Tutorial For Pom-pom Garland

Hello everyone,

just getting into the swing of Christmas and I've been making a few homemade pressies and I thought I'd share this one with you! Ages ago I bought this yarn from a car boot and was at a little bit of a loss of what to make with it!

But today I have made 3 garlands, so easy peasy and quick to make.

Thought I'd do a quick tutorial for you.

1.Select your yarn. Mine looks a bit like candyfloss.

2.Wrap the yarn around your fingers, I wrapped mine 40 times around 3 fingers3.Carefully slip the yarn off your fingers and tie a piece of yarn around the middle of your bundle.

4.Snip though the ends of one side of the pom pom , and then the other.

5. Fluff out the pom pom with your fingers. At this point it may look a little bit miss-shapen but don't worry. You just need to trim around the ball of yarn with your scissors!

That's it! It's as simple as that!I made 10 pom-poms for my garland.

6.I then threaded my pom-poms onto crochet cotton leaving a 15cm gap between each pom-pom bauble.I also allowed 20cm at each end for tying.

Just the kind of quick project you need at this time of year.I'm going to make some tiny ones for my tree next!

I like that idea - I have some yarn similar to that somewhere in a snowball white. Shall hunt that out & see how it goes :)
