so yarn and Anthropologie.
But I didn’t adore the $128 price tag.
But I really don’t think of myself as being one of those super fantastically crafty girls
with ‘crafty’ type projects like I think some of those bloggers are.
for that certain someone~ so off I went to my local Ben Franklin.
I wondered just how one goes about making a pom pom.
(Secretly I was hoping that I would find a big old bag of chunky pom poms ready to go)
As a Ben Franklin employee walked by I asked her about making pom poms, did she know how to do it
and how much yarn would I need for a wreath.
Frustrated, I handed the yarn & pom pom maker to my daughter
and I showed her my sad looking pile of yarn that was trying it’s best to be a pom pom.
She grabbed the yarn waved her magically crafty fingers and she made one.
Yep, there were. I found several different ways-
with nails in boards, with a fork, or with cardboard tubes

( ahem… okay… they sort of looked like they were having a wild hair day)
I used the silk ribbon I found at Ben Franklin a few weeks ago that was on the boxwood
wreath shared in this post and added a simple sprig of berries from the yard.
the could have been only $3.00 for the yarn
but instead was $3 + $6 for the ridiculous pom pom maker
Anthropologie inspired wreath.
It’s not perfect, definitely a little sparse and has some pretty wild hairs but I kind of like it.
