Quick and Easy Christmas Decor: DIY Snowball Garland

I know, I know. It's early to start decorating for Christmas, but hey, I'm only about a week early! Lately, I have had an itch to decorate for Christmas. It is my favorite holiday after all. This year, I wanted to go for a silver and white theme. Do you know how hard it is to find cute garlands in stores? I went to every craft store! Don't get me wrong, they had plenty of cute garlands, but none that matched my "vision." 

So, I decided to create my own garland. I remember seeing these garlands in classrooms as a child, and it seems to still look cute to me! It's simple to make and adds a touch of cuteness.

DIY Snowball Garland

You will need:
1 bag of large pom poms
1 bag of small pom poms
1 sewing needle
1 ball of string

First, string the thread through the sewing needle. This was probably the most difficult part of the process. And it only took one minute, two tops. 

You will want to figure out any pattern, in any, that you would like before you begin threading. I decided to string on whim. 

Next, string the needle through each pom pom. I suggest threading slightly off center, the middle can be a bit thick.

Slide each pom pom down to the end of the garland, stopping about two inches between each pom pom. 

My garland was about six feet long, enough for two strands. I hung it on our mantle with duct tape, easy to attach, easy to take off!

There you have it! A super easy and quick Christmas decor idea that can even be done as a family (like popcorn stringing, but without the craving and mess). Have you started decorating for Christmas yet?
