  • Medium weight 2 ply yarn in color of your choice
  • Fine gauge single ply yarn
  • Fork
  • Scissors


  • Start by wrapping the yarn around a fork approximately 40-50 times.
  • Next, take a good strong quality yarn to tie around the center of the wrapped fork.
  • Tie a single knot and gently remove the wrapped yarn from the fork.
  • Pull the center yarn tightly and add a double knot to secure in place.
  • Using a pair of sharp scissors begin to clip all of the formed loops.
  • Onto the fun part, give that DIY pom pom a haircut so that all the cut edges are about the same length.
  • Continue on and make as many as you want for your pom pom garland.

How to make a Pom Pom Garland

  • To form the garland, join each pom pom using a fine gauge single ply white yarn.
  • To start, unravel a long long piece of yarn – you will double it up in making the garland.
  • Knot the white yarn on either side of the DIY pom pom and space them out evenly. Continue until the pom pom garland is complete.
