Here at Pom Pom HQ (PPHQ for short) we have been enjoying pom poms on strings. We have dubbed them pom pom garlands, here is a picture of one:
If you have ever wondered how to better integrate pom poms into your life, a pom pom garland is one way. Decorate your walls, halls, hair, and trees! We made our first pom pom garlands for Unravel 2013, and they were a hit!
Since then said garlands have mostly been adorning various items in our studio… we have been pom pom hogging! So now we bring you pom poms, poms for the pom people! If you want to make your very own pom pom garland…
You will need:
– Yarn, we have used Jamieson’s Spindrift, which works very well, but of course most scrap yarn will do. Just avoid anything too silky.
– Bakers twine or string, or even some strong yarn!
– Scissors (we found small sharp scissors made pom making easier)
– Pom pom maker / cardboard
– Darning needle
We decided to make a rainbow garland, rainbows are nice.
Colours shown from top centre clockwise: Daffodil, Apple, Jade, Peacock, Aubretia, Raspberry, Sherbet, Poppy, and Pumpkin.
Pom poms on their way
Making pom poms is very quick and easy, we used a kit, but if you don’t have a pom pom making kit, you can use the cardboard circle method… here is a handy pom pom making guide:
We hope you enjoy your pom pom garlands! Pom on!
