A few days ago, we made a billy ball bouquet using pom poms and paper. We love pom poms and are always looking for other ways to incorporate them into DIY projects, so we decided to make this billy ball wreath. If you saw our article on billy ball flowers, you know they make great home decor—as do wreaths. So it only seemed natural to put them together! Read on to see what tools and materials you need to make your own billy ball wreath.
Bring the Sunshine In
While some people might use fresh or dried billy balls in their wreaths, we think pom poms are the way to go. Just like billy balls, they have a circular shape and great texture. Plus they’ll last you a lot longer.
Our designer Meagan made this billy ball wreath, and I have to say that I’m loving this combination of colors! The bright and vibrant yellow looks beautiful against our gorgeous green crepe paper. I also think the asymmetrical design works well here since the gold hoop complements these colors nicely. We’ve made a few different asymmetrical wreaths and love them, but you can always make your leaves and flowers go all the way around!
To make your own billy ball wreath, gather the tools and materials below. If you’re cutting the leaves by hand, scroll down for your printable template. If you’re using a cutting machine, we’ve also included an SVG file for the leaves. Then follow the photo tutorial to see how to put it all together! If you haven’t made pom poms before, this article can help.
