of you? I just saw you on the comment section at Creative Home Expressions. I thought you stopped blogging for some reason. But I deleted my blog roll a while back by accident and didn't realize I had to enter each blog url to get it back. Still working at it.
    I am putting you right back on. Good to see you! Happy new year!

  9. I really love your wreath! I've made one before, but it didn't turn out as fluffy and thick as the ones I've seen around blogland, including yours. I like the idea of wrapping burlap ribbon around a straw wreath. That's a great platform to glue the pompom's on. I will have to get one of those pompom makers if I make any more. That probably helps too.

  11. Gail, I never knew there was a pompom maker! I have been putting off attempting one of these wreaths, mainly because I am lazy and thought of making all those pompoms was not high on my list....oooh, but now I know better and am ready to go. Your wreath is lovely!
