Get your boho on with this colorful pom wreath!
Today’s DIY wreath project is from Rachel Jacks of the Curbly Blog. The beauty of a wreath like this is that you can really make it your own. Choose colors that best fit the style you're going for and even play around with various sizes of poms. Have leftover yarn that you’ve been waiting to use? Now is the perfect time!
Check out the step-by-step instructions below.
Step one is the longest step! It can take a while, so turn on Netflix and have a relaxing night of pom-making!
Make lots of poms, I mean ALL the poms! I’m talking way more than you think you’re going to need. The exact number will depend on the size of your poms and wreath, and how full you want it to be. This 16 inch wreath had about 56 poms. You can purchase a pom maker or simply create the poms by wrapping the yarn around your finger or a fork, tying, and cutting! Check out this resource on various way to make poms.
Feel free to play around with different color combos + sizes, this wreath is all about making it your own!
TIP: Tie off the yarn with fishing line to make the poms tighter.
Wrap the wreath form with a layer of yarn. Knot the yarn tightly, and tuck in the ends.
Attach the poms to the yarn on the wreath form with hot glue. To get an idea of how you'll want to arrange them, it helps to lay out as many as you can on the wreath before you glue them down. Then watch your beautiful piece of work come to life!
