Pin it do it - Pom pom wreath by Bex



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?!?

These gadgets are so easy to use and SO quick!  I made lots of different sizes and colours (can you guess how many?) and stuck them all on to the 35cm Half Rounded Polystyrene Wreath with hot glue.  I've been using my hot glue gun a lot lately - it's fab!  (I have the Dremel 930 Glue Gun Hobby 7mm - Dual Temp.)


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!

These are amazing. What pompom maker do you have? I've seen a few about but am keen to make it a speedy process. Totally cribbing this idea for an upcoming first birthday...

Hi Emily, I bought these ones as they're SO much cheaper than the others and they were really easy to use. (They took a long time to arrive though as came from China and the instructions are a bit dodgy due to translation I think but they're good enough!) http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00HIAU8S4/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1634&creative=19450&creativeASIN=B00HIAU8S4&linkCode=as2&tag=theolidra0d-21
