Snowball Wreath

Snowball Pom Pom Wreath

Hey there, Oh My! Creative readers! It’s Alexis from Persia Lou back with a little holiday goodie for ya. This is my take on a pom-pom wreath, and since I live in the desert and don’t know much about real snow, I’m calling it my Snowball Wreath.

It looks snowy, right? Right? Sure it does.

If you want to make one for yourself, here’s what you will need:

  1. a wreath form
  2. store bought pom-poms (I used about 60 1 inch and 45 1.5 inch, but probably could have used a few more)
  3. bulky yarn for making your own pom-poms (I used two full skeins of yarn)
  4. white cotton fabric cut into strips
  5. ribbon for the bow
  6. hot glue
Start off by getting busy making pom-poms. I used pom-pom makers this time, but if you don’t have one, you can use this method that just uses your fingers (it really works just as well). Two skeins of bulky yarn got me about 20 big pom-poms.

When my pom-poms were all ready to go, I wrapped my wreath form with strips of cotton fabric so you wouldn’t see any straw peeking through any gaps.

Then I just took my glue gun and went to work. I found that it worked well to place the large pom-poms first and then go fill in the empty spaces with the smaller, store-bought pom-poms.

I finished the wreath off with a glittery gold bow because gold is kind of my thing right now.

Annnnd… Here she is! All done!

The plan was to put the wreath on my front door, but I really like how its working with some of my indoor decorations. Maybe I need another for the door!

  1. So cute Alexis- the Pom poems worked so well! Love the whole mantle scape!

    • Thanks, Krista! I’m still moving things around on my “mantel,” but I like the way it’s coming together. (And I like pom poems… haha!)

  2. That should be pom poms! Darn autocorrect :)

  3. Woooow. The entire vignette is stunning, Alexis.
    I love how you mixed the textures of cotton balls and pom poms. It looks like it’s made from a cloud! Adorable!!!
