It takes about 50-60 pom poms to make this wreath depending on how full you want it to be
When creating your pom poms be sure to leave a long tail of thread or wire so you can use that to attach it onto your wreath form, This wreath form was from michaels, i bunched them up about 3 together, i used 3 different yarns for this one, 1 Cream ball – Charism by loops and thread, 1 White ball – charisma by loops and thread, and a bernat blanket yarn in a cream colour
to make your pom pom smooth and fluffy like i did check out my prior blog post where i show you how to do it POM POM TUTORIAL
I used floral wire to make and attach my pom poms as shown its nice a strong and i dont have to worry about it snapping if i were to use a thread or yarn, because i used the wire it will create a surface that can scratch your door so after i create my entire wreath i will put felt or fleece on the back to create a barrier between the wires and the door
i kinda want to smoosh my face in it
i just cut my felt and hot glued it onto the back to cover up the wires
Fold up the bottom 1/2 to hem the wrists, use a Zig Zag stitch
Tac the end of the elastic at one end, place it above your hem line, using your zig zag stitch sew down the elastic while pulling it tight to stretch it to the end of the glove as shown
By stretching the elastic is allows the glove to gather on its own and will help keep the cold air out
fold the glove right sides together as shown and pin/clip around the edges, sew around the glove to close it up, not necessary to sew the folded edge, back stitch a bunch at the wrist part as their will be more stress from being pulled on and off
and thats about it! snip the corner between the fingers and the thumb being sure not to slice the stitches and clip around the finger tips and thumb to help the fabric round out once flipped
Great scrap buster and i dont feel so bad if my kids loose them!
