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

 

How to make a Pom Pom

For these particular pom poms i used Charism by loops and threads and bernat blanket yarn

I took some thick cardboard and i cut a circle from jar lid, this one is about 6″ in diameter, cut a circle in the middle and a notch out of the side. If you don’t enjoy this method there are other devices out there that can help make pom poms but if your cheap like me a box will suffice

Wrap the yarn around the circle trying to keep it all ontop of each other so all the threads are of the same length, be sure not to wrap too tight as it will slowly bend the cardboard

When you have reached your desired amount, the less yarn the thinner, the more yarn the fuller Tie off the centre with wire, or very strong twine or yarn

Cut all the loops at theend of the cardboard circle and then pull it out of the ring

you can make pom poms out of any type of yarn, twine or even ribbon just experiment and have fun!

to fluff out your pom use loosely spun yarn such as charisma by loops and threads and use a fine tooth comb to brush it out,
