Pom Pom Garland

On Tuesday we made pom pom garlands. They are very simple to make and require only pom poms, a needle and some thin twine. A friend of mine stopped by last week with a plastic bin full of pom poms leftover from craft projects with her now grown children.

There will be a lot of pom pom crafts in our future (thank you Kathy!).

I cut the twine length to hang from above our sliding glass doors, tied a knot in each end and that's it. The kids just keep threading pom poms onto the twine, pushing them down one at a time. You do not need knots in between each pom pom, they just magically stay in place. I did this craft with 3 year olds and a five year old - you are using a sharp needle so keep an eye on them. Somehow we had no poking incidents. Encourage them to thread through the middle of the pom pom. These would be adorable hanging down from your mantle as well!
