DIY Pom Pom Heart Wreath for Valentine’s Day

Today I want to show you just how easy it is to make a DIY pom pom heart wreath! 

Valentine’s Day is less than a month away and the stores are packed with red and pink heart shaped everything!  Personally, I like to keep my Valentine’s Day decor subtle.  It’s not a holiday that I go “all out” on!  But, I do like to add a few things to my winter decor just to cheer things up on these cold and blustery winter days! And, this neutral DIY pom pom heart is a quick way to add some love to almost any space!

Pom Pom Heart Wreath Hanging from Blanket Ladder with Striped Ribbon

supplies to make a diy pom pom heart wreath

I made my wreath using pom poms made from a neutral, off white yarn . The wreath is hung from the top rail my blanket ladder in the living room.  I attached the striped ribbon at an angle, but you could also hang it straight.  I made this wreath in about an hour while I watched TV – it’s so easy!  And, besides the yarn, you just need one thing – a heart shaped wire wreath frame that you can find HERE.  The photo below shows the wire wreath frame with the pom poms tied to it from the back..

First, you need to make the yarn pom poms for the wreath.  You can see how I make a  pom pom in THIS post – How to Make a POM POM Garland.  When I made this heart wreath, I also made a new pom pom  garland for my mantel using the same yarn.  For the garland and the wreath, I used two skeins of yarn.  I do recommend a thicker yarn to get a nice and full pom pom.

Once you’ve made all of your pom poms, tie them to the back of the wire frame using the longer pieces of yarn and then trim as needed.  To do this, place each pom pom inside the front of the wreath frame and thread the ties out the back side of the wreath frame.  Then, tie the yarn around the center wire of the frame to attach it and trim the yarn ends. Continue attaching the pom poms to the wreath frame until it’s full – I used 18 pom poms!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial to make a heart shaped pom pom wreath! It’s an inexpensive way to add some cozy texture to your home for Valentine’s Day! And, you can keep this wreath to reuse next year!

I've never made pom poms with thick yarn before. It makes so much sense! Your wreath is lovely!

You always have such wonderful ideas! This looks so good with the red wine colored throw behind the heart wreath. I may have to get a Pom Pom maker! I do like this bigger size and your type of yarn you used. We used to have several fun yarn shops in town but they’ve closed. I think your yarn choice makes the wreath!!
