Piles of pom poms are delightful in and of themselves. A pom pom tree, then, takes the fuzzy, cozy-ness to the next level of holiday goodness.
As a side note, sometimes when I’m crafting, I think a trip to the dollar store is worth the extra time and, well, dollar. This is one of those cases. You could craft yourself a cone shape as your pom pom tree base easily enough. But since your friendly neighborhood dollar store has all sorts of cone-shaped Christmas decor just waiting to be covered in pom poms, I’d go with that. I did go with that, actually.
Also, I should mention that this tutorial is part of the Kojodesigns Craft from the Stash Handmade Holiday Gift Guide.
To make a pom-pom-y tree of delight, you’ll need:
-one dollar store cone
-yarn (I used less than a skein of yarn to make my pom poms)
-a pom pom maker (I used about 45 medium sized pom poms)
-a needle and thread (the thread should match your pom pom color)
1. Make a whole pile of pom poms (like I said, 45-ish).
2. Stitch two lines of pom poms on opposite sides of your cone-tree.
3. Fill in each triangular gap with the rest of your pom poms (still stitching those babies on with your needle and thread).
4. Incorporate this holiday delight into your decor… mine is currently gracing our table in a hurricane lamp. Glory. Or more accurately- delight.
***Also, if you haven’t entered this month’s ruffle dress giveaway, be sure to do so before midnight tonight. After the giveaway winner is announced, and after december’s grand giveaway is revealed, it’ll be back to stash crafting and yarn and handmade holidays… Good luck!
