I am obsessed with anything with pom-poms. Therefore, I thought, why not make a pom-pom wreath for Valentine’s Day? The easy part was using the heart wreath form I had on hand. I could not wait to create the wreath and decorate my mantel for Valentine’s Day.

However, I did not have the four colors of yarn I wanted to use. I searched for inexpensive yarns that were the same weight on the internet. To my delight, I found the perfect yarns. Now it was time to plan how to make a heart-shaped pom-pom wreath.

How to Make a Pom Pom Wreath
Since wire wreath frames can be any size or shape, I decided to use a heart-shaped one for Valentine’s (this is the one I used). Note that the larger the wire wreath frame, the more pom-pom you will need to make.
Supplies and Tools
- Light pink yarn
- Hot pink yarn
- Cream yarn
- Red yarn
- Pom pom maker
- Wreath form
- Wire cutters
- Video (watch the how-to video HERE)

I wanted to update my Valentine’s decor with pinks, reds, and cream. I usually use only red and white, but this year I tried to lighten it up since we spend so much time at home. Something new and fresh is just what we needed.
I purchased this heart-shaped wireframe with the hope of making something new. Then I remembered a circular pom-pom Valentine’s wreath in our Valentine’s Blog Hop from last year (you can see it here) that I adored.
These are the colors I choose for this year’s Valentine’s Day decor.
Planning the Pom Pom Placement
How many pom poms did I need to cover this wireframe? My daughter, Olivia, had a bin filled with pom-poms she made for another project, and I thought I could use them to determine how many pom poms I needed. It appeared that I needed 40. Next, I divided the 40 by the number of yarn skeins I was using to determine that I needed 10 of each color.
So I set out to make them all the same size, and I just felt like it needed different sizes, so I started making 5 of each size from each skein of yarn.
My next step was to make all my pom-poms (these are pom-pom makers I used).
Once I made all 40 pom-poms, I started attaching them. You see my easy how-to video HERE.
I left the ties long enough to use to attach my pom-poms to the heart wreath form (I used this form).
I wanted to start in the center with a red pom-pom. Then I placed the pom-pom where I wanted it on the front side of the frame, then pulled the ties to the backside and tied them together.
Then I cut the ties close to the knot (I used these scissors).
Now for the fun part — adding the rest of the pom-poms.
It turned out I needed a few more pom-poms, and I decided to use this size pom-pom maker for those.
