Pom Pom Garland is EVERYWHERE.
Really, I think even the auto shops have them..hahahaha.
Isn’t it funny when someone says everyone is talking about it or it’s everywhere and you think.. ah yeah no!
Okay, so it might not be everywhere but they are pretty popular and super easy to make.
BONUS- It’s a great way to salvage some leftover yarn! WHOOHOO!
- SOMETHING TO TWIST THE YARN AROUND
- THAT’S IT!
Wrap yarn around any item you choose. I used a wooden spoon from the kitchen. I know some use a fork. It just depends on the size you want to do.
Wrap around 50 times. Now I am going to be honest with ya. I use to be a perfectionist but have since given it up. I didn’t count these, I just guestimated. If you want yours exact, count.
Tip- The tighter you make it, the harder it may be to take off.
Cut off the yarn and take off the tool you used to wrap with.
With a long piece of additional yarn, tie off the wrapped yarn in the center. Leave a long end to start the next pom pom. This is what will connect the pom poms together. If you want exact spacing between poms measure each time.
Once the ball is tied, take scissors on each side and cut through the loops.
Start your new pom pom with the long piece of yarn end in step 4. Wrap it around and then start with additional yarn on top. Continue as previously described.
Try and keep the cat away from the yarn! I tried to sneak this project into another room, and I think she smelled the yarn or something. Maybe she could hear the yarn being twisted????
Make as many pom poms as your little heart desires.
Now Hang up your cute garland!
It took me 15 minutes to make this, and it’s just “perfect” for me.
BONUS TIP- If you are looking for cheap yarn, usually a thrift store has a great supply of extra yarn. Many people have great ideas about crafting but tons of it gets donated when reality sets in.
Do you have any ways to use up extra yarn?
