Happy Sunday evening everyone! Today we are here with a quick and cozy blog project. I have a cute pom pom garland from Target in my office/craft room and have always been interested in making some of my own for the Etsy shop. I saw these pom poms at the Dollar Tree and knew I had to give it a try! My mom provided the string/twine for the project and was my creative consultant throughout!
The first thought was to use a needle and string the pom poms on the twine, but we discovered that there was no core to these pom poms so trying to pull a needle and string through was actually just making them unravel. My mom then had the smart idea to tie the string around the pom poms and tie several knots tight enough around the pom poms that they re-pommed around the string. This didn't work on the tiniest of the pom poms in the pack so we stuck with the medium and larger sized ones. I wanted the garlands to be about 6 ft long so it really helped me to line up the pom poms in a row to keep the sizing correctly. The photo below was from before we had to take out the smallest ones!
I finished the garlands off with a loop on each end for hanging and then tied some smaller pieces of twine/string in between the pom poms to add some additional interest. I also added a dot of glue on each knot to keep everything secure.
And here are the 2 pom pom garland varieties! I bought 6 packs of pom poms in all so I was able to make 3 of the darker-toned ones and 3 of the pastel ones.
I packaged these up with some clear bags and a topper with a label.
And that's all for today friends! This was a very quick and satisfying project if you're looking for a crafty project that you'd don't have to get too invested in. These garlands are up on the shop now if you are interested!
