I was inspired by this wreath over at Did Someone Say Party.
She has an Indigo and Gray Version AND a very beautiful Valentine's Day version.
Here is my Fall version
I started with a 12 inch Straw Wreath.
I wrapped the wreath in felt and then began creating the Pom Poms.
I used this Pom Pom creator by Clover
I found mine at Joann's. Here is a link to Joann Fabric and Craft Stores.
You can also purchase it here.
After making the pom-poms, I had to find a way to attach them to the wreath, since I didn't leave a long string on each one like the tutorial said to. I just got too excited making them into perfect little balls and forgot to leave a long strand. Soooooooo, after a few trial and error sessions, I came up with a plan. I put hot glue where I wanted the pom-pom, but the glue wasn't really enough to hold the weight of the pom pom. So, I then used 3 inch floral pins to stick through the middle of the pom pom while the glue was still hot. This seems to have done the trick, because the pom-poms are now firmly in place.
It's hard to tell from the photograph, but this wreath is so full and plush, I just LOVE it. I hope someone at the craft show does too. Actually, I put one in my Etsy Store also, if anyone is interested.
