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!
