HERE’S WHAT YOU’LL NEED TO MAKE a heart POM POM wreath

Why use a pom pom maker?

If you have ever made pom poms before using a fork or a piece of cardboard you realize that they can be kind of a pain to make. A pom pom maker is a game changer. Not only can you make pom poms faster but it’s easier for kids to make pom poms.

STEP 1: WRAP YARN AROUND AN ARM

Your pom pom maker has two arms. Extend on arm out and start wrapping your yarn around it. Starting on the side that is furthest from the center. Now I like my pom poms to be full so I wrap once and start to wrap the arms for the second time coming back to where you began. Close the arm into the center.

STEP 2: TRANSITION 

Now extend your second arm of the pom pom maker. Taking the same piece of yarn cross over to the second arm and begin wrapping in the same direction as before.

Once you have finished your second row close the arm into the center. Cut the excess yarn. 

Tip at this time DO NOT open the pom pom maker.

STEP 3: CUT POM POMS

Using your small sharp scissors cut along the center line of the side of the pom pom maker. Do this on both sides until you are just left with fringe.

STEP 4: TIE AND TRIM

Cut a piece of yarn about 6-8 inches long. Wrap it around the circle tying it tight not once but twice.

Make sure to trim around the yarn to make a perfect pom pom. If you are going to make a pom pom wreath make sure to leave the yarn you used to tie the pom pom in tact.

ATTACH POM POMS TO WREATH FORM

When you make the pom poms you leave a bit of string from tying the yarn together. Use this string to tie your pom pom on to the wire wreath form. When your pom poms are in position and tied to the wire form tie your pom poms to each other to secure their place on the wreath.

HANG WREATH

Using an extra piece of yarn tie a loop for hanging on the wreath form. Hang your wreath from your front door or blank wall in your house. This wreath can be made with many variations of color for any season or holiday.
