Garland of pompons
Decorative pompons garland can become a stylish decoration for any blank wall in the room.
You will need:
- thick white yarn;
- thin white yarn;
- sleigh bells.
Firstly, cut the cardboard circles. Outer diameter of each circle should be 15 cm, and internal – 5 cm. Fold the circles together and wrap them with thick yarn until you close the inner hole of the circles.
Then cut the yarn at the edges, scissors ends should be between the cardboard circles.
Then wrap the yarn around the inner parts of the pompon forcing it between the two cardboard circles and tie in a knot. Thus, the middle of your pompon will remain fixed.
After this step, you can cut the cardboard circles, removing them. Now straighten out pompons, connect them using a needle with a fine yarn, and placing one sleigh bell between each pompon.
Hang your fancy garland on the wall in several layers.
