Nerd Crafts: London Underground Welcome Sign

Supplies:
*Cardboard strip
*Blue felt
*Red yarn
*Foam wreath
*Scissors
*Glue Gun
*White acrylic paint and brush
*Ribbon {to hang wreath}

*Step one:  Make LOTS of pom-poms!  I measured out about 66 to go around the entire wreath.  Three for each row going around.  I ended up using the entire roll of yarn.  I wrapped all the pom-poms in about an hour.  Then went back and cut and trimmed then for about another 30 minutes. {Pom-pom tutorial}
*Step two:  Begin hot gluing pom-poms to the wreath.  I did three per row, making sure not to let any of the green show throw.  You can fluff as you go.
*Step three:  When I got almost to the middle I wrapped my cardboard in my blue felt and glued to the middle of the wreath.  Learn from my mistake and get a larger than 8x10 inch felt sheet sold at Michael's. Try a fabric store. As you can see I have a seam in mine.
*Step four:  Paint on your WELCOME letters and let dry.
*Step five:  Glue on ribbon to the back for hanging.
*Step six:  Hang on your front door and enjoy!
