How To – Giant Pom Pom Garland

How To – Giant Pom Pom Garland

This garland uses one whole ball of yarn per pompom. Fortunately, you do not need to wind the yarn onto a pompom maker… because that would take forever! You simply use the ball of yarn as is.

Pom Pom Garland Main

You Will Need:

  • For the pompoms: 1 ball of aran-weight acrylic yarn in the following colours: spice, teal, bluebell, aspen, fondant
  • Scissors
  • 2 metres (2 yards)
  • gold ribbon, plus extra ribbons for decoration

Method:

  1. Wrap a 50cm (20 in) length of yarn around centre of ball. Tie tightly. Wrap and tie again, this time with a double knot.Giant Pom Pom Garland 1
  2. Cut through loops of yarn on one side. There will be really small loops in centre of the ball, so make sure you snip all of them.Giant Pom Pom Garland 2
  3. The ball of yarn now looks like a giant tassel. Cut through loops on other side. Shake ball to leave a messy mass of yarn.Giant Pom Pom Garland 3
  4. Trim any long strands so ball looks pompom-like. Keep ties round centre separate. Use ties to fix pompoms to ribbon.Giant Pom Pom Garland 4

Tip

This garland is shown above an unlit fireplace for display purposes only. Acrylic yarn and an open fire are never a good mix!
