Valentine's day Wreath made from yarn Pom-Poms. I have also added the easiest way to make a bunch of Pom-poms.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Making the Pom-Poms
- First start wrapping the yarn around 2 chair or table legs. This can be as far apart or close together as you want, I used 2 chairs side by side to give me more poms at a time.
- When you have a about a thick handful start to tie it off in sections, about 3 inch sections. Do this all the way around.
- Then cut down the middle of each one.
- Ta-Da! You have pom-poms. Lots and lots of pom-poms.
Step 2: Making Your Wreath Frame
If you choose to buy a heart shaped wreath then you can skip this part but if you are feeling frugal the continue to make the wreath base.
Take a wire hanger and straighten it out then take the end pieces and hook them together and bend it to form a heart shape.
Use foam pipe covers to cover the hanger.
Use 2 pieces of foam, start at the top and go around. When you put them on cut the top and bottom at a diagonal so they make a point and fit together. Tape where you need it to ensure it will hold up well.
Step 3: Putting It All Together
Now start to hot glue the poms on. I made 3 rows to make it full and to cover up the foam.
Trim the poms down where you meed to and you are done.
