Y’all…I love a pompom.  I mean, what’s more fun than making one? So when I saw some super crazy thick yarn at the craft store last week I immediately knew I wanted to snap some up and make pompoms with it. 

But what to do with giant pompoms?

Step by step

To make these easy yarn pompoms we need to wrap the yarn around something about 5-6″ wide. 

There’s no need for fancy pom pom makers, I used the first thing of that size I saw in my craft area-a pack of jigsaw blades! You could also use a sturdy piece of cardboard.

Wrap the strands of yarn around your form about 40 times for each pom pom.

Carefully cut the end and slip the yarn off the form.  Cut another piece of yarn approximately 5 inches long and use it to tie a knot around the middle of the yarn.

Cut the loops on either end of the knot with sharp scissors to create your pompom.  Keep on pompom makin’ until you run out of yarn-I ended up with about 21 pompoms from two skeins.

Use the greening pins to attach the pompoms around your straw wreath, don’t forget to cover the sides of the wreath too.

I used a hot glue gun to attach a ribbon to the back of the wreath for as a wreath hanger.
