Easy Valentine’s Pom Pom Wreath

The flu is slowly leaving our house and I had a second this week to make a fun Valentine’s craft which was SUPER easy, fast, and adorable.

It’s a valentine’s pom pom wreath!  Isn’t it so cute?  It’s so fluffy I wanna die! <–name that quote!  Seems like most wreaths take a really long time to make–whether you’re wrapping it in yarn or tying on strips of fabric or rolling a billion little paper flowers.  Wreaths definitely are a labor of love.  But this one actually only took me about ten minutes and I’m seriously in love with it.  It makes me so happy to walk by every day.  Kinda reminds me of cotton candy too.  :)

It’s also pretty budget-friendly.  The heart wreath foam was about $3 and the packs of poms were $1 each (I bought 12 packs).  So the total cost was $15 and I used hot glue I had on hand.

This is like Wreaths for Dummies.  Because I don’t even really need to give you instructions but here is what I did with a few pictures to demonstrate.

List of Supplies:

  • Heart Shaped Wreath Form (Hobby Lobby, $3)
  • 12 bags of poms–6 large, 6 small
  • Hot Glue

First, I put some hot glue down on the form.  Then I alternated between large poms and small poms.  I covered the entire top of the heart.  Then I moved on and did the outer edge and the inner edge.  I didn’t put any on the back.  And that’s it!  I just tied a ribbon around it to hang it.

Sometimes it felt like the poms weren’t securely attached but that’s not really the case–they are just weird that way.  Everything is secured on with the glue. I liked using the two sizes of poms–that was the effect I wanted.  Don’t be afraid of using too many, it just makes it more fluffy.  But I wouldn’t skimp–the packs are only $1 each so really just go for it and get another pack.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

  15. Perfect! I absolutely love it! Did you find the pom poms at Hobby Lobby as well? Or Dollar Tree?

    • Heidi @ Honeybear Lane says:

      Yes, at Hobby Lobby in small bags.

      • I went to the Hobby Lobby website and entered pink cotton balls and nothing comes up from search. Is there a different name they are called? I love your wreath and want to make one. I tried looking last week and gave up but never could get it out of my mind so I’m on the hunt again. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  23. Hi! What size of foam heart did you use from Hobby Lobby?
    The 9″ x 1″ Styrofoam Extruded Open Heart?
    or the 12″ x 1 1/8″ Styrofoam Extruded Open Heart…Thanks!!!

    • Heidi @ Honeybear Lane says:

      I am not sure…I think it was just the rounded one and the 9″ maybe? I think either one would be cute though!

  24. They look so much like cotton balls, but they’re pom poms, right? How do you get them so soft looking like that? Beautiful!!

  1. […] I've talked before about my wreath stalking tendencies. I particularly love atypical wreaths. The kinds of door decor that makes you pause and go "oooooh." And that's exactly what happened when I saw Heidi from Honeybear Lane's fluffy Valentine's Day wreath. Heidi says she bought 12 packages of pom-poms to make her wreath but it appears her packages contained fewer poms than the large bags at the dollar store. If you want to do an all pink wreath, you may need extra packages, but if you like mixed colors, you could probably buy just 3 bags of dollar store poms to make one wreath. If anyone makes one, please let us know how many bags you used!  [how to make a pom pom heart wreath] […]

  8. […] Heidi of Honey bear Lane has the most adorable little pom-pom valentine wreath for us to make.  She has all the pictures and tutorial showing you how to make this sweet wreath. Heidi bought a Styrofoam heart form and several different size bags of pom-poms large and small.  Heidi thinks it looks like cotton candy and it does it’s so pretty in any little girl would go crazy over this hanging in her room or giving to a special friend on Valentine’s Day. Because she uses a hot glue gun you would have to consider the age of the child that could make this wreath without burning themselves. I want to thank Heidi for sharing this super easy and fast adorable wreath that you can make. She says it actually only took her about ten minutes! TUTORIAL HERE! […]
