Valentine's Boho Pom-pom Wreath

It's the month of looove! Yes, bring it! I've been scheming on how to add a few little fun things around the house to make Valentine's special for kiddos and couldn't stop thinking about a pom wreath I saw at Anthro over Christmas. I figured I could recreate the wreath in pinks and add some tassels to make it look kinda boho.

Now I realize that labeling this boho is a stretch but hey, if Anthro could call it boho, well so will I! 

Making the pom-poms was so fun, but a little time consuming. Which makes this a good winter weekend project because it can easily happen over the span of a weekend...especially if you are snowed in! Here are a few simple instructions so that you can add this quirky little addition to your Valentine's decor.

What you'll need:

-16 small poms and 16 large poms (here's the tutorial I used)
-5 tassels (tutorial here)
-1 large wire wreath frame (available at Micheal's)

Step 1.

Using 3-5 colors of wool blend yarn, create all 32 pom-poms. Be sure to leave the "tails" long so that you can tie it around the wreath later on.

Step 2. 

Arrange poms on wreath  to get an idea of what placement you want the colors and sizes of poms to go. I alternated sizes and then added a few small ones at the end to fill any blank spots. When it comes to color, use personal preference! I didn't want anything too matchy-matchy so I just  
arranged them higgly-piggly, to keep it quirky and dare I say, boho.

Step 3.

When you are happy with the placement, carefully recreate the pattern on a table of floor as a guide when you start tying the poms onto the wire frame. Begin tying poms around the wire, 2 to 3 times to ensure that the poms stay put. Keep adding poms until entire frame is covered. Hold wreath upright so that you can see and fill in any blank spots. 

Step 4.

After the frame is completely filled, figure out which part of the wreath will be the top and bottom. Sometimes it take a few turns to find the best angle! Now you are ready for the tassels which totally makes the wreath so don't skip this part! just as you did with the poms, tie the ends of tails on the wire frame. Make sure to  stagger the tassels so that they are evening spaced on the bottom quarter of the wreath.

And done! Happy crafting!
