You can make this Red and White Pom Pom Mini Wreath Ornament in no time for little costs. There are minimal craft supplies and time involved in making one of these cute mini wreath ornaments.
I made this cute little mini wreath ornament for my Ornament Exchange partner this year, Alexandra of Eye Love Knots.
Times passes to quickly so I have lost track of how many years we have been participating in the Ornament Exchange for bloggers hosted by Erlene of My Pinterventures. It is one of my favorite seasonal events because this event allows us to connect with other bloggers on a more personal level.
Go Here to see all of this years DIY Christmas Ornaments which have been zipping through the mail from one blogger to another and link up your own with us!
HOW TO MAKE A RED AND WHITE POM POM MINI WREATH CHRISTMAS TREE ORNAMENT
- 1 Wood Curtain ring with eye hook attached (affiliate)
- DecoArt Christmas Red paint (affiliate)
- Lots of Red and White Glitter Mini Pom Poms
- DecoArt Silver Glitter Paint (affiliate)
- Mini Snowman
- Hot Glue Gun
- Hot Glue
- Ribbon of choice for hanging
PAINT THE RING
The first thing I decided to do was paint the wood ring just in case there might be a gap between the Pom poms which there was not. A pipe cleaner came in handy to hang the ornament to dry on my little mini tree I am using in my craft room for just such projects. I have plans for that little mini tree too!
Also see our Mini Wreath for Kitchen Cabinets tutorial. These will be getting a nice little added touch to match my decor this year!
ADDING THE POM POMS
Hot glue and your glue gun get the done done quickly of adding the pom poms. I began by placing three large pom poms mainly to keep the number of smaller ones I wood need down. While the curtain ring is small, those mini pom poms are small too so I worried about having purchased plenty at first. There were some left over in the end so one bag was plenty. I found this big bag full of 150 Glitter Christmas Pom Poms from Oriental Trading. (affiliate)
THE POM POM PATTERN
The red and white colors look really pretty lined up sort of like a candy candy swirl so that is the pattern I decided to go with. You can tell that result better as we progress with adding the Pom Poms which goes pretty quickly. If you wanted to make a few of these and space them around your tree, it wouldn’t take long at all.
THE BACK SIDE OF THE MINI WREATH
As I was gluing the Pom Poms I did decide to continue the pattern to the back side so I wanted you to see how it was looking back there during the process. Only a few left to go.
ONE MORE TOUCH
Once I was finished I felt like this cute little ornament could use one more thing. My Ornament Exchange partner like traditional colors with silver glitter so I decided to add a mini-snowman and give him some glisten using DecoArt Glitter Paint.

The mini snowman came in a package with some of his winter friends at Hobby Lobby. He is very small and while his colors are pretty the addition of the silver glitter paint will make in sparkle in the lights on the Christmas tree. He fit perfectly into the center of the Mini Red and White Pom Pom Wreath Ornament.
This quick DIY Christmas Tree Ornament is really pretty on the tree, quick and easy to make with minimal cost involved. I’m off to make one for myself now!
