Making Seasonal Wreath:

Step 1:
Wrap your wreath in ribbon, covering the entire surface (you may pin or glue ribbon to surface).
*Think out of the box for this step! Experiment with texture for example try Burlap.

Step 2:
Construct pom-poms using Clover’s Pom-Pom Makers as instructed below. Amount of pom-poms depend on design and size of pom-poms used for wreath. An average of 5-10 large pom-poms are needed for a larger size wreath as shown in the Winter wreath.
*Use different sizes of pom-poms for a more organic look.

Step 3:
Layout pom-poms before gluing/pinning. Once this is done carefully glue or pin all pom-poms to wreath.

Step 4:
For beginners we suggest making a bow for wreath. This will allow you to embellish wreath without having to make too many pom-poms. (As shown in Spring Wreath)

Step 5:
Get creative! Embellish with buttons, seashells and more… Mix crafts such as felted flowers or even a pom-pom owl!

Clover Tip:
