How-To Make a Giant Pom Pom

I put my pom on top of our Christmas tree, but it could go anywhere in need of a fun decoration!

I’ve always been a fan of pom poms of all shapes and sizes, from pillow trim to the sidelines at a Friday night football game. A few months ago I tested my pom pom DIY skills with Anthropologie-inspired push pins (my tutorial here) but today I decided to go big or go home. I popped in our local Michael’s and snagged this awesome yarn from the Isaac Mizrahi craft collection. I found this tutorial online and adjusted it for a {much} larger sized pom. I perched it atop my family’s tree and the project was complete! The entire thing took less than an hour, including the trip to the store, so it was quick and simple- my favorite kind of crafting venture! Here’s what you need:

Tape, scissors, marker, 2 balls of thick yarn, and 4 cardboard frames (based on this template from Homemade Gifts)
