I was recently inspired to update my Christmas mantel décor this year (see all the details in this post). I really loved the look of this white Snowball Wreath from CB2, and I also saw a similar Pom Pom Wreath at JoAnn. Unfortunately, I did not love the price tag. However, in looking at it, I figured this was something I could try to make myself to save some money on the designer look I wanted!
I had experience making the Martha Stewart tissue paper pom poms and flowers before, and I thought that I could make the same effect for this wreath using the same type of tissue paper flowers.
Since I was making smaller flowers (and not large hanging pom poms), I cut sheets of white tissue paper into eighths (each sheet creating eight rectangular sheets).
Using eight sheets (one full sheet of tissue paper) and a piece of wire, I followed these instructions to fold the sheets into accordion folds, tie with wire, and trim the edges into a rounded curve.
After securing with wire and trimming the edges, carefully separate and fluff each sheet of tissue paper to create individual flowers.
I purchased an 18" wooden wreath form at a craft store. Using the wire from the flowers, I attached the flowers to the wreath form at a two-flower width. I used approximately 32 flowers to cover the 18" wreath form this way.
I am really happy with the results! You can see the DIY wreath styled with the rest of my chic holiday mantel décor in this post.
