Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue
Foam wreath ring
Mini Christmas house
Mini bottle brush trees
Assorted neutral colors of yarn
Step 1 Cover the foam wreath with felt
Cut your sheet of white felt into 2-inch strips. Apply Tacky Glue and adhere the felt strips by winding them around the wreath. Continue to wind the felt strips and glue them to the wreath with Tacky Glue until it is completely covered. Covering the wreath with felt will help the pom poms adhere to your DIY Christmas wreath!
Step 2 Make your own pom poms
Now you’ll make the pom poms for your DIY Christmas wreath! To make two different sizes, cut your cardboard into 3-inch and 4-inch squares. Wrap yarn tightly around either cardboard square until it’s very full— more yarn makes a fluffier pom pom! Gently pull the bundle of yarn off the cardboard and tie the center tightly with a chenille stem. Use scissors to cut the loops of yarn, then gather all the yarn in one hand and trim the ends to the same length to create a perfectly round pom pom. Repeat this step to create lots of pom poms in a variety of sizes and colors to fill your pom pom wreath! It takes approximately 40 pom poms to fill this 18-inch winter wreath.
Step 3 Glue the pom poms onto the wreath
Apply glue to the bottom of each pom pom and press into place to adhere it to your winter wreath. It helps to use a straight pin to keep the pom poms in place as the glue dries. Continue to add pom poms to the wreath until it is full, alternating in sizes and colors to give your DIY Christmas wreath some depth and dimension. Once the glue is almost dry, pull out all the straight pins.
Step 4 Finish with extra Christmas decorations
This pom pom wreath gets an extra boost of Christmas magic with mini holiday decorations! Use Tacky Glue to adhere the decorations to the bottom of your DIY Christmas wreath. For this project, we used mini bottle brush trees and a mini Christmas house!
