See how we upgraded a DIY Easter Wreath by adding some new flowers and pom-poms. Our house has an 8 ft tall entryway door. Most of the commercial door decorations are just too small on our door. Spring and Easter decorating are one of my favorites. While out shopping and found an adorable bunny ear wreath that I just couldn’t pass up. I thought it might be big enough to work. However, when I got home and put it on the door, the scale was just way off. What about adding more pom-poms to the wreath?
Time for some choices:
Option 1: Take it back? …But it is so cute
Option 2: Hang it somewhere else?… It would be so cute on the front door
Option 3: Think through some choices to make it work?
The current Easter wreath was all small white pom-pom’s. Thinking about the Pom-Poms reminded me of when I was a little girl. My Grandma Craig spent hours crocheting beautiful blankets and keeping me busy. She taught me how to make yarn pom-poms. What if we use some DIY upgrades to our Easter wreath?
Don’t be afraid to start with something that is close to what you want. You can always customize things to make them your own
Making pom-poms for our Easter wreath
Seriously, I learned to make pom-poms so long ago that I could not even remember how to do it. Let’s start with a Pinterest search for what is new in the world of Pom-Pom making. What a pleasant surprise to see some pretty handy new tools. It looked faster than by hand, more efficient and fun. So off I to find some yarn and a pom-pom maker. I can’t remember the last craft project where I used yarn. They had a fantastic selection at Hobby Lobby. Dazzling collections of yarn with different textures, colors, and thicknesses. It was challenging to narrow down the choices. Once I found everything I needed for the project, it was time to start.
Next, I reviewed several YouTube videos on how to use the pom-pom maker. Just like the videos, it was effortless to use. Making pom-poms a great place to have your kids help it is easy but time-consuming. I spent the better part of a couple of movies creating the pom-poms to add to my Easter wreath. Adding some silk hydrangeas improved the texture and gave the wreath more substance when held up to the door.
DIY Easter Wreath Tips and tricks:
1. Choose a variety of colors and textures of yarn
2. Attach the pom-pom’s to the wreath with floral wire
3. Add some flowers
The finished project captures the Easter vibe and has a custom look. Giving in to my spring fever, I completed the look by styling my antique chest on the front porch. I included some fun ready-made Easter accessories.
