Crafty 4th of July Firecracker Pom Pom Wreath!

Since, we are celebrating our Independence Day on the 4th of July, why not make this day even more special by making another crafty project. I am in the mood to decorate the door and give it a little firecracker look, what do you think?  So, lets get started on our fun, exciting 4th of July crafty tutorial.

Supplies:
Aleene's Tacky Glue (You can use Hot glue, but if working with kids, use Aleene's glue)
Felt 
Pompoms (Red, White and Blue)
Scissors
Foam wreath
Ribbon
Reach for your felt and cut them in several square pieces or you can wrap the felt around the entire foam wreath.  Sophia of course wanted the square pieces, so that is what we ended up doing.  


Now, go ahead and reach for your square pieces of felt and gather your pompoms together. We will start with the white square felt pieces. Take the red pompoms and damp it in some glue and place it on the white square piece of felt.  Continue this process until you have enough to complete the inside of the wreath circle.


Next, you rub some glue onto the foam wreath and start placing all the pompom pieces on to the foam wreath.
Take the white pompoms and damp each of them in some glue and place them behind the red pompoms.  Continue this process until the circle is complete. Keep a little section open on top to wrap your ribbon.
Then you will glue the blue pompoms behind the white pompoms, complete the circle as well and fill all the blue pompoms close together, so it looks really fluffy and full.

Once, the wreath is full of red, white and blue pompoms, get your lovely decorative 4th of July ribbon and tie it around the wreath. Voila,  you have created your own Crafty Firecracker Pompom Wreath.  What a fantastic way to decorate your front door or any room with this lovely handmade project. Here is my little silly Sophia having fun with her new 4th of July wreath!
Remember, you can use any other color pompoms you like for any occasion, make it your own and have fun with it. Enjoy and now it is your turn to create one of your own. Let me know how it turns out, I am curious to know. See you next time for more crafty projects!

Sincerely,
