Valentine's Day pom-pom garland you can make in a snap
Craft a simple pom-pom garland in reds, pinks and aquas to add a touch of Valentine's Day cheer to your home. Here are two easy ways to whip up pom-poms in no time for your colorful garland.
- Colorful yarn
- Sewing scissors
- Pom-pom makers (available online or at the craft store) or large serving fork
Technique #1: pom-pom maker
With your pom-pom maker open, start by wrapping your yarn around 1 side of your pom-pom maker.
Continue to wrap your yarn around to the other side of the pom-pom maker.
Once you have wrapped the pom-pom maker completely with yarn, clip the sides together.
Cut along the outer edge of the circular pom-pom maker with your scissors.
Using another piece of yarn, thread the yarn around the outer part of the pom-pom maker to tie the pom-pom together. Wrap tight and tie off.
Unclamp the pom-pom maker to release the pom-pom.
Trim up the edges of the pom-pom and repeat steps #1-7 to create more pom-poms in various colors and sizes for your garland.
Technique #2: large fork
For another way to create a pom-pom without the use of a pom-pom maker, use a large serving fork to wrap string around. Using the center space between the prongs, tie off the pom-pom and slip off the fork.
Cut the top and bottom loops of the pom-pom as they slide off the fork. Trim up the pom-pom to a rounded size as needed.
Once you have made enough pom-poms, use a needle on a thin piece of yarn or thread to place the pom-poms on a garland.
When threading the pom-poms on the garland, you can arrange the pattern in terms of shape and color as desired. You can also space out the pom-poms to your liking.
Hang your festive garland to add a touch of Valentine's Day cheer to your party or home decor!
