DIY Pom Pom Wreath [+ Tutorial Video!]

Want to learn exactly how to Make a Pom Pom Spring Wreath? This super-fun do-it-yourself wreath will make a colorful addition to any front door! The trick to making this spring wreath work is the addition of deco mesh ribbon to ensure your pom-poms stick firmly to your wreath and don’t fall off – which sometimes happens if you glue straight onto a foam wreath.

This is a wonderful spring project to make with children and the wider family; personalise your spring wreath with embellishments such as bells, baubles, ribbons and tassels, to make it truly one of a kind!

  • Scissors

DIY Spring Pom Pom Wreath Tutorial:

Step 1:

Create enough pom poms to fill your spring wreath. I used around 35 pom-poms for a 20cm-wide / 8”-wide wreath. Create lots of interest with different sizes and colours. There are lots of great pom pom makers on the market that will help speed up the process! If you’re making a large wreath, you could buy some premade felt pom poms to act as fillers.

Step 2:

Now you have your pom poms, wrap the hessian ribbon around the wreath. This will help the pom poms to stick firmly if you are using a foam wreath, or act as a base if you decide to use a metal wreath. Use a hot glue gun to attach the end of the ribbon to the wreath and then wrap it around, applying more glue to ensure it sits flush to the wreath. Once you’re done, trim the end of the ribbon.

Step 3:

Now you can start gluing down your pom poms, starting with the biggest and filling the gaps with the smaller ones.

Step 4:
