Pom Pom Wreath

When I wrote this post about my obsession with pom poms, I was seriously knee deep into them. Ask anyone who came near this place. Totally fun...
So when my friend pointed me to this wreath on Pinterest, I knew I had to drag out my yarn once again!!  I picked up a 10" styro wreath at the Dollar Store, and got busy...

I tied 29 green poms (I used two sizes and 2 colors of green for this project) to the ring.  Then I went in and glued mini red poms (purchase at a local craft store) here and there...
Totally random, and I love it.  Total crafting time:  3 hours.

Here is my finished version.  I'm opting to not add a bow.

I hope you make a ton of these babies, too!  I shouldn't be alone in my addiction--you know you want to join me...

Enjoy your weekend!

Ellen--You can find the pom pom contraption at JoAnn's and most craft stores. Many people make them using cardboard. I put the link in bold at the top of the post--just click on it to see the pom pom garland and how I made them. Hope that helps! :) Trish

I totally and completely promised myself I would make a Pom Pom banner for the kids' birthdays after I saw that post!! Haven't gotten to it yet, but I will!! You and I must be similar in age because pom poms were all the rage when I was a kid!
