Pom Pom Wreath tutorial

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
