Two obsessions this year….pompoms and hoop art. Literally can’t stop. Today I’m all about the pompoms. If you haven’t tried making pompoms yet, what are you waiting for? They’re crazy easy and take no time at all. No fancy tools required. It’s just as easy and fast to use your own hand. Seriously….See how easy it to go from this…
- yarn needles
Start by wrapping the yarn around three fingers. Ignore the mess….I was on a crafting and sewing binge and I have my supplies everywhere. Obviously.
I usually wrap it 50-60 times before sliding it off my fingers.
Slide the yarn off and lay it flat and then slip a piece of yarn underneath. Tie the yarn tightly around the middle.
Take your scissors and cut the loops in half on either side.
This is where it gets fun. Start trimming the pompom kind of like you’re giving it a haircut. Trim until it’s the size you want and the yarn is even all the way around. Now go and make 65 of these little sweeties. Turn on Netflix and start snipping.
Once you’ve got the number you need, take the yarn needle and start threading. Make sure the needle goes through the center or the pompoms can slide off. (True story).
Hang your garland!
Have you tried making pompoms yet? So much fun.

UPDATE- For all of you who wanted to know where I got my deer head, it came from HomeSense in Canada. I found a similar one here.
