How to Make a Pom-Pom Heart Wreath

Pom-poms. I just love them. From the aisles at the craft store that are filled with them to making my own, I can't get enough of them. I recall seeing many beautiful homemade pom-pom wreaths over the holidays, but very seldom have I seen one for Valentine's Day. So, I thought I'd remedy that with this Pom-Pom Heart Wreath.

It all started just after Christmas when my daughter and I went to Hobby Lobby to redeem her gift card. We happened by the clearance rack and saw a pile of pom-pom maker kits marked down like 90%. Now, if I would have been on top of my game, I would have snatched up every last one of them for all the tween crafters in our lives that will need birthday presents this year. But, alas, I was not thinking and we left the store with only one. Fortunately, that "one" was all we needed to get started on making pom-pom crafts. The yarn that came with the kit, while adorable in color, does not produce very good pom-poms. We found ourselves going back to HL to pick some different yarn for this project. The red and white Crafter's Secret yarn ended up being just perfect for this craft.

So, here is what you'll need to make your very own Pom-Pom-Heart Wreath: yarn in a couple of colors (we actually ended up adding in a light pink too), pom-pom maker, glue gun and heart-shaped cardboard form. For this, I simply drew a heart on construction paper, transferred it to a piece of cardboard, and cut it out.

You'll want to make up a bunch of large pom-poms. Our finished project has 16 large pom-poms (8 red, 8 white) and then we filled in with 8 more smaller light pink pom-poms.

Simply glue pom-poms onto cardboard form spacing out accordingly.

We glued all the red and white ones on first. It was then that we realized it looked a little bit too much like a candy cane. So, I made up some smaller light pink pom-poms to fill in and give it more of a Valentine's Day vibe.

I couldn't be happier with the end result. It's fun and festive. My daughter and I had a blast making up all the cute little pom-poms too.

We're starting to pull out a little bit of heart decor for February... not too much (we just got all of Christmas put away, right?) But, you know I'm the mother of someone who loves to celebrate every holiday, right?  We couldn't let this month go by without a touch of heart-shaped decor. Do you decorate for Valentine's Day?
