Rah Rah Sis Boom Bah ~ Wait, Wrong Kind of Pom Poms!

    Every now and then I have to remind y’all just how big of a goofball I really am.

    That’s my very silly intro into my post about a Pom Pom Wreath.  Seriously.  Feel free to roll your eyes at me.  You know you want to.

    We have a lot of doors in our house, and while the front door gets the “Big Mama” wreath, some of the other doors sometimes need a little love, too.  So I came up with a happy little wreath for one of our back doors for Valentine’s Day.

    Are you ready for the world’s easiest tutorial?

    Here are your supplies:

    glue gun & a lot of glue sticks

    flat wreath form

    pom poms of various colors and sizes

    length of coordinating ribbon

    This is probably a good place to stop and discuss my slightly abnormal and unhealthy relationship with my label maker.  While I haven’t named it like my glue gun, it should say a lot about me that I have given the item it’s own designated shelf in my craft room.  And labeled it.

    OK, now to the directions.  Are you sure you’re ready for this?

    Glue the pom poms all over the wreath form!  When you’ve covered the top, add a layer to both the outer edge and the inner edge to give it a little more “oomph”  {without the last layers on the edges, it looked a little wimpy}.  Then simply slip your ribbon through the wreath, tie a bow and hang!

    Look how soft and cozy!

    Very cute! I like an easy project like this one that comes together pretty quickly and isn’t too expensive to make. A St. Patrick’s Day version would be cute, too.

    I’m visiting from Amanda’s party.

  8. I LOVE it!!! And as a former cheerleader and cheerleading coach, I can say that I love both kinds of pom poms. ;) I like that you chose coordinating colors…using the big box of them from the craft store in all those crazy colors might have been too much. Thanks so much for linking up to my party! I hope you’ll stop by Serenity Now again soon. :)

  9. How fun!!!! This wreath would make me smile as I walked up to the door every day. :D I love your blog! So fun!!!! Thanks for the easy tutorial. I am going to bookmark this one for a project with the kids later this year! :D
