Crafted! Mini Pom Pom Wreath

Today’s wreath takes a little bit longer but is by no means more difficult.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Styrofoam wreath form
  • Butt load of pom poms in colors of your choice (For reference: a “butt load” is not a strict quantity you will find in craft stores. For this project, it is roughly equivalent to 10-12 bags of approx. 10mm pom poms consisting of about 30 pieces each)
  • Hot glue gun

I made this wreath last fall after my wedding. I’d spent a lot of the summer making paper flowers, and it’s hard to quit crafting cold turkey, so this was the project that helped me taper off in a healthy fashion. To assemble:

  1. Glue pom pom(s) to wreath
  2. Repeat

There’s not a lot else I can tell you. Except maybe to have some Netflix queued up while you do it, because there is a certain amount of tedium involved (totally worth it, of course).

Ah yes–there is actually one other thing I can tell you: the pom pom wreath can withstand a pretty major thunderstorm, though hopefully you will never have to discover this firsthand. Normally the porch protects my wreaths from the elements (which I why I feel okay using a lot of fabric-like materials), but I used this one on the greenhouse door last month to spruce up the yard for Justin’s backyard birthday party. It was mega cute.

Cute garden shed greenhouse. Backyard with tiki torches. Green door with gray house.
But then I forgot about it for several days, and Justin likewise did not bring it in because he thought I was “done with it.” (PS to the menfolk –you can’t automatically apply the same rules of disposal to wreaths and left-over take-out.) Anyhoo, it was a little soggy but generally no worse for the wear. The pom pom wreath lives to grace the door another day.
