The early Christmas season is my favourite time to shop for a few new holiday decor and get an early crack at Christmas shopping. I came across a very simple but really pretty pompom garland in red, threaded along a white rope and I dropped it into my cart.
I kept shopping and after sometime with the garland in my cart I realized, I can make this for like $5 dollars, why am I buying it for $24 dollars? So I promptly returned it to its place on the shelf and bought a $3.00 roll of red yarn.
So I was wrong. I didn’t make it for $5.00. I made it for $3.00.
To make a festive pompom garland you will need:
- Roll of yarn in your desired colours
- Rope or twine to hang the pompoms from
To make a really simple and messy style pompom (those are my favourite) wrap the yard around your hand several times.
Side the bundle off your hand and secure with more yard around the middle of your bundle. Tie it as tight as you can make it. it should look like the image below.
Snip the loops with your scissors and fluff the pompom. Trim away any strings that look uneven. Keep a couple long strings in tact for the next step.
Finally with those long pieces, tie them tightly to the rope or twine you are hanging them from. Space them as desired. I made this garland with 5 large pompoms. You can add as many as you like and adjust their sizes to achieve the look you are going for.
A smaller pompom may be easier to thread on to your twine with a craft large needle.
I had recently hung my grandmothers old mirror in our dining room and I decided to dress it up for the holidays with the garland. I am pleased with the result and I plan on reusing this craft for Valentine’s Day and birthdays. I am excited to go FULL Christmas soon!!
