DIY PomPom Twig Wreath

Welcome to Quince Cottage!

Holiday decorating is well underway here and we're hoping to share a few ideas with you this season.
Wreaths are a must at this time of year, right? And pompoms have never been more popular. Why not unite these two in a destined-to-become-classic decoration?
First you need to buy or make a twig wreath. We got ours for $3.99 each at Hobby Lobby.

You'll also need florist's wire, wire cutters, and craft lights (we got our lights at Michael's), as well as AA batteries for the lights. These lights come in multiple shapes, we chose stars. We like the programmable ones that go on at a designated time and then turn themselves off six hours later.

We bought a pompom-maker that creates four different sizes.

Hint 1: to make fluffy pompoms fast, use chunky yarn.

Hint 2: When you tie a piece of yarn around the middle of the in-progress pompom, leave several extra inches hanging loose. This will come in handy later. (See photo below).

For our wreath we used two different yarns and two different sized pompoms. We made three pompoms per wreath.

Put batteries in the box attached to the lights, then use florist's wire to attach the box to the back of the wreath. Next wrap the lights around the wreath.
Now, tie the pompoms together to make a cluster, and then tie the cluster to the wreath.
Finally, cut a length of ribbon to hang the wreath.

We hope you enjoyed your visit!

Quince Cottage Style mixes old and new, rustic and opulent.
Our goal is to make our new subdivision house look inviting, beautiful, 
and as though it wasn't born yesterday!

Buster and Daisy hope y'all had a Happy Thanksgiving!
They like Thanksgiving because it's all about eating and napping, two of their favorite pastimes.
