Sunday night while watching a movie (until far too late in the night), I took the opportunity to make a pile of pom-poms. Did you know one skein of yarn will make twelve large pom-poms?
If needed, check out this old but handy-dandy Pom-Pom Tutorial.
I’d planned to make a heart wreath for Valentine’s, but something intervened…like the thought of using the initial any time of year, not just during heart month.
As usual, I used something I already had here in The Land of Making Do for the initial base. I’d saved a piece of cardboard from some sort of packaging. Also as usual, I didn’t get a picture of it in its original state.
I traced the H using the pattern I’d made for the Initial Shower Curtain DIY.
Since the cardboard will be hidden behind pom-poms, rough-cut is fine.
Arrange the pom-poms, then glue them one at a time to keep the spacing right.
My pom-poms had tails from when I made them, so I trimmed those after gluing.
For a hanger, hot-glue ribbon ends to the back side. This is almost embarrassingly cheap and easy.
But, who’ll know – except you and me, of course (wink)?
Oh, and one more thing to remember…pull off the strands of hot glue you left behind. They show up in
a picture the sunlight. Ha!
I love things hung over antique mirrors. One problem, though. Mirrors reflect and sometimes distort what I’m trying to highlight in a picture.
You get the idea, though, right? I’ve got other projects to share with you this week, more things like this initial – fun, easy stuff.

What are you up to this week? Are you thinking ahead for Valentine’s decor? Any wreath-making ideas rolling around in your brain?
