This year, instead of going with a traditional garland to decorate our home, we decided to go the crafty route and make our own. Maggie came up with the great idea of sticking with our yarn theme and created a festive pom pom garland
Yarn in multiple colors
The pom pom garland is fairly simple to make. To begin with, you should make a number of pom poms in various colors (preferable Christmas colors). The amount you make will depend on how long you wish to make the garland and how many pom poms you wish to string on it
Once again, here is the hilarious video that Maggie put together on how to make a pom pom:
Next, you measure your space and cut your Jute. You will want to add a few inches so the it can hang a little lower
After measuring and cutting your jute, string it through the yarn needle and proceed to insert it into the center of the pom pom. This will take a little practice, as the center of the pom pom (where it comes together) is usually on the tight side. So use those muscles!
Continue stringing until you have added all of your pom poms and are satisfied with the final look. Make a loop at both ends of the jute for easy hanging
And there you have it! Hang it up and enjoy!
