I have wanted to make one of these Pom wreaths ever since I saw people making them last Christmas! Ha! Better late than never right?! Apparently there is a Pom Maker you can buy at the craft store but I found this easy and fast way to make the poms effective and cheaper!
~4 Bundles of a thick (large loop) yarn
~Hot Glue Gun
~Ribbon (optional to hang)
To begin making your poms wrap the yarn around your hand about 35-40 times. For most of mine I did 37 wraps. Cut it free from the
Slide the wrapped yarn off your hand and place on top of a 8-9 " long piece of yarn.
Tie together the two end pieces.
Slide your scissors into the looped yarn on each side and cut. Fluff out the pom and cut any uneven pieces.
There is your pom pom!
I dabbed a bit of hot glue and held it on to my straw wreath for about 10 seconds. You will make three rows of Poms on your wreath. An inside row, a top row and the outer row. I left my back of the wreath bare so it would lay flat on the wall.
It's amazing how it fluffs out and looks so soft and poufy! Fast, easy, cute and inexpensive!
