DIY: pom pom garland

The hardcore, long term readers out there may vaguely be able to dredge up from the recesses of your mind that I spent a long time making pompoms a year or so back, in the hope of one day making them into a garland for christmas time. Today was that day. Never say I dont finish a project...

  3. Cuteness! They look so sweet across the mirror.

    (Probably a stupid question - did you link the poms with a needle and the thread? Or do they end up with a hollow middle?)

  4. No hollow middle, they are tied up with wool. I used a big long blunt needle used for a type of quilting, doubled the length of wool through it and just threaded the pom poms on. Because it's all wool the poms gripped it so I didn't need to tie knots to hold them in place. Hope that makes sense!

  6. What a great idea! I haven't made pom poms in years. I'll have to have a look through my wool stash for some Christmassy colours and make a few decorations myself. Thanks for sharing x x

  8. Love 'em! They look all cosy and xmasy... we have so many unfinished projects though, the problem with finishing something is that you have to start something else!

  9. I love it you could have it up all year; I think I might want to make one too, after the long list of other things!

  10. Love this! And it gives me faith that sometimes those long unfinished projects (of which I am also a victim) do eventually get sign off!
