DIY Project - Pom Pom Garland

Christmas is just around the corner and everyone is decorating their homes for this favorite event!  This is a simple DIY project to add to your festive decor.  Or change the colors up and it can be decorations for a party, nursery, or anything imaginable.  Follow the directions below then share photos on Instagram and tag me @trendypuku, so I can see what you made.



  • Yarn
  • Scissors
  • Pom Pom maker (or any version of making pom poms)



  1.  Measure out the length of string you want to fill with pom poms.  I made mine two arm lengths.
  2. Using your pom pom making strategy, make a pom pom.  Watch the video below to see how I make my pom poms.  For years I wrapped the yarn around my fingers then tied it off, another option is to wrap the yarn around cardboard.
  3. Attach the pom poms to the long length of string.  Spread them out as much as you like or keep them close together.
  4. Give the pom poms a haircut.  The more you trim, the tighter of a pom pom you will get.  The less you trim, the shaggier it will be.  Be careful not to trim too much!  My pom poms are very shaggy.  I hardly did any trimming.  I will probably give them a good haircut next year and maybe add more pom poms.  That's the best part, you can do whatever you feel like!

I hope you found this tutorial helpful.  Leave me a comment of what type of DIY project you would like to do next.  Merry Christmas!
