Pom Pom Wreath & Triangle Garland


When Stephanie from the Cleveland Flea called last month and asked if I wanted to work with them and Pat Catan's on creating some modern holiday DIY projects for the holidays, my brain yelled...

A wreath!

A colorful wreath!

A colorful wreath made of POM POMS!

What’s so great about this project is that it only requires three things: yarn, a wreath form and scissors. I highly recommend using a pair of quality, sharp scissors if you want to avoid hand cramps and blisters. 

Yarn from Pat Catan's: Lion Brand Montpelier Peacock, Red Heart Mixology Jade, Red Heart Grande Wintergreen. 
16" Wire Wreath Form from Pat Catan's. 

  1. Wrap yarn around four of your fingers. The number of times you wrap will depend on the thickness of your yarn and how big of a pom pom you’re trying to make. For these I wrapped approx. 45 times.
  1. Remove the wrapped yarn bundle from your fingers.
  1. Cut a piece of yarn approx. 4” long and place it underneath the wrapped yarn bundle.
  1. Tie the piece of yarn around the middle of the wrapped yarn bundle. Tie as tightly as possible.
  1. Cut the loops on both sides of the yarn bundle. Do not cut the strands from the piece of yarn you tied around the bundle. You’ll use these strands to tie the pom pom to the wire wreath frame.
  1. Trim the yarn bundle to desired length.
  1. Review and decide if you want to make the pom pom smaller/tighter by cutting off more yarn from the bundle.
  1. Marvel at your cute little pom. Then make 22 more! 


To make a pom pom, follow these 8 steps (picture diagram below):



I tried, but I just couldn’t resist adding a splash of hot pink! I hung the wreath atop my thrifted chalkboard, added some copper-colored garland, and stenciled on a holiday message. 




This triangle garland was made using Pat Catan's copper glitter scrapbook paper and their EK Tools large triangle punch. I simply hot glued them to a piece of bright pink yarn. 



I love that this color palette can easily transition from Thanksgiving, to Channukah, to Christmas, to Valentine's Day. 

I'm all about efficiency! 


And that's it. Colorful, fun and easy! 

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your friends and family.
