Shabby Chic Pom-Pom Flowers

Hello Pretty Providence readers! I’m Bethany, from Whistle and Ivy and I am so excited to be sharing with you today. I know it’s not even Valentine’s Day, but I already have my heart set on springtime. I have big plans for an awesome garden this year, but since it is still too early to get outside and enjoy the weather, I will have to settle for bringing springtime inside. These shabby chic pom-pom flowers bring a pop of color and springtime cheer to our front room and they were incredibly easy to whip up.

What you need:

Worsted Weight Yarn
Floral Wire
Floral Tape
Green Felt
Hot Glue Gun
Pliers

Start with your pom poms. You can make them by wrapping yarn around your fingers, but I like to use this big fork I have, it keeps my hands free to tie them later.

Wrap the yarn WAY more times that you think you need to, then tie a second piece of yarn tightly around it.

To finish the pom-pom,ย  cut the loops and trim the ends until they are even. This part is my favorite!

Once you have your pom-poms finished, make the greenery by cutting small circles of green felt.

Then make small cuts to give it “leaves”. Trim the tips to make them roundish and more natural.

Using hot glue, attach the greenery to the bottom of each pom-pom. I didn’t glue the very ends of the leaves down,ย  but make sure you have a good portion of it glued so the pom-pom is sturdy instead of floppy.

Next, turn your wire into a stem by wrapping it tightly in floral tape. Once it’s wrapped, use your pliers to bend the top into a spiral shape. This gives it a sturdy edge to glue the pom-pom to.

Using hot glue, attach each pom-pom to a stem. I made some off-white ones, and I love the mixture of color.

    I’ve been making pompoms all week. I think it’s therapeutic. I’m also weird.
