I really wanted to make something out of pom poms for the babies' birthday and found a few pom pom wreaths I liked on Pinterest. Obviously I wanted to make mine in rainbow colours so bought a few brightly coloured wools and got to work with my new pom pom making gadgets (Pompom Maker Kit)!
|Mummy - can touch these?!?|
Before sticking any on though, I decided to wrap the wreath with the blue wool and I'm so glad I did. Although it took about and hour and a half, while watching The Big Bang Theory, it meant I didn't have to worry about any white areas showing through.
I was really pleased with the final result. I stuck on a number one I cut out of a shoe box and wrapped with the same fabric I used to add 1s to their white tops.
I plan to change this for a 2 next year! ;) By which time I'm also hoping to have our new blue front door!
I love it so much and enjoyed making it so I plan to make a white one for Christmas (like snowballs) using various types of white wool and stick on some snowflake decorations I have. That one will definitely look better on the dark blue door. I might not get it finished for this year anyway!
