For an easy and inexpensive way to dress up your baby’s nursery, make a pom-pom garland! You can hang it over the changing table or along an empty wall to add some cheer to the space. These pom-pom garlands are so easy to make you easily could whip up one for your child’s first birthday party decor or even a friend’s baby shower! It’s so simple to customize the colors to suit your needs.
Step One: Place one end of the yarn through the middle of the fork, leaving a 2-inch tail.
Step Two: Hold onto the tail with one hand and with the other hand, tightly wrap the yarn around the fork about 60 times.
Step Three: Cut another piece of yarn to about 4 inches. Carefully slip the looped yarn off the fork and tightly tie the 4 inch piece of yarn around the center of the loops.
Step Four: Cut through the loops to form a pom-pom. Trim the yarn until the pom-pom is an even sphere.
Step Five: Tie the pom-poms onto a long piece of yarn to create the garland.
