So prepare yourself if you want to make pompons
First you have to choose different colors for your decoration from pompons. Three to five must be enough to achieve a stylish and colorful effect. We recommend that you take enough time for this step. Compare the interaction of different color palettes.
Take into consideration the space you want to decorate with the pompoms.
For decoration with pompons you usually choose between 3 and 5 colors
You will need these materials for a garland of pompoms
We describe in our guide how to make a garland of pompoms. Here are the required materials:
- Business card or a small piece of cardboard,
- Needle and thread.
In the first step you wrap the yarn for the pompons around a small box!
Instructions: make a pompom and make a garland out of it
Wrap the yarn around a business card or cardboard of the same size. Do this until you have a thick layer of it. You can experiment with this stage of crafting. Try different thickness layers. This also depends on the thickness of your pompom! Decide for yourself how big it should be.
The size of the layer depends on the size of the pompons
Once you have wrapped the desired layer of yarn, take the scissors. Now cut at the desired location as shown in the image below.
Now it continues with the work! Next, cut another piece of yarn. In our instructions this is about 30 cm long. Pull this piece of yarn between the cardboard and the yarn wrapped around it. How to do that roughly can be seen in the picture below.
Would so much yarn be enough for your pompom?
Next, carefully remove the bundle of yarn from the box. Now use the ends of the 30 cm long yarn to tie them together. These two steps of the crafting process are shown on the next two photos!
The bundle for the pompom must be removed very carefully from the box
Tie very carefully so that a good structure is created!
Cutting the loop tips is a very important part of crafting
Next you should cut off the tips of the loops of the bundle. You have already made a pomp!
Now all you have to do is level the tips with the help of the scissors. The flat surface is very important for the appealing result!
This bobble is almost done!
Now you just have to adjust the tips with scissors
Now make several pompoms according to the same principle. Step by step you can master many of them in different colors. The sizes can vary as desired. In our example, there are always the same big pompons to see. However, the different sizes would provide an interesting dynamic!
This is how the finished pompoms look like in the ideal case
Make the garland of pompoms
Now take the needle and the thread in your hand. The latter should be either neutral or in a shade similar to the yarn. Pass the needle through the middle of the various pompoms and attach them one by one to the chain.
The most pleasant part is the tying of the pompoms
And that’s the almost finished garland made of pompoms
Once you have attached all the pompons to the chain, release at each end about 15 cm of thread. If you then hang the garland, you can handle the distances between the different pompoms. There are also variations for garland with pompoms, which are very close to each other. Such can be found in some of the pictures below.
At this point you just have to tie the ends of the garland together
Finally, hang the garland at the desired location in the room. In this case it represents a colored accent in front of a white wall. This solution is chosen very often. In our case, the background is in a great shade and there are more green patterns on it. The colorful chain brings extra mood and spread festive mood in the room. Also for Christmas this idea could be suitable!
