christmas wreaths - pompom

Tuesday, 13 December 2011

I told you I was finished for this year, but I have festive wreath fever! Saw these lollipop red pompoms at Lincraft and couldn't resist their cherry pop of colour. Bought a wreath form and delighted in pushing these smooshy balls together with hot glue to create this fabulously fun wreath.

If you glue the larger balls around the form in random spots first, then add balls according to size, it will be quick and easy to fill in the gaps. You may also need to glue smaller pompoms on top of the teensiest gaps, as you don't want the white to show through.

You could also cover the wreath form with red ribbon first, if you want to avoid covering every teensy gap.

At first I dreamt of a thick glossy white ribbon for this one, but settled on this more whimsical pinstripe grosgrain.

What do you think?

Just wait til you see the next wreath! So cute!

Where do you get the styrofoam wreaths? Such inspiration!

Wreath forms from Spotlight or Lincraft - around $5 - $9 - not cheap! As my friend says, someone's making a lot of moula on styrofoam this Christmas.
