One decorative item I love to use and make affordably is garland. I like using it throughout the year and most during the Christmas season.
Last year, I shared a simple foil garland (here) that took only a few things to make. I was looking through some more of my ribbons and found pom pom trim I had planned to use for a pillow. Unfortunately it was too short to use for garland and would be too expensive to buy the length I wanted. So I thought about how to make a version of my own. I grabbed some pom poms and embroidery thread and ended up with this.
You will need…
- sewing needle
- pom poms (amount will depend on how long you want your garland to be). I used one bag of large pom poms and one of small pom poms.
- embroidery thread (I used one bundle for my entire garland).
You will follow these simple instructions to make the garland…
- Thread your sewing needle.
- Pull the needle through the pom pom.
- Pull the pom pom down the thread.
- Repeat this process until you have filled the thread to your liking. I used the large and small size with no specific pattern.
- Tie both ends of with double knots.
I just wrapped my garland around my grapevine wreath to make it a bit more festive. You could also wrap it around a christmas tree, use it for Christmas gifts or hang it on a mantel. There are many color options and sizes. I kept mine neutral but there are so many fun ways you could make this pom pom garland.
It costs very little to make and adds pretty texture to any space. My favorite kind of project!
I am honored to be over at Craftberry Bush today sharing a tour of our home all decorated for Christmas and a short tutorial for these yarn wrapped ornaments. I would love for you to come and take a visit to see it all. Thanks so much for stopping by!
