Whimsical and Festive DIY Pom Pom Wreath

So, I made a list of projects I wanted to do before Christmas, and they ranged from more practical (updating our mailing list for Christmas cards, sewing the living room curtains in time for our Christmas party) to the more recreational. I wanted to start with the practical, but I was so distracted by the idea of making a pom pom wreath that I just had to do it!

Usually, pom poms remind me of summer camp rather than grown-up holiday decor, but I have to say I changed my mind when I saw Danielle Thompson’s gorgeous Christmas wreath. This wreath is so whimsical, cheerful, and absolutely beautiful!

I like the way both of these lovely wreaths mix pom-poms with other types of flowers and decorations to add more interest and dimension. As you know, Danielle’s colors are also my inspiration for this Christmas: red, pink, and turquoise.

To make my wreath, I started with an 11″ diameter cardboard backing, which I wrapped in yarn.

My wreath is a mix of

  • Regular pom poms in different sizes. (I definitely recommend using a pom pom maker, which speeds up the process a lot!)
  • Small store-bought pom poms
  • flowers made with felt circles (instructions here)
  • flowers made by rolling a strip of felt (instructions here)
  • And the final touch: something shiny to make it feel festive. I had a little glitter eyelash yarn leftover from making Christmas trees, and then I found a glittery gift topper which came as part of a set I got years ago #hoardingpays
