One of my absolute favourite things to do is make POM POM’s! They are so quick and easy to do, and you can add them to basically everything. I mean EVERYTHING!
I love adding them to wicker baskets. It’s a great way to incorporate an accent colour into a space without making too much commitment. You can always change the colours in the future!
– You’ll need some yarn. I like using crochet yarn. 1-4 colours.
– A pair of scissors.
– Your beautiful hand
– A basket.
– A glue gun and some glue sticks.
1: Take your yarn and begin to wrap around your hand (I usually do a four finger wrap pom pom.)
Continue wrapping until the yarn starts to become almost ball like (wrap 30-50 times depending on yarn used). Be sure not to wrap too tight otherwise you won’t be able to slip off your hand.
2: Slip the yarn off of your hand. Take another piece of yarn about 10 inches long and tie a knot around the middle of your yarn. Make sure this is tight.
3: Cut the loops on both ends of your yarn. Trim more if needed to shape into a circular pom pom. Repeat 4x.
4: Plan out where you’d like your Pom Poms to sit on your basket. Now with your glue gun, secure the Pom Poms in place.
