DIY – Christmas Pompom Wreath

Slide1

I just can’t wait for Christmas! It is so exciting! And even more so with my babies all grown up (that is 2 and 4!) and ready to engage in all the joys that Christmas brings. I am waiting for Christmas. My craft definitely reflects that.

This is my take on the Christmas pompom wreath. Why did I chose these colours? Which wool did I use? The answer is simple: this is what I had. I did have some pink wool, too, but I fought hard against myself not to use it. Good call, I say!

I had to make 14 bigger pompoms, and 18 smaller pompoms (3 of them red).  I have another blog where you can find a tutorial on how to make a pompom. For a couple of them, I mixed two colours together – quite a cool outcome.

Another reason why I did this craft, is because my clothes dryer broke, just as in the picture below. So I ended up with this meter long wire, that was just to good to throw away. So I played with it, twisted it a little in my hands, and suddenly it hit me – Christmas wreath! Then I thought of something that I could stick on it, and pompoms seemed like an obvious choice.

In any case, make it and love it!
