Friday Favs....Knockoff Anthropologie Wool Pom Pom Wreath


I usually post my Friday Favs on Thursday afternoon, 
but instead Thursday morning I woke up with a sore throat, 
and by Thursday afternoon I was in my pajamas in bed.


The day wasn't a total wash, however, as I sat in bed making pom poms and watching Gilmore Girls on netflix.
(Oh, the frustrations of seasons 6 and 7 and the train wreck you know awaits Luke and Lorelai!
Yet, I've watched every episode a shameless number of times.)


The inspiration for my pom pom wreath came from Anthropologie's wool pom pom wreath.
I think it costs upwards of $150, and no matter how fluffy and soft it is, 
there's no way I'm spending that on a wreath.
When Jill Hinson made one herself,  she inspired me to give it a go.
I used the same thick and chunky wool-ease yarn she recommended which worked perfectly.
I chose to place the pom poms randomly on my wreath and I am really pleased with how it turned out.
It's so fluffy!


Getting my wreath done meant that one week before Christmas I changed my Christmas mantel decor.
Sick or not, that's how I roll.
My creative ideas won't let me rest until they're accomplished!
I think the wreath and snowflakes will be appropriate decor through January.


And I made a few extra pom poms to hang on this felted wool ball garland.

I hope these last few days until Christmas find you healthy and well and full of God's peace.
I'm hunkering down again today, chewing on Airborne and chugging down orange juice and hot lemonade.
By tomorrow I hope to be up and around.




Have a HAPPY, HAPPY Friday
and a 
safe and BLESSED weekend!

    1. Mary Alice, it certainly wouldn't cost as much as Anthro's if I did. I'm feeling much better today, which is good. Lots of Christmas stuff still to do.

  9. I love the wreath! What did you use for the frame? You are a very talented lady and I'm always encouraged by your words! I've shared them many times to encourage a group of women battling chronic illness.
    I pray you are totally healed by the time you read these words! God bless you, my friend. ❤️

    1. Susan, I woke up well enough to go to church and felt better and better as the day progressed! Hallelujah! I hot glued the pom-poms to an old straw like wreath, but you could also tie them to a wire wreath form.
