Easy DIY Pom Pom Wreath!: multi-colored wreath made of yarn pom poms on a front door for Christmas

Happy December! Today several of my blogger buddies and I are sharing our DIY Christmas wreaths. I know you’ll love their wreath ideas at the bottom of this post!

Right now, the little ladies and I are in the midst of a serious pom pom obsession. Like my living room is completely covered in little bits of yarn right now and when I’m finished with this post I’m going to have to dig us out. Last night the girls even set up a stand to sell pom poms in the dining room!

So it naturally followed that we needed a pom pom wreath for Christmas this year. This project is easy, but not necessarily quick. But the good news is, once you’ve got the process down, you can make poms while watching TV or listening to an audiobook. Or better yet, get the kids to make them! Let’s get started.

Remember that box of old yarn that’s been in your closet for 8 years? Get it out! We’re finally going to use it up!

here’s what you’ll need:

supplies to make a Christmas pom pom wreath- styrofoam wreath form, coored yarn skeins, pom pom makers in varieous sizes, and a hot glue gun

how to make a pom pom wreath

1. make your pom poms

Come check out this detailed tutorial on making pom poms! Then come back for the rest of the project!

I highly recommend these Clover pom pom makers! We’ve tried 3 different brands now, and they’re by far the sturdiest!

I wanted a bright, multi-colored, and textured wreath, so I made my poms in different sizes and colors.

One strategy I used was mixing white yarn into the colored pompoms. This creates the look of more shades (I believe the correct word is tints, but that sounds funny).

For example, I only really had one color of pink yarn, but I wanted to have more pinks, so I mixed the pink with red, and I mixed it with white.

Make yourself a nice BIG pile! Once you think you have enough, make more!

2. Glue the pom poms on the wreath form

Use the hot glue gun to attach the pompoms to the wreath form. I didn’t arrange them in any kind of pattern, but I did try to create balance with the distribution of the different colors, textures, and sizes of poms.

3. attach the yarn

I chose to hang my wreath with a simple piece of thick yarn. I applied a line of hot glue to both sides of the back of the wreath form, and set the yarn into them. Then I gave them at least fifteen minutes to harden, before hanging it up.
