How to make a pom-pom garland for your home decor

Decorating with a Pom-Pom Garland

Decorating your home is all about adding your own personal touch to your favorite style. So, if you are a creative, like me, even if you are just a beginner, you like to incorporate decor pieces that you have made or had an influence on.

Pom-Pom Garland Tutorial

Pom-pom garlands are an easy way to do just that because there are so many ways to vary them and make them different. For example, you can use different:

  • colors or color combinations of yarn
  • yarn types
  • ways to string them together

But one other thing that a pom-pom garland does for your decor is adds texture to make a room feel warm and relaxed.

Placing Your Pom-Pom Garland

Some areas you can display your pom-pom garland are:

  • Your mantle
  • Stair railing
  • Over a large picture frame
  • Strung on a wall
  • On a console table

Pom-Pom Garland Tutorial

Step #1: Make your pom-pom balls.

Pom-Pom Balls

Get yourself a pom-pom maker, they come in a set of 4 sizes, are inexpensive, and make the best pom-poms.

Then head on over to see my guide on making your pom-pom balls in just a few easy steps.

You can make all of your pom-poms the same size or combined different sizes on the same garland.

Step #2: Measure and cut your garland strand.

Measure Your Pom-Pom Garland

Decide what length you want your garland and cut your strand of whatever material you are using accordingly.

Be sure to measure twice and cut once (a lesson my husband reminds me of often).

Some materials you can use as your strand are:

  • Yarn, either a single strand or braided
  • Twine
  • Cording
  • LED wire lights (my favorite:pictured below)
  • Ribbon
  • Tulle

You can also add large beads, pine cones, or other items and string them in between your pom-poms.

Step #3: Tie on your pom-poms

Place Your Pom-Poms

Lay out your strand on the floor. Then arrange your pom-poms by placing them in the order and spacing of your preference.

Tie Your Pom-Poms

Once your pom-poms are set the way you like them you can begin to tie them onto your strand.

I like to start in the middle and work my way out but you can use whatever process that works best for you.

Cut the Long Ends

Finally, after all of your pom-poms have been tied you can trim the long yarn pieces so that they blend in with the rest of the pom-pom.
