pom pom garland...banner thingy...

09 April 2013

remember when i made these cute little flowers? and then when i said i might have to make myself a garland of them? behold:

(probably the crappiest picture ever, no? i apologize.)

Saturday morning i got my craft on while watching General Conference (a broadcast for my church, it's a semi-annual thing. learn more here). this is what my little craft table looked like:

how do you use up an entire bundle of yarn in one sitting?

you make a pom pom garland.

go check out Geri's post on how to make these fun things over >>here!<<

you can't really tell, but i did alternated between big and small pom poms on my garland. my big ones were the size of what Geri calls her small ones. did i loose ya? in other words, on my garland above i used 20 big pom poms (3 fingers, wrap yarn 90x), and 19 small pom poms (2 fingers, wrap yarn 45x). hope that helps! it was totally fast and fun. the thing that took me the longest was simply hanging it up!

*have you made these cute things yet?

*have you ever made something with yarn before? it's okay if you haven't :) i don't judge

  1. You're so crafty - I love it! I've never made pom poms, but I love crocheting blankets and scarves. This past Christmas I crocheted scarves for my 3 nieces and my oldest sister - and then afterward, everyone else wanted one too! So I am (slowly because I'm busy) making a bunch for family and friends.
    I always feel so accomplished anytime I finish a craft - it's a great feeling! I'm sure you experience that too!
