DIY // Christmas Pom Pom Garland

Tuesday kicks off our Christmas Cheer link party featuring your Christmas trees!  This year, we put our 5 year-old faux tree up in the stairway, and bought a real miniature tree for James’ room.  I wanted to keep his kid friendly and thought handmade pom pom garland would be a cute craft project we could do together for the tree.

I should have known my son would be more interested in making a mess of the furry little balls instead of helping me string the garland! 

Later, he did help hand me the balls and I strung up the garland using red and white baker’s twine. The pom poms were found at Hobby Lobby.  A big bag doesn’t cost much.
I made about 7 feet of garland for his 3 foot tree.
Here’s a sneak peek of his Christmas tree with the garland on it.  
See you and YOUR Christmas trees tomorrow!  Please grab a button.  The party will go live at 6:00 a.m. central time.

    I love this garland Megan! James looks like he is having so much fun, too. What a cute little helper you have.

    This may be totally obvious but just curious- how did you string the pom poms on the string? Just with a needle on the end of the string and then using that to go through the middle of each pom pom? Thanks!

      Yes, that's exactly how. 🙂 And I used a pretty large needle.
