How to Make a Giant Pom-Pom Garland
skeins of thin yarn in different colors (you'll need 1 skein of yarn for every 4" diameter pom-pom)
thick white yarn, for hanging
Cut Cinching Strand
Use scissors to cut a strand of yarn approximately 10 inches in length. This strand will be used to properly size each skein.
Cinch the Skein
Use this strand to cinch the center of the skein by pulling tight and knotting, creating the look of two equal halves. Once the ends of the yarn are cut, one half will become the solid ball and the other half will become the loose yarn strands that will create the pom-pom.
Once both ends of the skein are cut, the cinching strand will keep the skein intact while the yarn becomes loose and shaggy. Start cutting each end of the skein.
When the two ends of the skein are cut, the strands will appear random. For a more uniform look, trim the strands to size in a ball shape.
Create a Hanger
Cut a 10-inch strand of yarn in a contrasting color, then loop it through the top of the pom-pom, knot and secure. This will be used to tie the pom-pom in place when you create your garland. Repeat the above the steps to create as many pom-poms as you want for a festive party garland.
