Here is the inspiration from Dreamy Whites French Farmhouse Inspired Living. So gorgeous!
And here is how mine turned out.
I love it! Its so fluffy, I just wanna pet it! Looks just like a little lamb!
Here is the how to.
You will need:
A wreath form (or use my trick from the Ruffle Trees post to make a wreath form with foil)
Lots of fluffy yarn ( I bought 2, 160 yard bundles of yarn and went through one and a half)
Vintage red and white fabric for the bow
Plain white fabric to cover the wreath form
1. First you gotta make the yarn pom poms. Lots of them. I think I maybe made 50 or 60 of them to cover my wreath. You can spread them out a little bit more also if you want to use less. First start wrapping the yarn around 3 of your fingers. Wrap around about 25 times. Not too tight, not too loose.
2. Carefully slide off your fingers and tie a small piece of yarn around the middle of your bundle. Tie it as tight as you can. It should look sort of like a bow tie.
3. Now cut all of the little loops you just created. All of them. But don't worry if you miss one or two. It will now look like a pom pom.
4. Give your pom a little hair cut. Turning it around, trim off any pieces that are longer than the rest to make the pom spherical. And no need to be a perfectionist here. The imperfection of these little things is part of their charm! You might want to save some of the clippings for your decorating, as it looks just like snow!
See! It totally looks like snow. Now that you know how to make the pom poms. Keep going. I maybe used between 50 and 60 of them. I know. Its a lot. But its so worth it!
5. Heat up the hot glue gun and cover the wreath form with a long strip of white fabric.
6. Now start gluing on your poms poms. Lay the wreath flat on the counter as you do it so that it will lay flush against the wall when you hang it. You don't need to cover the back because 1. You're not going to see it and 2. Its white from the fabric. Keep going until the wreath is completely covered and fluffy.
7. Now cut a long strip of the red and white fabric and tie into a bow. Glue onto the wreath.
Now your wreath is ready to hang! I just used a piece of the white yarn. But you can use a wreath hanger, twine, ribbon, whatever.
How gorgeous is this!?
Ugh! I can't get over it. Its too cute! Hope everyone is having just as much fun decorating their homes for the holidays! Happy decorating!
