After packing the holiday decorations neatly away, I always enjoy clean, fresh decor heading into the new year. The chill outside keeps me indoors, cozy and warm. I’ve taken inspiration from the sparkle of snow to create this cozy and cheery hot cocoa corner! Pom pom garland is one of the easiest things to make and it adds softness and comfort as home or party decor! Have you made yarn pom poms recently?
Pom poms are a popular decor item right now and they’re so simple to make, even the kids will have fun making a pile! For this pom garland, I used this fluffy, creamy Buttercream Angel Hair yarn in white. You can use any yarn, really, but the thicker and/or fuzzy yarns will make a more plush pom pom.
1. To make the pom pom, simply wrap the yarn around and around your fingers, as shown. For a larger ball, I wrapped the yarn 50 times around three fingers. You can wrap more times or fewer and/or alter the number of fingers that you’re wrapping around to get different sizes.
2. Once you’ve wrapped the yarn, cut a 10″ length of yarn and wrap it horizontally around the whole wrapped packet of yarn. If you have wrapped around three fingers, adjusting to two fingers now will give you a little working space to get the yarn tie wrapped around and spaced in the center.
3. Pull the yarn tie tightly and make a knot. This tie is what holds the pom pom together, so the tighter the knot, the better.
4. Carefully slide your scissors inside the loops on the top half of the wrapped yarn and snip. Then, snip through the loops on the other half.
5. Fluff the pom pom and trim any yarn pieces that stick out unevenly.
Repeat to make a pile of fluffy little snowballs.
To turn the pom poms into a garland, take a length of yarn and thread the end through a yarn needle. Gently weave the needle through the center of each pom pom and space to your liking along the string of yarn!
