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’m always browsing the internet for current decor trends but I also love to make things myself. I love pom poms! I find them relaxing to make and I usually make them while laying in bed and watching TV. It’s a fun little DIY home decor project. I’ve been creating more Halloween craft ideas so stay tuned for more.
DIY Halloween Pom Pom Garland – The Pom Poms
I use a pom pom maker set to make the pom poms. I have an entire tutorial on how to make pom poms with a pom pom maker. The kit came with terrible instructions so you might want to read that post as well.
You’re going to thank me later for this, but I highly recommend you read the post I linked above about how to use the pom-pom maker then pin it to your favorite Pinterest board so you can find it later. You can find the pom pom maker set on Amazon, Walmart, or Michael’s crafts.
For this combination DIY Halloween or fall 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 extra-small 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. I used mostly the X 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 poms to give the garland more texture. I know I used 14 of the Large, but I honestly didn’t count all of the others. Sorry! Somebody count and tell me how many you see! 😉
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. You might be able to find something similar at Hobby Lobby or Michaels’s Crafts.
The Leaves and Pumpkins
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. I also found the small glitter pumpkins there.
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 Pom Pom Halloween decor. This DIY Halloween pom pom garland was super fun to make. I hope you’ll give it a try!
I recently made another Halloween pom pom garland DIY with felt bats with bendable wings that I thought you might enjoy.
