There is something about a woolly pom pom that takes us right back to our child hood and we are pleased to see a bit of a pom pom renaissance going on, with gorgeous pom pom related interior decorations popping up around the internet.
Jumping on the band wagon here is our super simple tutorial on making a pom pom garland using the fabulous Clover pom pom makers, thanks to Clover we no longer have to cut templates out the back of cereal boxes with their superb easy to use pom pom makers.
Step 1: Prepare.
Step 2: Begin wrapping the yarn around the arch.
Step 3: Keep wrapping the yarn around the arch until its covered.
Step 4: Close the Pom Pom maker and repeaat on the other side
Step 5: Once both sides are wrapped in yarn begin cutting through the yarn using the centre of the Pom Pom maker as a guide.
Step 6: Once you’ve cut all around the Pom Pom maker wrap some thread around the Pom Pom and secure tightly with a knot. Step 7: Once you have tied the thread securely, open up the Pom Pom maker and pull the sides apart. Voila your finished Pom Pom!
Step 8: Once you have a collection of Pom Poms you can make a garland!
