Yarn Wreath

Level: Easy

What You Need

Yarns of various weight and fiber content Scissors Wire wreath frame4″ pom-pom maker Scrap ribbon


1. Wrap Your Yarn


Hold together a few yarns of different weight and wrap them around your pom-pom maker 50-60 times. We used bulky yarn and worsted weight yarn for this first pom-pom, but if you’re using lighter weight yarns you’ll want to hold more than two strands together.

2. Remove the Yarn


Cut the yarn, leaving a tail about 8″ long. Carefully slide the yarn off whatever pom-pom maker you’re using.

3. Make a Pom-Pom


Tie the yarn tightly around the wrapped yarn. IMG_3025

Use scissors to cut the loops and create the pom-pom’s fringe. Shape it by trimming any wild pieces, but make sure to leave the long tails you used for tying intact.

4. Tie to the Frame

Tie the pom-pom onto the wire wreath frame using the long yarn tails. You want it to be tightly tied, but loose enough so you can slide them around and adjust as you add more.

Pro Tip: If you’re using a wooden frame, use hot glue to secure your pom-poms.

5. Repeat

Repeat steps 1-4, creating enough pom-poms to fully cover your frame.

6. Hang It Up

When you’ve made and tied all your pom-poms to your wreath, you’re ready to hang it up. We looped ribbon around the wire frame for the hanger, but you can use any method you like best.
