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.
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!
