A big thank you to Vanessa from Houzz.com for the great write up and feature of this post on 30 Beautifully Inventive DIY Christmas Decorations!
Don't these cheerful pom poms make you smile just looking at them? I got inspired after looking at the adorable Land of Nod Christmas catalog where the rooms were decorated with this fun pom pom garland. (The same catalog I made my whimsy trees out of.)
I told you my theme this year for decorating is "childlike and whimsical". My whole family is loving the bright, cheerful colors.
And if you have little kids (like I do) they can't break them or really cause much damage. (I have a whole kid-friendly tree up in my house! )
And they are so, so simple to make you can do it relaxing in front of your favorite Christmas movie. Or if you have an older child, they could help, too, since yarn needles aren't sharp.
All you need are pom poms in whatever color you like, yarn, and a yarn needle.
I made a couple of sets-these with fun, bright green eyelash yarn, and another all white strand that looks like puffy little snowballs. My youngest son only managed to yank them off the tree once (so far...)
- Here's what you do:
- Thread your yarn needle with yarn.
- Push the needle through one pom pom at a time, spacing them until you have a strand in the length you want.
- Knot the end.
- You're done! (See I told you it was so easy-- you barely needed this tutorial! )
So much fun!
Next, I'm excited to show you some handmade, cheap, unbreakable, kid-friendly ornaments I've been making!
