Does anyone besides me have a stash of wreaths? My porch is my favorite place to decorate for the holidays and seasons. I like to spread a sense of cheer and social friendliness to my neighbors. I don’t know if it’s working or not, but no one has complained anyway.
This project was easy, but a little time consuming getting all the pompoms made. The supplies are yarn, ¼ inch foam board, and some old buttons. I used a pompom maker to create them, but you can use good ole’ cardboard. See my instructions for how to use a pompom maker here.
First I cut out a triangle out on my ¼ inch foam board. My triangle is 15 inches top to bottom, and 11 inches wide across the bottom.
You will want to make a couple of pompoms before you do this step. This candy corn has 3 white, 16 orange and 12 yellow medium sized pompoms. Leave the tails long when you tie off your pompom. Those tails will be how you attach them to the foam board. Mark evenly spaced horizontal lines across the triangle. This will depend on the size of your pompoms. I just eyeballed where I wanted to place the pompoms on each horizontal line. They are so fluffy that you don’t have to be perfect.
I used an ice pick to punch the holes in the foam board. Then I threaded the pompom tails through the holes and a button. Tie your tails together firmly, and clip short.
Tie a piece of yarn around the top 3 buttons for a loop to hang it.
Since I have a black front door this really stands out when viewing from the street. Come back next month and see what I do to it for Halloween!
