DIY Valentines Pom Pom Garland

1. Wrap the yarn around a fork horizontally about 15 times
2. Wrap the yarn vertically three times and then tie a knot 
3. Cut the loops of yarn
4. Repeat until you have enough pom pom's for a garland line, then using invisible thread, thread the pom poms through the invisible thread to make the line of garland.

  1. Ha! Ok I led a craft night last night and I did pompoms and I made these donuts to wrap the thread around etc. and they were kinda labour intensive.... And NOW I see this. Curses... I use this next time!

  6. Super cute! I used to make something like this. You made the little pom pom and then glued googly eyes on it and it was called a "Fit"...when you were angry about something, you could just pick it up and "throw a Fit!" without doing any damage while getting your anger out!

  7. This is adorable! Such a great idea, but I will have to save it for next year...I just don't have time before Valentine's day! It would be cute for other holidays too!

  8. Love this idea! I have been wanting to make pom poms for some time but didnt want to buy a pom pom maker or construct my own. This is the perfect solution! I wonder if it would work if you used a bigger serving fork? Awesome post.
