DIY Pom Pom Garland.



i saw the above felted ball garland over at The Land Of Nod for $34.99. i usually buy my felt balls here, but it's on back order. and i didn't want to wait so i went to hobby lobby and picked up some pom pom balls and gave it a go. 


what you'll need: a big needle, thread, and lots of colorful pom poms. start by threading your needle. after you have picked your color pattern you can begin stringing your pom poms. i let the little ones pick the colors and hand them to me, so there is no real pattern to mine at all. i just made sure there weren't two of the same color in a row. after i had strung about 7 feet worth, i tied off the ends. 







when we move over to the new house i am going to get the kids their own tiny tree to put upstairs in the hallway between their two bedrooms. i am going to decorate it with all the things that we make together. but you can put them anywhere. i am going to make a strand when my felt comes and hang them from the chandelier over our dining room table. ooo, pretty!


all this came in at a total of $2.99 plus tax. yippee!
