Yarn Pom-Pom Wreath {I’m at The DIY Dreamer today!}

Hello Dahlings! I am hanging out with the fabulous Christine today aka The DIY Dreamer, and making a Yarn Pom-Pom Wreath.  If you aren’t following Christine yet, oh you need to she is a kindred creative spirit and a wonderful person 🙂
 
  I’m Tanya and I craft, create and decorate at twelveOeight.  Our family loves decorating for fall every year, but after the pumpkins are on the porch, I like to make a few new things to usher in the falling leaves and chilly mornings.  And, if the project includes easy to find supplies, even better. 
Enter, the Yarn Pom-Pom Wreath…

 
 
 I don’t really do any knitting or crocheting, but I cannot pass up the beautiful, rich variety of colors in the yarn aisle.  With a nod to the earth tones of the season (any maybe a bit of the 70’s too!) I used a few super simple craft supplies to make my fun new wreath.


 
I started out with a Pool Noodle from where else? The Dollar Store.  I connected the ends with strong tape, and used almost a whole skein of mossy green yarn around the base of the wreath (aka: taped pool noodle.)
Next I used a package of chartreuse and brown ric-rac and criss-crossed them around the wreath securing the ends together where my pom-pom’s would be attached.
I tried winding the multi-colored and orange yarn around a piece of cardboard, then a small plastic craft box lid.  I ended up just winding it around my hand as you can see in the picture above.  I’m the one with the multiple hot-glue gun burns holding the orange yarn.   I still have not mastered the hot glue-gun, we will save that for another day.
 
 
Once I made a few large multi-colored pom-pom’s and a few smaller orange pom-pom’s I attached them on the gimpy side (where the ends of the pool noodle meet) of the wreath and voila! A new fall wreath.  Not that I necessarily needed another wreath, but much like chalkboards, one can never really have too many right?
 
Thank you so much for crafting and creating with me today
