This Pom Pom Snowflake Wreath was one of those projects. You know the ones where you get the idea, buy the supplies (pretty cheap!) and are feeling good.  And then you start working and it ends up taking, ahem, a little bit longer than you anticipated. And when I say a little bit longer, I mean, I felt like I was making pom poms for like a week. In reality it was only a couple hours but I think you know what I mean. But don’t let that deter you, it was an excellent excuse to sit quietly and watch netflix for a while which I don’t get to do nearly enough!

Anyway, back to the wreath. I went to the craft store and bought a 12 inch green floral foam wreath form (use a coupon!). I got the green foam because it was the cheapest, I’m sure white would work too. Or straw or twigs or whatever you can find.  I also got a large skein of the cheapest white acrylic yarn they sold (think generic Red Heart if you can even imagine!) and some tiny sparkly snowflake shapes. All total it was under $10. Don’t mind the other yarn I have shown, I was going to also use the silver sparkly yarn but in the end I didn’t like how it looked.

Step 1: Make a gazillion pom poms! Ok,not a gazillion. But I used up the entire skein. I made pom poms in two different sizes. Some people use pom pom makers but I just wind my yarn around a piece of stiff cardboard. You can also use a fork or even your hand! Pom poms are easy!  So anyway, wind your yarn somewhere between 30 – 50 times depending on how big the pom pom is and how fluffy you like them. Mine was about 2 inches and I wound it 35 times. For the bigger pom poms which I wound around four fingers of my hand, (not including my thumb) I wound it about 45-50 times.

Carefully slide the wound yarn off the cardboard and tie another piece of yarn as tightly as you can around the middle.

Using sharp scissors, cut through all the loops to “release” the pom pom.

Don’t panic, it will look kind of scraggly at first.

When you’ve made all your pom poms, it’s time to start attaching them. I used hot glue. If you’re using a foam wreath form, remember that some foam can’t handle hot glue and will melt. Definitely use a low temperature hot glue gun and if it’s still melting consider some other way to attach your pom poms.  For example, try tacky craft glue or straight pins through the center of the pom poms and into the foam!

I glued a couple pom poms to my wreath and then decided there was a chance that the light green foam would show through. So I very quickly painted on a quick layer of white craft paint. When that was dry (only a couple of minutes) I continued gluing, trying to evenly space the different sized pom poms around the wreath.

When I had completely covered the wreath, I placed the little sparkly snowflakes around the wreath and when I was happy with their placement, added a little hot glue the the backs of them.

  2. LOVE this! I’ve been looking for a white wreath so that the colour would match the room, but they’re so expensive in stores; and this is perfect!!!

  3. Just happened upon your pretty wreath while browsing Pinterest. Must say for something so simple it sure is Elegant looking

  4. I just found this while peeking around Pinterest. I LOVE this!! So easy and looks so good! I am DOING this for the holidays! Thanks for sharing!

    1. It’s holding up just great, this is a very sturdy wreath! Since I have so many handmade holiday wreaths, I have stored them two different ways. First I bought a “wreath” sized cardboard storage box from the container store. It’s a big square box about six inches tall. Then I nest the wreaths, smaller inside bigger and put tissue paper in the empty spaces between. That only works if your wreaths aren’t all the same size. This year I’m also trying storing them in a big plastic storage tub, heaviest on the bottom, lightest on top with crumpled tissue or bubble wrap between. Most of mine are pretty lightweight, often made of paper and cardboard so they seem to be doing ok. I think flat storage as described first is optimal though. Then nothing will get crushed. If I had to choose I’d pick a plastic storage container so there’s no chance of humidity or moisture damaging anything.
