It has been a busy couple of weeks and the mission continues. I am slowly, but surely, working my way around the house trying to “finish” each room. One of last week’s projects that is happily adorning our sunroom is this pom-pom garland.
I was looking for a way to make the play area of our sun-room fun and playful yet adult, pretty, and easy to change so I went with this fabric pompom garland. It adds a little sass to the room, if I do say so myself. And when I am done with it, I can reuse it for party decor. Sweet.
Supplies you will need: fabric (any kind at all…that’s part of the fun); thread and needle; twine
A note about that grey shiny fabric…I bought the pants on sale at Target because they looked like fun. I rocked them at a Bon Jovi concert, then again in Vegas, and then decided I was done with them. But shiny grey fabric…I couldn’t just ditch it. I had to reuse it. Along with a fabric drop cloth I am milking for every penny.
Cut circles out of fabric…they don’t need to be exact, only roughly the same size. I cut 100 circles of each.
Assemble pom-poms: Fold one circle into quarters and stitch the bottom. Repeat with nine more circles, stitching each one onto the thread, until you have 10 in a row. Bring the thread through the first circle you attached and tie your knot.
Then fluff it out a bit.
Continue until you have all of your pom-poms done. I did 10 of one and 9 of another. Don’t be intimidated. Turn on some good music and you will whizz right through them.
Run a length of bakers twine, floss, or yarn through the center of each pom-pom. I took a picture of gold twine but changed my mind and went with black. Whatever floats your boat.
Space out the pom-poms about 10 inches apart, securing each with a dab of hot glue in the center.
Hang however you see fit.
Here is a snapshot of the kids enjoying some of the progress. I took out more of the toys and moved things around from the playroom I wrote about here. Same rules, just less stuff. (More about that transformation soon.)
