I’m literally obsessed with pompoms, and this is one of the little projects I have been working on for Autumn!
I picked up these 2 coloured yarns from Boyes at £2 each (the rust and green are perfect Autumn colours to me) and the pompom maker from Yorkshire Trading. It came in a set of 3 different size, and I can’t remember how much the set was, but it was one of my best investments! 🙂
Once you have your yarn and pompom maker, make sure you have a really sharp pair of scissors and a 5mm crochet hook and you’re all set. 🙂 Below is a step by step visual on how to make the pompoms, but the pompom maker should come with instructions as well.
Be careful not to get too carried away when trimming the pompom, you can end up with a little pea in your hands! haha
Than I have made my garland line by crocheting a chain, it makes it more visible and strong, and it is kind of easy to attach the pompoms and be sure they won’t move.
Once your line is ready, place all the little pompoms in the position you want them and slip stitch before placing a double knot in, to ensure your pompoms won’t ever move.
Cut your ends and your garland is ready! 🙂
I have added a couple of pompoms to my candle holders as well, just to tie it all in!! 🙂
Easiest project to make, loads of left over yarn for other projects, as you can add pompoms to anything!! Might look into embellishing a throw next, with some contrast coloured pompoms or a scarf like Paige has during her Craftober Challenge, follow the link to see video – Paige Joanna Craftober Videos! 🙂
I leave you with my fireplace, decorated for Halloween (you might think it’s not much, but this is my first effort and I was really thrilled with it! :)) and hang in there, Friday is around the corner! 🙂
Until we meet again,
