There is really no step-by-step instructions to make a pom pom garland.  Its so easy, all you need is pom poms, an embroidery needle with a large opening and string or baker’s twine.

Felt Garland DIY

Simply thread your needle and then pierce the middle of each pom pom and pull your needle through the other end of the pom pom. Easy! Deciding which kind of pom poms to use for your garland or any pom pom crafts will probably be the hardest part.  Pom Poms actually can be handmade or store bought in a few different materials.

Felt poms are more dense and are a bit more difficult to hand make.

Yarn pom poms are the most common and are the easiest to make by hand.  You can simply use your fingers or purchase a pom pom making tool, which makes it go much faster.

I am actually kind of obsessed with pom poms and I keep several glass jars of them in my studio. When I’m having a bad day, I just put my hand in the jar and squeeze.  It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.  Yeah – I just admitted that!
