I’ve said it once, and I will say it again. (and again, and again) The holidays are my favorite time of year! One of the reasons for that is the ability to decorate my home cozier and slightly over the top. When else is it okay to drape greens + ribbons all over everything?! Never. Or maybe we should make that a trend. This little garland is the perfect transitional piece that can go from Thanksgiving to Christmas, easy peasy.
What you’ll need:
- Yarn, the softer and squishier the better! We used Premier Yarns – Mega Tweed in white.
- Pom Pom Maker – can be found near the crochet tools! Here is the one we used.
- Pine Cones (the cinnamon scented ones, because duh smells amazing.)
- Start by measuring out the length of your desired location! Then cut one piece of yarn to be your base of the garland!
- Then tie on your pine cones to your base by tying them around the top of the cone. We measured the space between each cone to be 20 inches. Leaving space between for the pom pom (10 inches)
- Create your poms! There are some poorly written directions on the back of the packaging of the maker. We found that if you are looking for perfect circular poms (which I was not, so don’t reference our photos:)) wrap the yarn tightly and neatly around the maker. Since I wanted big + organic looking poms, I wrapped a little looser and pretty wild.
- Then attach your poms to the base of the garland! 10 inches from each of the pine cones for ours!
Enjoy your new garland! They are so cute and would look perfect over the fireplace! Or even on a bare wall. When in doubt, just keep making them and layering them. 😉
