Hey guys! Today I’m going to be sharing with you a DIY inspired by my favorite, Anthropologie. I spotted THIS WREATH a while back but couldn’t justify spending over $100 (or $90 on sale) on a pom pom wreath so I decided to figure out how to make one myself.
What You’ll Need:
2 big rolls of chunky yarn (about 600 m worth) or 1 big roll and 2 smaller rolls (I did 1 large in the white and 2 smaller rolls of different shades of gray) I suggest purchasing yarn at Hobby Lobby when it’s on sale, at Michael’s with a coupon, or Walmart!If you want it to look closer to the Anthro version, I suggest using a really really light gray colored yarn (or even an off white color!). The poms make the yarn look darker but I had already started and didn’t want to waste the material so I just went with it!
Wreath form, this can either be foam, wire, or even a branched one I used a wire one that I had found from Walmart for $2.77. I believe mine is 20″ but if you want it to look fluffier, use a smaller form.
Optional: bottle brush trees (I found these in the dollar section at Target)
What To Do:
Turn on your favorite Christmas movie, grab your pom pom makers or a fork and make about 50-60 pom poms. The more you make, the fuller it’ll look!
Wrap the wreath form in white fabric/felt. This just makes it less noticeable if you have any gaps in your poms when you glue them on. If you’re using a wire wreath form, it provides something for the poms to be glued onto.
Before glueing the poms on, I suggest mapping out the placement of the poms around the form first to give yourself a general idea of where you want them.
Once you’ve finished that, use the hot glue gun to attach the poms to the wreath form.
If you wish to add some bottle brush trees (or even a little house with some trees around it would be adorable too!), simply decide where you’d like to place them and attach them to the wreath or poms using the hot glue gun.
Add a bow and ta-da! All done!
Considering I was able to make this wreath for less than $30, I think that’s pretty darn awesome! This not only is this super pretty on the front door or in the home but it also would make a great gift. I can’t wait to see how yours turn out!
