Burlap and Ribbon Pom Pom
Hi all! I’m so happy to be here at Jen’s place today! My name is Tracie and I am author of CleverlyInspired where I share all sorts of projects, crafts, recipes and all things home. Be inspired to be clever
I love using things that are already hanging around the ole craft room.
These pompoms would be great to use on a gift, on a mantlescape…or maybe bunched up and hanging from a ceiling fixture.
Here’s what you will need to make one large pompom…
- 14 pieces of burlap cut into 12-inch long strands,
- any holiday fabric you like ripped into strips (I used about 14 pieces, holiday ribbon. The strips of fabric are all about an inch wide.
I bet friends will ask you where you bought them
Lay out all the strips of fabric and burlap. Cut in half. Gather the strips from one half and tie a piece of twine tightly and make a knot. Do the same with the other pieces of fabric and burlap. Create one large pompom by joining the two and tying another piece of twine tightly. Poof out the fabric and burlap creating a fuller effect. Remember, it shouldn’t look perfect I love that that they are inexpensive, easy and unique. I bet friends will ask you where you bought them Handmade is the best gift of all.
Thanks Jen for having me visit!
