How To Make PomPom Garlands

I love making and adding fun bits and bobs to a room and this pom pom garland is a easy and cheap way of doing so.

First of all i get out all my wool and choose 3 or 4 pretty colours.When i’m out and about i always get wool when its on offer instead of buying it all in one hit.

This is all my wool! x

Next up its time to start making your pom poms! You can either use the older way with 2 cardboard discs or you can use pom pom makers which are very easy and you can buy online.

This is what the PomPom makers look like.

I found a really good site explaining how to make the pom pom with cardboard discs :

But remember you dont have to follow the instructions exactly you can make the discs smaller if you want.

Here’s where you can buy the pom pom makers, you get two in a pack and you can choose the size you want.

The big pom pom makers: http://www.hobbycraft.co.uk/clover-pom-pom-maker-large-65mm-and-85mm/597113-1000

Once you have made all the pom pom that you want (for a good size garland i would make about 20) you can then begin threading the pompoms onto a large bit of wool.Use a big needle and try to go through the middle of the pompom.

Here's what it should look like when you thread them on.

Finally hang up your pompom garland and enjoy! x
