Spring Pom-Pom Wreath {handmade wares}


Welcome to my new followers! So happy to have you here and I hope you enjoy following along on my journey!

I loved my peppermint wreath so much that I decided to make one for the spring and summer using my favorite bright colors.

This one is smaller because I'm pretty sure the peppermint one has over 300 pom-poms on it. I did not want to invest that much time into this one! This one has about 90. Drastically less time:) And more sanity.

The coral, yellow, blue, and green look great together and show up nicely from the road.

To make one for yourself: make about 90 - 100 pom-poms with extra string on each end. Simply tie the pom-poms around a Styrofoam wreath in whatever pattern suites you. Hang with ribbon. You're done!

Very cute! I love your peppermint wreath too! How much did it cost you to make the new spring colored one? can you share a tutorial link on how you made the pom-poms? I have never seen them made with yarn. I was going to make a rose wreath with crape paper for spring.

I am so in love with this wreath! I currently have a balloon wreath on my door, but I'm thinking this might be my new summer wreath! Can you tell me what size the wreath form was that you bought and how much yarn you had to buy for it?
I featured this on my friday favorites!
