Just so people understand, the pompoms are not made, they are part of the yarn. I call it lumpy yarn. If you pull it tightly, it will sink in between the strands of green, just allow a bit of the red to peek thru here and there and it will look like pompoms.

Has anyone made this wreath? I am wondering if the pompoms are in addition to wrapping the yarn around the frame. I think this idea could be adapted to a custome donut shaped pillow form and would make a lovely comfy sofa pillow for the holidays! Cover with chenille yarn sor extra comfy goodness! Thanks for sharing a pretty creative idea!

Isn't this a cute idea? How would you better "personalize" this wreath?
