It’s like time freezes for a minute when my Anthropologie Magazine arrives in the mail. This month, I immediately was overtaken with a huge crush on the Tufted Wool Wreath…it’s always something! After a long time staring…I thought…I’ll give it a try!
I had this yarn with a ton of texture on hand. It’s a cream color and came from a craft store. Using a wreath form that I had in my craft closet, I began wrapping the yarn around the wreath until the white was completely covered. I used a bit of glue from my hot glue gun at the beginning and end of the wrapping process to secure the yarn. The texture of this yarn blended perfectly…it was nearly impossible to decipher one row from the next.
Then using a serving fork, I began making pom poms out of the same yarn. Wrapping the yarn around the fork 20-30 times and then removing the grouping from the fork I used another 4-5 inch piece of the yarn to secure the center with a knot. Once tied, I used my scissors to cut the loops and fluff the pom pom.
I made a little video for you – describing the process. (Sneak peek at my totally unfinished Christmas Tree, too).
My fluffy pom pom balls! (you’ll need quite a few of the pom poms)
I used a hot glue gun to adhere three rows of the pom poms around my yarn wrapped wreath form.
The thick wool is perfect for wintertime…although it may be perfect in Spring, too. I think this is a wreath I’ll be loving for a really long time. UPDATE: Stud started copying me so I grabbed my camera and uploaded his take to You Tube…Hilarious!
