Tulle Pom Pom Garland

Tulle Pom Pom Garland - The Ribbon Retreat BlogHello there Ribbon Retreat friends! It’s Michaela from Covered in Mod Podge back to share a great Christmas decoration tutorial. These little tulle pom poms are easy to make and very affordable. Strung up as a garland, they make a big statement. That makes them the perfect holiday decoration in my book!

Tulle Pom Pom Garland - The Ribbon Retreat BlogWant to make your own? You’ll need:
Tulle (I used Mint, White, and Red)
Thread (I used Snow)
Scissors
Needle
Washi Tape for hanging

I came up with a fun little trick for making multiple pom poms at once. I borrowed my daughter’s art table to help me out. You’ll want to find something with thin legs that are at least two feet apart to be able to make multiple pom poms at the same time.

Tulle Pom Pom Garland - The Ribbon Retreat BlogStart out by wrapping your tulle around the legs about 5 times.

Tulle Pom Pom Garland - The Ribbon Retreat BlogNext, you need to tie off sections that will be cut into the pom poms.
(I used quadruple folded sewing thread. Double folded wasn’t strong enough.) Pull the thread very tight and secure by tying it around the tulle multiple times. Finish with a double knot. Place a tie every four inches or so.

Once you’ve tied off the entire length of tulle, you’ll cut it into individual pom poms by cutting in the middle of each tie.

Tulle Pom Pom Garland - The Ribbon Retreat BlogMake sure the pom pom is even on both sides.

Tulle Pom Pom Garland - The Ribbon Retreat BlogRepeat steps for the other side. This will make your pom pom nice and full.

Tulle Pom Pom Garland - The Ribbon Retreat BlogNow fluff up your pom pom by pulling the tulle sections out.

Repeat until you’ve finished enough pom poms for the area you want to decorate.

Tulle Pom Pom Garland - The Ribbon Retreat BlogThread your pom poms onto a length of thread using a needle. I spaced them out evenly. No need to tie the thread to keep the pom poms in place. The thickness of the gathered tulle keeps them in place. You can also gather the pom poms together for a cute garland!

Tulle Pom Pom Garland - The Ribbon Retreat BlogI think this tulle pom pom garland would be adorable in a host of colors to match any holiday or decor. The garland would also be perfect for birthday party decorations!

Happy Christmas decorating!
