I have kind of fallen in love with making pom poms. Some might say that I’m a little obsessed – especially if you come into my house. So, it only made sense to make a pom pom garland as a part of my Valentine’s Day decoration.
At Christmas, I created a colourful pom pom wreath. A wreath that still hangs on our front door…because of my previously stated obsession. There is something about these lovely little puff balls that speaks to me. Yes, it could be that my head of hair resembles a pom pom ball!
Whatever the reason, I love all things boho and this pom pom garland is add a lot of love to our home.
Valentine Decoration Idea – Pom Pom Garland
pom pom maker
yarn – pinks…whatever pink you like
This is such a super, duper simple craft to make. You need to begin by making a big pile of pom poms. I opted to make 10 dark pink, 10 light pink and 10 white pom poms. See what I said about making a big pile. Now, I picked up this pom pom making tool at Michaels’ and it has changed my pom pom life. If you don’t have the tool, check out my tutorial for making pom pom without the tool…it can be done.
Wrap a piece of coordinating yard, tightly, around the centre of the circle – where you just cut the yarn.
Now that the pom poms are made, it’s time to turn them into a garland. Cut a very long piece of yarn. This is going to be your garland, so measure the spot where you would like to hang your garland and cut the yarn 6 inches longer.
Feed all of the pom poms onto the garland. When they are all on the yarn, slide them into a position you like. Hang up your garland. I made ours into a big loop by tying the two ends together and hiding the knot under a pom pom.
I picked up this chalkboard a couple of years ago and I write a new message on it depending on the season. The garland added a nice touch to our Valentine’s Day vingette.
