One of my very favorite things to do is craft. When I’m crafting, I’m in my element and one of the best times of the year to craft is during the holiday seasons. I love buying craft supplies at dollar stores because they’re obviously incredibly inexpensive! Today as I was walking around our local dollar store I noticed some cute Halloween colored pom poms. I immediately knew I wanted to make something with them and my mind started churning thinking about all the things I could do with them. I have seen some adorable wool pom pom garlands on Pinterest and online stores, but they’re usually very expensive. Even though these pom poms weren’t wool, I figured I could still get the same effect. As a result, I decided to run with it. After all, they were only $1! You can’t beat that. So here’s what I decided to make:
So, if you want to make your own version, here’s what you’ll need to make it:
– Various colored pom poms (I purchased mine from the dollar store)
– Embroidery thread (Again, I purchased mine from the dollar store)
The first thing you’ll want to do is separate the pom poms into colors and put them in the pattern that you want on your garland.
Next, thread your needle with your embroidery floss.
Take your pom poms and push your needle through each one, then push the pom pom down your thread as far as you want. The farther you push it down the thread, the longer your garland will be.
Now, you can make your garland two different ways. You can either push the pom poms up against each other so they’re touching, or you can leave a little space between each one. I liked how it looked with them spaced out a little more so I did it that way.
After you’ve either used all your pom poms, or put as many as you want on your garland, you’re done. You don’t even have to tie a knot at the end if you don’t want, because the pom poms are so tightly threaded on the string that they won’t fall off.
I love the finished product. You could hang this on your window, your stair case, or your mantle. Either way it will look adorable in your home this Halloween and will add some color to your decor. Perhaps the best part about this craft is that it cost me $3 to make!
