This wreath is very simple and in expensive to make, not to mention so FUN! You can make the wreath with or without the greenery behind it. I happen to have found 5 small greenery wreaths at the local thrift store for $1.00 each and couldn't pass them up!
Supplies you will need:
This pic shows a hanger, I was going to shape the hanger to a circle but the pom poms did not stay in place when I tied them to the hanger so I though a wreath would work best.
I didn't use wool yarn because I thought it was too thick, but did use a thicker yarn than the regular yarn that is thin like string. I think it works best and makes the pom poms more fluffy. You can get yarn at any craft store, I got mine at Joann's Fabric because they always have coupons on their website for 40% off any one item, so I never leave home without my coupon in hand!! (Michael's have the same coupons on their website too. Both stores take competitors coupons too.)
Cut a piece of cardboard 4" long. You will wrap your yarn around the cardboard about 30 times.
Slide the yarn off the cardboard. Cut a longer string and place the yarn on top of the string in the center of the yarn and tie in a knot so it looks like this:
Cut the loops so it looks like this. You will have to trim the ends of the strings to make it even all the way around. The easiest way to do this is to lay the pom pom flat so you can see all the strings that are uneven. Cut the ends so it forms a nice circle. Leave the long string long because that is what you will use to tie the pom pom to the wreath.
Now take the long string and tie the pom pom to the wreath and add a pretty bow.
We got about an inch of snow today here in Texas!
