Three cheers for this Valentine’s Day Pompom Wreath

Patty Schaffer is back today with more Valentine’s Day décor – a Valentine’s Day Pompom Wreath. I’ve made pompoms before and they’re an easy DIY, plus, they’re so much prettier than the packaged pompoms in stores. There’s no comparison, really. The pompoms aren’t the only reason I love Patty’s wreath – check out her enchanting embellishments, too. Next time you sit down to your favorite TV show, bring along your yarn and get started on this Pompom Wreath.

Aren’t these sweet? Patty used purchased embellishments for a fast finish to the wreath.

Love this aqua stag -- he's the perfect accent on a pink, pompom wreath. CraftsnCoffee.com.

The stag is the perfect accent, don’t you think? I love the pop of aqua on the wreath.

To make a Valentine’s Day Pompom Wreath, you’ll need:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam: 6” wreath
  • Scraps of fabric or felt (to wrap the wreath)
  • Yarn in three different colors and finishes (Patty used light pink, dark pink, and a sparkling pink)
  • Glittered cardboard hearts (Patty’s are from Making Memories)
  • Valentine stamp sticker (Patty’s is from Martha Stewart)
  • Deer figurine
  • Acrylic craft paint in turquoise
  • Low temp glue gun
  • Tools needed: Scissors; paintbrush

To make a Valentine’s Day Pompom Wreath:

1. Cut the fabric or felt into 1-1/2” wide strips, and wrap around the wreath. Secure the ends with pins.

2. Make pompoms from a variety of yarn. Patty’s wreath had 30 pompoms: 11 light pink; 10 dark pink; and nine sparkly pink.

Patty graciously supplied her template for making the pompoms. To use the template:

  • Cut two templates from chipboard or a heavy plastic.
  • Sandwich a length of yarn between the templates; it should be long enough that the ends extend beyond the template.
  • Wrap the yarn around and around the template, the fuller the better.
  • Slide scissors between the templates and carefully snip the yarn along the outside edge.
  • Pull up and tie tightly the length of yarn that was sandwiched between the templates, forming your pompom.
  • Remove templates.
  • Trim any uneven lengths.

3. Glue the pompoms to the wreath, covering it completely.

Cute, and made for each other. DIY Valentine's Day Pompom Wreath on CraftsnCoffee.com.

These two are made for each other.

4. Glue glittered cardboard hearts at about the 5:00 position on the wreath. Add the Valentine stamp sticker.

5. Paint the deer turquoise and let dry. Glue the deer to the inside curve of the wreath.

6. Knot together the ends of a 6” length of yarn. Pin and glue to the back of the wreath for a hanger.

Have you noticed the new headers here on Crafts ‘n Coffee? Earlier in January I featured a new header with snowmen, and today I’m using our Valentine’s Day header. What do you think?  We wrapped up 2014 with a photo shoot to create new images for the old header here on Crafts ‘n Coffee. I hope to share a little behind-the-scenes look at our photo shoot sometime soon.

Happy crafting.

Sharon

    Love the pompom wreath! I am partial to gold or silver, so would repaint the deer one of those two. I’m good with spray paint. LOL! The paper roses wreath is also pretty. Roses are my favorite. Do you think this one would last through a season or two? I worry about the paper being too delicate. On the other hand, books last forever, so maybe it isn’t that fragile. Thank you for sharing. I love these crafts!

      Hi Angie, I think your plans for the deer are great — absolutely paint him another color. The paper roses are sturdier than you think and it would definitely last a few years inside the house (not outside!). Patty has more pretty Valentine’s Day crafts to share later this week — wait till you see what she’s made! Thanks for stopping in. Sharon

    Wow. Great wreaths. Now to find the time to make one. Gotta love the pompoms.

    • Sharon says:

      Thanks, Lisa. I love those pompoms, too. I never realized how much prettier handmade pompoms are vs. those in the store. What else could you do with these? A garland, for sure. Any other ideas? Sharon
