Twig & PomPom Holiday Wreath

Wreaths are a must at this time of year, right? And pompoms have never been more popular. Why not unite these two in a destined-to-become-classic decoration?
First you need to buy or make a twig wreath. We got ours for $3.99 each at Hobby Lobby.
You'll also need florist's wire, wire cutters, and craft lights (we got our lights at Michael's), as well as AA batteries for the lights. These lights come in multiple shapes, we chose stars. We like the programmable ones that go on at a designated time and then turn themselves off six hours later.
We bought a pompom-maker that creates four different sizes.
For our wreath we used two different yarns and two different sized pompoms. We made three pompoms per wreath.
Put batteries in the box attached to the lights, then use florist's wire to attach the box to the back of the wreath. Next wrap the lights around the wreath.

Now, tie the pompoms together to make a cluster, and then tie the cluster to the wreath.

Finally, cut a length of ribbon to hang the wreath.
Here are some photos of the finished wreaths. For more tips on this project and more DIY projects, please visit our blog!
We made four of these wreaths for the four windows in our dining room.
And it wouldn't be a complete post without a picture of our Irish Jack Russells, Daisy and Buster!
