Easy DIY Pom Pom Wreath

Winter makes me think of snow and to celebrate winter, I wanted to make a winter wreath for our porch. Pom Poms from the craft store mimic snow and I used them to create an Easy DIY Pom Pom Wreath.

The pom pom wreath was easy to make and I was able to complete the process in about an hour.

How to Make a Pom Pom Wreath

Pom pom wreaths are traditionally made with handmade pom poms crafted from yarn. Instead of making pom poms from yarn, I used three different sizes of pom poms from the craft store.

Materials

Instructions

Turn on a tv show, heat up your glue gun, and get started!

Glue the three sizes of pom poms to the wreath form alternating the placement of each size. It’s only necessary to glue the pom poms to the front side of the wreath unless you plan to hang it on a mirror or glass door.

For a hanger, I inserted a floral greening pin into the back of the wreath.

Another method would be to make a hanger with wire and attach it to the floral pin. Push the floral pin into the styrofoam to hold the hanger in place.

I loved how this wreath turned out but in retrospect, I wish that I had made it using a bigger wreath form.

  1. So very cute and a lovely change from typical greenery! Already being sick of winter here in Maine (another storm has canceled church for the second week in a row), I automatically thought of a (felt?) pastel rabbit facing away with another pom pom for a tail; it would extend that wreathe’s season for a bit!

    1. That is such a good idea, Kathy! I am going to try to craft a rabbit and see if I can make it work. Thank you!
