Cheap & Easy Neon Pompom Garland DIY

You may have seen the neon ornaments I made a couple of weeks ago with fun stencils on them. Well, as it turns out neon is just a bit too much for me. But guess who it isn’t too much for? My sister and nephews!

So these ornaments made the trek with me down to my sister’s house for Thanksgiving to live on her white tree with multicolored lights. Since there is a huge dearth in the neon Christmas decor market in 2012 we had to get relatively crafty to get her tree all dolled up. I’m predicting in 2013 that it will be considerably easier to find neon tree baubles. You heard it here first, people!

So in the spirit of a fun and jovial (yet cheap) Christmas tree we tromped around the hobby store looking for anything that could work. We stumped upon some neon pompoms and that was the basis for the first garland made for this tree that turned out way, way awesome!

For this project you will need:

Cheap & Easy Neon Pompom Garland DIY

Cut out a piece of yarn that is approximately the size you would like your garland. To make things easier, I worked in approximately 5 foot lengths and made 6 or so garlands.

Take and knot the end of your yarn and run through your yarn needle. Push the needle through the pom (which is why you need the pointy metal tip) and run down the yarn until it hits the knot you made.

About 3-4 inches away double knot the yarn as a stopping point for your next pom.

Thread the pom on and push until it stops on your knot.

Repeat until you are happy with the garland you have! That’s it… seriously! My sister said that these little babies were her favorite part of her awesome tree. It was cheap, easy and fast which makes that even more awesome!!! Happy Hump Day and I hope you enjoyed this pompom garland DIY!
