DIY: Fur Pom Pom Wreath

By Kate Riley November 7, 2016

This season I’m into faux fur everything. Throw blankets, pillows, and today a DIY wreath! I made this fun and furry wreath with faux fur pom poms that I gathered from two different sources. I started decorating early in the studio to welcome my stepdaughter when she returns home from Spain after Thanksgiving. (She is living in this space until the end of the year).

This wreath was a fun afternoon project and I love the different colors present. It’s really cute up close, it makes you want to reach out at pet it :)

To recreate it, the main supply you’ll need to round up are the faux fur pom poms. I found the smaller packages of gray and dark brown pom poms at Michaels and the larger brown, white, and natural versions here. In addition to the pom poms, you’ll need a 16” foam wreath, hot glue gun, and ribbon (also from Michaels).

Once you’ve gathered your supplies, all you need to do is tie your ribbon onto the foam wreath form, then start hot gluing the pom poms on piece by piece in a random pattern. It takes about 30 minutes to complete.

You can pick up this sweet little cup of cheer mug at Michaels, it was $5 on sale last weekend and it’s my new favorite. Once eggnog arrives in stores, I’ll be drinking my flavored coffee in it until Christmas :)

Weekend Reading

Greetings friends! So much is going on in my world right now, when it rains it pours! I’m working on not one but two kitchen remodels for a local non-profit, and a bathroom as well and there are so many details to consider! It took a few days but I finally have a design plan in place for all three spaces. I also have a few holiday projects in the works, I’ll share those in the weeks to come. Favorite links from the week below!
