How to Make Pom Poms for a Garland

If you’re looking for ways to make pom poms, you’ve come to the right place! As Christmas approaches, creating a garland can add warmth and festivity to your home. This DIY project is simple, quick, and affordable, making it perfect for getting the whole family involved in the holiday spirit.

You can customize this project with different colors to match your decor. In this guide, we’ll walk you through a tutorial on how to make pom poms that will add a festive touch to your holiday decorations. Let’s get started!


When choosing yarn for your pom poms, a thinner, silkier option will give your garland a drapey look, while thicker yarn with more wool or cotton will create chunkier pom poms.


Before you start making your pom poms, decide on the colors and styles you want to use. For a Christmas garland, traditional red, green, and white colors work well. If you’re making a Halloween garland, classic orange and black are great choices. Once you’ve chosen your colors, it’s time to begin.

To make a pom pom, start by cutting a piece of yarn at least 10 cm long. Then, take a fork and place the yarn in the middle of its prongs. Wrap the yarn around the fork 30 to 35 times. Tie the spare yarn left at the beginning around the center of the wound yarn to secure it. Use the fork to fluff and open up the strands of yarn.

Once the basic shape of the pom pom is formed, use scissors to trim the ends and shape it. Use the spare yarn to tie a knot as a hanging loop. Your first pom pom is complete!

How to Make Larger Pom Poms:

To make a larger pom pom, you’ll follow a similar process but use two fork tongs instead of one. Place a piece of yarn in the middle of your fingers and wind the remaining yarn around your fingers 30 to 35 times. Then, carefully remove the wound yarn and tie the spare yarn around its center. After trimming and shaping, you’ll have a larger pom pom.

You can mix and match colors and styles to create fun and playful decor. Use different colored yarns or layer them to create new combinations. The possibilities are endless, so let your creativity run wild!

Creating a Garland:

Once your pom poms are ready, it’s time to assemble your garland. Cut a long piece of yarn, thread it onto a needle, and pass it through the middle of each pom pom, securing the yarn with stitches at the first and last pompom. Get creative by alternating big and small pom poms and mixing up the colors. Once the last pom pom is attached, your garland is ready to hang!

Turning Pom Poms into a Tree:

To take your decorations to the next level, you can create a pom pom tree using the same process as above. Once your pom poms are complete, arrange them on branches. You can tie them to the branches or simply insert them to secure the pom poms in place.

Make Your Holiday Decor Unforgettable:

Learning how to make pom poms is a fantastic way to kick off the holiday season. These delightful decorations are perfect for garlands, clothing accessories, or as standalone ornaments. Hang them above your fireplace, on your Christmas tree, or on your wall to add a playful touch to your holiday decor.
