DIY pompom garland

DIY pompom garland

well, pompom week got a bit sidetracked by my cold, but its back!  this is another quick project – this one took me an hour, start to finish.

DIY pompom garland

i started by making a handful of pompoms in 3 sizes, using my pompom maker.  i made 13 pompoms, just enough to stretch across my mantel.

i used a plastic yarn needle and threaded some yarn through it.

before stringing the pompoms, i put them in the random order i wanted.  to string the pompoms together, i made sure to run the needle through the middle of each pom (otherwise they’ll fall off!).

the poms string really easily, and slide along the yarn smoothly so i can adjust the pons however i want, evenly spaced or not.

i tied a simple loop knot on each end of the yarn and hung the garland up on my mantel (i have a nail on each end to add a garland when i’m in the mood).

how fun is that?!  there are so many variations on this garland: different colors for different holidays, packed in tighter for a solid garland of pompoms, different patterns, layered with other garlands – so many choices!

quick, easy, inexpensive – my kind of project for a simple update!

    Super cute. I love the pop of green/blue color against the mantel. I especially like the framed barn wood but what is the “head” of the antlers?
