Christmas pudding wreath


How amazing does this giant Christmas pudding wreath look - it's perfect to deck your halls with and easy to make. 

What you'll need: 

  • Brown wool
  • White wool
  • Pom pom maker or cardboard to make your own
  • Scissors
  • Green felt
  • Red mini pom pom's 
  • Cardboard - cereal box type card rather than paper card

What to do: 

  1. First take your cardboard and draw a circle on to it - you could use a dinner plate to draw around. 
  2. Next, take a smaller plate (like a side plate) and place it in the centre of your circle and draw around it too. 
  3. Carefully cut out your circles, so you're left with a donut shape. Remember - the bigger and thicker your 'donut' the more pom pom's it'll take to fill it!  This is going to be your wreath. 
  4. Next, you're going to need to make a lot of pom pom's! Find out the basics of pom pom making here. For our wreath we used 12 brown pom pom's and 8 white pom pom's. Remember to leave some string at the end of your pom pom as you'll need this to help tie it to your wreath. 
  5. Once you've made all your pom pom's arrange them on the wreath so from the top the first 1/3 is white pom pom's and the last 2/3 are brown pom pom's - we had two layers of pom pom's on ours to make it looks extra thick and full but you can do as many as you like. 
  6. When you're happy with how it looks use the string hanging from your pom pom's to tie them to the wreath - you might need some glue to hold them in place in parts - especially the second layer. 
  7. Make sure everything is secured and doesn't fall when you hold the wreath up. To hang it up you'll need a loop of ribbon or string glued to the back of the wreath and sticking out the top. 
  8. Finally cut out some leaf shapes from your green felt and stick these to the top of your wreath with glue and then add some small red pre-made craft pom pom's for the berries. 

Ta dah - you have a tasty decoration good enough to eat!
