I got a new tree skirt this year to match my stockings. However, I just wanted to add a little bit of red to it. I can't knit or crochet, but I really wanted some popcorn thingys on it to match my stockings. Well, I came up with my own solution and did it yesterday! I love it so much!!
I couldn't get a complete before picture, because I was just too excited to sew on my first pom pom ball.
How I did it:
I wanted my pom poms to be the same texture as my tree skirt, so I didn't want to make poofy yarn pom poms. I had some sleeves of a red sweater from my craft room that I used to make re-purposed stockings years ago (thankfully not in the storage unit). They matched perfectly! All I needed was, thread, scissors, and I used those packaging pillow things as the stuffing of my pom poms. Reduce, reuse, recycle - bonus!
|I used a fourth of each square in one pom pom|
|I used a spool of thread for the size of my circles.|
|I rolled up the plastic, placed it in the middle of the circle, and stitched around the outside, then pulled the stitch closed to form my pom pom.|
|Then, I sewed each pom pom on the tree skirt.|
If you can't knit or crochet, now you can make your own pom poms to add texture to a fun project!
