ANTHROPOLOGIE INSPIRED TUFTED WOOL WREATH DIY

Do you ever see something and can’t get it out of your mind? Something that speaks to you and begs you to take it home?
I saw a Anthropologie  tufted wool wreath last year and it was love at first sight… but it was love with a price! A big over $100.00 price.
So, I decided to make my own “tufted” (pom-pom) wreath. The wreath is fuzzy and warm and tufted and lumpy and looks like a sheep… a perfect wreath  for wintry weather!
This wreath was sooooo easy to make and really fun. Even if you are not a crafter, this is a diy for you…

 ANTHROPOLOGIE INSPIRED TUFTED WOOL WREATH DIY
2 skeins Red Heart Light And Lofty Yarn in Cafe’ Au Lait or any fuzzy wool
Clover Pom Pom Maker (click HERE  for resource)
1 straw wreath, leave the plastic wrapping on
hot glue

1 and 2. Make pom pom’s using two skeins of yarn. I make the pom-poms using a Clover Pom-Pom Maker. 
3. Trim any straggly ends off the pom-poms and put wreath and pom pom’s on a covered work surface

4. Glue pom-pom’s in a close but random pattern, covering the wreath.
5. Add an extra pom-pom here and there to make the surface of the wreath lumpy.
6. Pull on the yarn so it gets fuzzy and fluffy.
That’s it! I told you it was EASY!

Hang and enjoy!

    I love this and haven’t made pom poms since roller skating days in my youth! What size wreath did you use?

    How lovely…I never knew there was an actual devise for making pom-poms. This idea would also make a nice throw pillow…just attach them down with needle and thread! Thanks for sharing!

      Just bought my first pom-pom maker (Extra Large) and made a green one out of old yarn. Turned out cute and looks like a “moss ball”!. Fun to make and you can just toss them anywhere around the house. They make nice cat toys too. :) Thanks Yvonne for turning me on to pom-poms!

    Your wreath looks so soft and cozy. I think it would be a great stress reliever. if you “petted” is several times a day. :) Not that you need to be relieved of stress. LOL It was just a thought.

    Love this – if I make it, I will have to keep an eye on my kitty cat, Cassie Mae, because she will end up trying to figure out o way to climb up and squeeze her fat butt into it while its on the wall !!!

    I love your version- I’d be the dummy that paid full price for the Antro wreath. I rarely do that, but when I saw it I just had to have it! I’d love to make a pompom wreath soon. It looks so fun.

    Oh Yvonne, this wreath is absolutely adorable! I’m going to have to make one. I haven’t made pom pom’s in years. I just started crocheting again which I hadn’t done in years either. Enjoy your day, Gail
