Pom pom Garland

Pom Pom garlands are super easy to make.
In fact they are a great way to use up left over yarn.

What You'll Need:
- Yarn
- Fork (Mine was a larger salad serving fork so I could get larger pom pom's)
- Scissors
- String to hang them on (I used bakers string/twine)
-Needle or scotch tape ( for threading the pom pom's on the string)


The How To:
- The first thing you'll need to do is wrap your yarn around the fork about 60-65 times, then cut the yarn.

- Now cut a longer piece of yarn (I did mine around 5-6 inches long).

- Then take that 5-6 inch piece of yarn and thread it through the bottom of the middle gap in the fork.

- Then tie it tightly around the middle of your bunch of yarn (shown in picture below).

- Now, slide the yarn off the fork.

- Then take your scissors and cut through the loops that are on the edge of your yarn 'ball'.
  Keep cutting until all the loops are cut.

- After you cut all the loops feel free to give the ball a little 'hair cut' and trim any long pieces off and trim it up so it looks more even.

- Repeat the steps above until you have the desired amount of pompom's.

- Next thread your needle on your string (for thicker string using a yarn needle may be easiest) or tape the end of your string to make it so you can string your pompoms on the string.

- Now just poke the needle (or taped end of your string) through the center of your pompom's.

- You are now ready to hang your pompom garland!
