I love this combination for a DIY Halloween Pom Pom garland because it will also transition to fall. I don’t decorate a lot for Halloween now that the kids are away, but I thought it would be fun to add just a touch of DIY Halloween decor this year.

I love pom poms! I find them relaxing to make and I usually make them while laying in bed and watching TV.
DIY Halloween Pom Pom Garland – The Pom Poms
I used my pom pom maker kit. I have an entire tutorial on how to make pom poms with a pom pom making kit. The kit came with terrible instructions so you might want to read that post as well. For this combination DIY Halloween Pom Pom Garland, I used all four sizes. I’ll refer to the sizes as X-Small, Small, Medium, and Large.
If you don’t mind using all one size, I have another post showing you how to make pom poms using other materials you may have around the house. I now use only pom pom makers because they waste less yarn and require less trimming.
The black pom poms were made using black yarn and the S pom pom maker. After Halloween is over, I’ll store the black garland and just use the white one for fall. As a tip, I wrap garlands around a piece of cardboard when storing so they don’t end up tied in knots.
The white garland is made using all four sizes of pom pom makers. I used mostly the Large, but also added in a few of all of the other sizes to help hide the chunky yarn I tied them to. YOu could use twine or any of the yarn you use. I just happened to have the fluffy, chunky yarn. I used white, and two different ivory yarns to make the pom pom to give the garland more texture. I know I used 14 of the Large, but I honestly didn’t count all of the others.
The sparkly pumpkins and leaves were found at Dollar Tree. The pumpkins came on sticks that I broke off shorter. You can glue the pumpkins where you want them, but I just stuck the sticks into the yarn and so far they haven’t fallen off. The jury is still out on whether or not I’ll pull out the glue fun.
The leaves came in a pack of two and are attached to small clips so that made it super easy to add them. Dollar Tree seasonal items aren’t in stores for long so I’m sorry if the links don’t work.
It takes a bit of time to make the pom poms, but they aren’t hard at all. I hope you enjoyed this short post and that it gave you a new idea for your DIY Halloween decor. This DIY Halloween garland was super fun to make. I hope you’ll give it a try!
