Caroline’s pom pom Christmas wreath tutorial
Caroline‘s pom pom Christmas wreath is inspired by a project in Mollie Makes. It’s such a fun project to do with the family, because kids will love making pom poms and choosing decorations for the wreath while you can wield the glue gun!
*1 polystyrene loop
*Multipom pom pom maker
*2 balls Rico Essentials Soft Merino Aran in Grey (for background)
*1 ball each Rico Essentials Merino DK in Red, Green, Ivory and Deep Blue
*Hot glue gun and about 8 refills
Optional decorations I used:
Prepare your wreath
Prepare your wreath by wrapping your wreath loop with yarn. You’ll need approximately two 50g balls. Save about a metre to use for hanging. Secure with a knot. String a piece of yarn or baker’s twine with jingle bells and wrap it around your wreath, making sure the bells are facing front and are evenly spaced.
Using the Multipom
Create about 12-15 pom poms in various sizes using your four colours of yarn. I used ake your pom-pom big or small, you can choose your size once you start trimming them.
Start decorating: I use my bit from my craft studio from 2016. Some empty wooden bobbins, a couple of binding clips, a couple of wooden 2 elf (tree ornaments) and 4 pine cones.
Loosely wrap yarn around the Multipom about 80 times. Cut 30cm lengths of yarn and tie them in evenly spaced knots around your wrapped yarn.
Cut in between each knot.
Trim and fluff your pom poms.
Make as many as you want!
Decorating your wreath
Tie your pom poms to the background yarn, or glue with a hot glue gun. Gather them in bunches around your wreath.
Continue to decorate as you wish! Using your hot glue gun, glue on other bits around your wreath. I used buttons, wooden bobbins and pinecones.
To display, tie a piece of yarn or cord around the top of the loop and hang it from a medium sized command hook.
