I made these pom pom garlands around Christmas and wasn’t going to do a how-to because I thought they were just for christmas season. And then I couldn’t bear to take them down with all of the other holiday decorations, so I just casually draped them on the kitchen chalkboard.
And you know what? I decided pom pom garland is for all seasons. So here you go – a tutorial for how to make these year-round-put-them-anywhere-make-a-bunch-because-you’ll-love-them pom pom garlands.
Here’s what you’ll need:
chunky yarn (about 3 rolls) / pom pom makers (2 sizes) / embroidery thread / upholstery needle / scissors
TO MAKE THE POM POMS
wrap the yarn round and round the first side / then the second
trim the center yarn / cut a piece of yarn
tie yarn through center of pom maker / pull apart
trim long pieces of yarn and fluff
TO MAKE SMALL POM POM GARLAND
cut yarn to desired length
thread needle and knot the end / stitch through center of pom and through yarn
you can stitch a few times back and forth to make sure the pom is secure
in between poms, run the needle through the center of the yarn, then stitch on the next pom
Then hang anywhere and everywhere!
TO MAKE THE LARGE POM POM GARLAND
make large poms using this pom maker
cut three long pieces of yarn (in desired finished length) / tie knot in top and tape to tabletop to hold
loosely braid yarn / knot the end
run the needle through the center of the pom
stitch onto braided yarn (a few stitches to hold securely)
in between poms, run the needle through the center of the braid. Then stitch on poms in desired spacing.
