Last weekend, I started working on my first pom pom wreath. Nothing makes me happier than a sea of pom poms, so making it was a lot of fun to say the least. I originally got the inspiration from a pin on Pinterest, a cute Christmas-y version. I am planning to decorate our booth at the upcoming TNNA tradeshow in June with these. This is the perfect project for scraps and leftover yarns! The photos below will show you how I made mine!
Twig base about 9.5" in diameter from Michael's.
First I wrapped yarn around the twigs and started to make a lot of pom poms!
Clover pom pom makers make the best shapped pom poms in my humble opinion! These ones create 2.5" & 1.25" in diameter pom poms. I used about 6 larger pompoms and 20 smaller ones to make the wreath.
I then hand stitches the bigger pom poms to the yarn base, laying them out how I liked them!
Then, I started to add the smaller pompoms!
And voila! All finished.
A few details shots!
