Pom Pom Wreath

My good friend Arlene started a blog Lemon & Wildwood and has inspired me to start blogging again. So over the next few weeks, I'll try to catch up on a few of the crazy "projects" that I've been doing while I am also looking for work.

In case you hadn't already heard, I am currently into all things late 60's and early to mid 70's. I saw this cute idea to make a pom pom wreath over here. However, I decided I was going to make it as cheaply as possible. I bought a straw wreath from the dollar store and vowed not to spend more than a dollar for each yarn. Ugh...I went so many places and it was much harder than I thought it would be to find dollar yarn. So I didn't really get the colors that I wanted and some of the yarn was not the greatest quality. Plus, the yarns were different textures resulting in different looking pom poms.

I made over 70 pom poms. Since I thought I would only be making 40 or so, I used my little stork embroidery scissors which ended up giving me a blister on my finger. Ouch!

But I think the final result was worth it? What do you think? I have it on my bedroom door right now but will hang it on my front door after my Halloween decorations come down.

I love your wreath – the colors go so well together and the howl is very cute. I think the results were worth all the time you spent looking for yarn.
