How to Make a Pom Pom Wreath (Like Anthropologie)

Have you ever wanted to learn how to make a pom pom wreath? Last Christmas I saw an amazing pom pom wreath in Anthropologie. I loved it — but it was so expensive. I decided to try and see if I could make one myself!

Ever since the twins and I learnt to make pom poms with a pom pom maker at Camp Bestival, we’ve made loads of pom poms. They’re a great way of prettying up a plain blanket or basket.

Making the pom poms is so easy. Bertie was literally churning them out! The trickiest thing about this make, is where to place them on the polystyrene ring.

Just like the one from Anthropologie!

How to Make a Pom Pom Wreath

You will need:

Wool — I used a pack of various colours
Pom pom makers of varying sizes (this is optional, you can make them the old fashioned way if you prefer)
A polystyrene ring — I used the same kind as for my faux flower wreath
Hot glue-gun and glue sticks

Method:

  1. Decide what colours and sizes to make your pom poms. You could make them all a uniform size and colour — or have a mixture like we have here.
