DIY Pom-Pom Berry Christmas Wreath
If you’re in the market form an elegant, understated but stunning diy wreath, then this pom-pom berry wreath is perfect! Want to add a bit more pizzazz? Throw in a small acorns or pine cones and a twine strip. We found this treasure by the one and only Martha Stewart, and we just HAD to share.
What you’ll need:
- small white pom-poms
- Rit Dye in reddish hues (we like tangerine, taupe, wine, and scarlet )
- Grapevine Wreath Base
- willow branches
- fast-drying glue (clear)
In several bowls add 4 teaspoons of various colors of RIT dye to hot water, use a random mix of the various colors for a more natural effect. Soak the pom-poms for at least 5 minuets, the pom-poms (I like using a strainer or slotted spoon) and place them on a baking pan lined with paper towels.
Let them dry completely, this could take up to two days.
Intertwine the willow branches into the grapevine base, make sure they are secure and well entwined in the wreath to avoid problems later on.
Glue the pom-poms to the branches with a drop of glue. It’s best to put the glue on the pom-pom instead of on the stick to minimize residue and mess, this is especially true if you are using hot glue.
