How to Make a Pom Pom Wreath
The pom pom trend is continuing to grow, and I for one couldn’t be happier, there’s nothing that can’t be adorned or covered in a beautiful fluffy pom!
I decided to make this super bright and quirky pom pom wreath. I’ve used a 350 millimetre polystyrene ring base to attach my poms to, but you could use whatever size you like, making it perfect for both grown up bedroom doors as well as little ones. . .
- Choose the colour combination of Pompoms you would like to cover your wreath. I have used a mixture of brightly coloured wools and yarns of varying thicknesses.
- Start to make your poms using the Clover Pompom maker. I have used all four of the makers to give the wreath a variety of different sized poms. I have also mixed different colours of yarn/wool used in single poms to create unique colour combinations.
- Cover the polystyrene balls in a layer of PVA glue and then cover in glitter. I used a kebab skewer inserted into the polystyrene ball so I could cover the entire ball in one go, however you could do it in two stages. Leave to dry
- Once the entire polystyrene ball is covered in glitter and dry, cover in a light layer of hairspray to fix the glitter in place.
- Use a glue gun to stick the poms firmly to the polystyrene wreath. I started by sticking the largest poms and polystyrene balls down first and then arranging the smaller poms and polystyrene balls around them.
Top Tip! To fill in smaller gaps on the wreath you could use ready-made poms for quickness.
If you wanted to stick to just making pom poms to cover your wreath base like I’ve done on the wreath below, all you need to do is make a few extra poms to attach. Alternatively you could use ready-made poms to fill in any small gaps.
Or opt for a different shape such as a heart, which is great for valentine’s day, mother’s day or weddings.
Top Tip! When making your poms why not use two different wool/yarn colours for a multi-coloured pom? They look great against the single colour poms!
Why not try creating some festive shapes out of your pom poms, such as the Christmas tree and Christmas puddings shown in the above tutorial from the Hobbycraft blog!
