How To Make A Pom Pom Garland

*this post contains affiliate links

There are so many cute pom pom garlands on Pinterest these days, so
I went on Amazon to find one, only the length wasn’t long enough, 
or the pom poms weren’t the right color, 
or the  right size.

Here’s the deal….
That’s the life of a diyer. Seriously.
When you can make things to your specifications,  and it’s a simple and inexpensive project,
then why not make it yourself?
So I did.
And you can too!
Here's how:

Gather your supplies:

Pom Poms (I used 1 1/2")
Thick thread
sewing needle (one that has an eye large enough for your thread to go through)
ruler
pair of scissors.



Cut thread to length 
Cut your threat to the length you desire plus about 10 inches
On one end, fold the end of the thread over (about 3”) and tie a knot.

Sew pom poms on thread
Thread your needle, doubling your thread (because it’s long) and put the needle and thread through the pom pom and pull the thread through to almost the end.

If your thread is thick and holds the pom pom in place without sliding when you hold up the string, you can skip the next 2 steps(photos)


Going back the opposite way, put the needle and thread through the pom pom again and pull the thread.

Now, put the needle and thread through the pom pom again the opposite way again.

You should be able to slide the pom poms a bit, but they should not be able to slid freely when the garland is hung.
I slid my pom poms so the edges of the pom poms were 2” apart.

Keep adding pom poms until you fill up your length of thread.

How can you  actually use this?
A pom pom garland would look so cute anywhere...
Over a mirror,
on your mantel,
on a bookcase,
in a doorway,
or hung on a chalkboard,

which is where mine ended up in the foyer.
It may get moved to the mantel in our Family Room, or I might make another one...
Who knows?

Hope you’ll stop by next time to see  how I dressed up this vignette for Valentine’s day.
