Time to trim! I basically just kept turning and trimming until I got a round shape with each pom pom. You can also rub them together between your palms to make them a bit fuzzier. (Pretend your rubbing your hands together to warm them with a pom pom between.)
Let’s get to gluing!
I think I made Pom Pom’s for a week! Actually it was enjoyable, I have RA so my hands got tired, but I’d wear my arthritis gloves and roll away while sitting on the sofa. I’d actually like to learn to knit after this, good way to pass the time! A good tip is do all your trimming near a garbage can, it got really messy, really quickly!
I digress, back to making the wreath. Since, I wanted around 2 rows of Pom poms to cover all of the grapevine wreath, I ended making more. To get a good layout, I laid all the Pom poms out and on the wreath to determine where I’d glue, then I started gluing. Pretty excited I didn’t lose any fingerprints to the hot glue gun this time! (wink). After I glued all the Pom Poms on, I added the tassel at the bottom. (Post coming soon on making cute tassels, loving them right now!). All that’s left now is to hang it on your front door. I absolutely love the fun texture it brings to our midwinter porch!
Happy Mid week, like I said I plan to have a post coming soon on the cute tassels, as well a a big one on our 1 year old kitchen. In the meantime, here’s a fun post on a Diy Chalkboard.
