Because oh what fun it is to….decorate! It’s officially December. Yay I can decorate without people hating.
Let’s roll on with our crafting selves and make all things Christmas. Today I want to share with you guys the easiest, simplest cave woman craft ever. I mean literally a 6 year old could make this. Bonus points for how cute it is too!
Yarn of your choice in 2+ colors
Yarn Needle (to make threading the Pom Poms easier to thread but totally not necessary)
Let’s do this!
- Cut a piece of yarn about 6 inches long.
- Using your salad fork, string the piece of yarn in one prong of your fork. One side of the thread will be on top and the other side on the bottom.
- Now using the big ball of yarn, start wrapping the yarn around the fork.
4. Wrap the fork between 50-70 times depending on how fluffy you want your Pom Pom to be.
5. After you’ve wrapped the yarn enough, take the original six inch piece of yard and tie it in a knot as tight as you can. You may have to pull the yard ball down a little towards the end of the fork to get a good knot.
6. At this point you will have a little ball like shape with two loops (one on each side of the knot). Using your scissors, slide them into the loop and cut.
7. Repeat for the other side.
We elected to go for Red, White and Green to stick with our “whimsical ” Christmas decor.
After you’ve made about 5 Poms of each color, use your yarn needle to string them onto a strand of yarn. A regular needle should work as well. Then…voila!!
I told you this was the easiest craft ever. This would even work as a craft to do with small children. The wrapping motion is simple and great for hand-eye development. We aren’t sure what we are going to do with our Pom Pom Garland right now but it’s looking rather fun on our mantle!
Make sure you pin our images to Pinterest to save this DIY Christmas Craft for later!!
