Craft Tutorial: Quickest & Easiest Pom Pom Trim
I’ve been seeing so many pom pom projects and products over the internet, and one of the things that I definitely wanted to make was pom pom trims and garlands. They are very easy and simple to make, but… no, I didn’t have enough time to indulge myself into becoming a pom pom making machine.
So… if you are short of time like me (I mean, who wouldn’t be at this time of the year?), but want to adorn your gifts or/and house with pom pom trims, follow my easiest and quickest tutorial ever!
What you’ll need:
- pom pom yarn. Yes. That’s it.
I’m using pom pom yarn (or yarn with pom poms. Anyone know what they are officially called?) that I bought from Tiger, which is really cheap Danish retail chain, sometime last year. They only cost £1 each at the time, but I’m not sure if they still have them at the same price. If you don’t live in the UK, I’m sure you can find the same type of yarn easily where you live (or so I’m hoping…).
1) Tie a knot over a pom (a bit fiddly to do because other poms get in your way).
2) Continue to tie a knot on every pom, and you’re done!
It’s sooooo quick to make pom pom trims this way. My only tip is to make a few short-ish trims and tie them together if you’re after really long one. Because pom poms take on lives of their own (well, sort of) and they try to make you scream in frustration by getting in your way. Yes, really.
I used the pom trims for garlands and for gift wrapping (like the photo at the very top). Am I missing anything? Is there any place left that I should put more poms in the house? Mr T says no, and I’m well satisfied! Anyways, hope you enjoyed the tutorial, and happy pom trim making!
