Pom Pom & Heart Garland

My Valentine’s DIY home decoration project keeps growing. Here is yet another creation for the holidays with my Pom Pom and Heart garland. To make a garland similar to mine you will need to make several yarn poms in three colors. I chose yarn in the following colors, deep maroon red, pink with silver sparkle detail and a very soft and fluffy white.

I enjoyed using complementary colors and textures to ensure your eye follows over the entire garland. I also had some styrofoam hearts on stakes that I picked from the dollar store. In order to utilize the foam hearts, I removed them from their wooden stakes. I chose to use a thin red ribbon to string my garland. Once I had all of my supplies in order, I laid out a pattern. By previewing your design pattern prior to stringing ensures that you can create and string a balanced garland.

To complete this project thread a needle with an eye large enough for you to thread the ribbon through and thread your pieces onto your garland. I was not sure if I liked this better strung over my hutch or to use it as a stair rail garland. I have included pictures of both placements for ideas to use in your own home.
