Last week I finally finished stringing together a very simple pom pom garland which I had (ashamedly) begun on Christmas day, employing my sister to help me make a dozen white pom poms using my rather fancy Clover pom pom makers, while watching various Christmas films. And then of course the pom poms sat in a gift bag for a little under a month until I finally decided to finish what I started!

25 pom poms fill about 2 metres of yarn very comfortably to make a simple strung garland. I initially tried to string the pom poms onto a length of standard shop bought string from Wilkinson's, however I found it was too thick and pulled out the middle of 4 of my pom poms before I declared that exercise a disaster and switched to plain white yarn. Luckily even without their centres the pom poms still hold their shape.
