Pom Pom Wreath

So I'm really late to the party.

The Pom Pom Party.

Back when I first started blogging - almost 2 years ago - Anthropologie started selling a pom pom wreath. 

It was pretty wonderful.

So wonderful that people were making "Anthro Inspired Pom Pom Wreaths" all over blogland.



My friend Linda made one. 

Hers has a bow on it.

I love the yarn she used.


But I didn't make one then.

No not me. 

I was busy making pine cone Christmas trees.

And snowballs.

But I never forgot about those pom pom wreaths.

I rather pined for one.


So I bought some yarn.

Four kinds.


And I combined them and rolled them all up into one big ball.


 And made some pom poms.

I told Mr. Quirky I was making pom poms. 

He said POM POMS??? Like cheerleaders use.

I said "NO SILLY!" I'm making wreath pom poms.

I think he thinks I'm crazy.



Then I cut a circle out of cardboard and wrapped it in yarn.

It wasn't fun.

But I stayed strong.



Then I tied them to the cardboard ring that I covered with yarn.

And trimmed them up.

My pom poms were a little uneven.

I was ashamed.

I mean I can't even make an even pom pom.

Trimming them made a very big mess.



I love my pom pom wreath.

It's soft and fluffy.

I want to sleep on it.

Now I'm part of the crowd.

The "have you made your Anthro inspired pom pom wreath?" club.

I'm so proud.


 Make something wonderful today!

I'm sweeping up pom pom fuzz.

You know, I really like those wreaths, but I have an unnatural aversion to making pompoms, which may have something to do with the fact that I was captain of the cheerleading squad in high school and had to make 40 of them for our saddle shoes.

Love your pom pom wreath. I've never made one but now I'm thinking about it. :)

The only pom poms I've made have been for my sock monkeys arms and legs. Your big fluffy pom poms bring back memories of making them for my ice skates in my youth. Fun wreath!

I like your wreath! It looks like big, fluffy snowballs. Good idea to combine different kind of yarn. I have never made a pom pom of any kind. Yours is lovely.

I must be totally out of the loop because this is the first pom pom wreath I have seen, but I love it and it really looks super soft and cudly.

I'm visiting from the Clever Chicks Blog Hop. This is super-cute! I bet my kids would enjoy making this with me!

That pom pom fuzz never goes away ... it's kinda like glitter ... and that faux snow ... and Christmas tree needles. :)

I love your soft and fluffy pom wreath. And thanks so much for linking up, my friend!!!
