As I slowly decorate this plain white apartment I spend a lot of time looking for ideas. One of those was to try to ignore the wheat colored carpet in our bedroom and fill it with colors I love. It all started to come together when we chose a print for the wall which hopefully we will buy soon (though I think a vacuum cleaner will have to take priority), but I also wanted to make something too as a start. I saw this pom pom garland on Pinterest and suddenly I was seeing these festive poms everywhere.
I went with the super simple "hand wrapping" method after reading about 10 different ways to make them. You simply wrap the yarn around your fingers until it looks "poofy" enough. You slide it off and cut it off the roll and snip a long piece to tie the middle. After that you cut through the linked loops, and then trim as necessary to make it round. The trimming as necessary part is a bit messy, but its fun to give a pom pom a haircut.
Here are the instructions I used (substituting my hand for a fork).
