Who doesn’t love a Pom Pom DIY? I thought it would be fun to make a Pom Pom love heart wreath for Valentine’s day. I picked up a love heart wire wreath last year and it was sitting in my craft stash. I stumbled across it when I was recently clearing out my craft room and I decided to use it. I love making Pom Poms but I hadn’t made any since I made my Pom Pom cushion DIY last year. I decided to make a fun love heart wreath using some chunky red wool. I also have a Youtube video where you can check out how I made my wreath.
What you will need
- Some wool, I found the chunky wool better for getting a fuller Pom Pom.
- A Pom Pom maker or you can make them the old school way like me.
- A wire heart-shaped wreath or you could also use cardboard.
- Some scissors to trim your Pom Poms.
- Your glue gun.
I started by making my Pom Poms. You can see how I made my Pom Poms in the video below. I still haven’t bought Pom Pom maker set, I keep meaning to buy them. I decided to make mine the old school way by making a cardboard template. I used two balls of wool for this Project. To give my Pom Poms the perfect round shape I gave them a trim with my fabric scissors. Giving them a trim makes them more fluffy and firm. Once I was happy with my Pom Poms I then placed them on my wreath to make sure I had made enough. I used my glue gun to stick the Pom Poms to the wire wreath. You could tie them onto the wire wreath but I found they moved around and fell when I tied them. Also, don’t worry if you can’t find a wire wreath as you could use some cardboard as your base. You could trace a love heart shape onto some cardboard and carefully cut the shape out and glue on your Pom Poms.
This is a really fun DIY and something you could make in an afternoon. It is also child-friendly once you take extra care when using the scissors to cut your wool. Do let me know if you give this DIY a try, you might also enjoy my Pom Pom cushion DIY which you can find here. So, the question is, who will you give your Pom Pom heart to this Valentine’s day?
