We are on the run up to Valentine’s day now so I thought I would share a couple of valentine themed posts including this Valentine’s Pom Pom Garland. I know not everybody makes a big deal at Valentine’s. My husband and I normally just cook a nice meal and watch a movie. We don’t really do gifts, sometimes I get flowers. But I do like to make the table look nice and decorate a little. This Valentine’s Pom Pom garland will look great hung up in the dining room while we have our meal.
This is a really cute and easy craft. You could even make it with the kids! First let’s see what you need to make them.
Red card/paper (mine was from my craft stash you can find red paper here)
First you need to make the pom poms. I made 3 long garlands with 10 pom poms one each. How many pom poms you need depends entirely on the length of/how many garlands you want.
Wrap the wool around you two fingers 20-30 times, not too tightly.
Cut the wool and then slip the loops from your fingers. Snip a small length of wool.
Tie it tightly around the middle of the loops.
Snip through all the loops and trim any long bits.
Fluff it up a bit and you have your first pom pom! Keep going until you have enough for your garland (I used 10 per garland).
Next using your cookie cutter as a stencil, draw round and cut out your hearts. You will need twice as many hearts as pom poms.
Thread a long length (as long as you want your garland) onto a needle and then thread the pom poms onto it. They won’t move by themselves so you don’t need to worry about fixing them.
Keep threading on your pom poms leaving even gaps between each one.
Stick a glue dot on to the back of one of your hearts in the middle. Sick it to the wool in between two pom poms.
Stick another heart on top. Keep going so your garland goes pom pom, heart, pom pom, heart.
And that’s it! You’re all done. I stuck my hearts for the garland to be hung vertically but you could stick them on sideways if you wanted to hang the garland horizontally.
I might make some more so I can hang them down in the windows.
I really love how cute these are! How do you feel about valentine’s? Are you a fan or do you think it’s all over-rated? Leave your comments right at the bottom of the page!
