Hey everyone! Now we are just a few weeks away from Valentine’s Day so I don’t feel totally crazy doing another decor post! I was planning out my week and turned the page and BAM! February is next month…how did that happen?
Anyways, I got the idea for the Pom Pom garland from Pinterest (where many a light bulb moment is had), but since I didn’t need it for a birthday or photo backdrop I thought Valentine’s Day would be the perfect theme to start with! I mostly knit with only animal fiber now (amen!) but I do still have a lot of acrylic on hand and Michael’s had a huge yarn sale at the beginning of the month and thought this would be a perfect for use for it.
- Pom Pom maker (or you can google how to make yourself one, but the $7 investment is WELL worth it!)
- Yarn in festive colors (I had magenta, baby pink, and red)
I have 3 big and 2 small pom poms on my garland. I made the big ones with 2 colors at a time and went back and forth on each pom pom maker half to ensure a nice, big fluffy one!
After you do both sides, you cut along the groove..
use a spare length of yarn to secure and separate the two halves and woohoo!
A completed pom pom! Repeat as many times as you want, I did it 6 times but only ended up using 5, because I’m a visual person and most of the time things don’t make sense until I see it haha.
String them together on one long length of yarn
Finally, hang up and enjoy!
I’m thinking about doing a rainbow one for St. Patty’s Day or maybe one in pastels for Easter. But then again, I’ll be 8 months pregnant and probably not feeling it LOL.
Anyways, get out there and make something pretty!
