DIY Pom Pom Art

Have you seen the hand woven wall hangings all over Pinterest and Etsy?

These beautiful pieces are HARD to make, well at least for me, I tried and failed.  

So I thought I would try something way more simple!

Okay, remember making mini pom poms out of yarn by wrapping around a fork when you were little?  Well, I made a bunch of pom poms in all different colors and sizes and used them as a unique piece of art in our guest bedroom.

Its really simple after creating the pom poms I just hot glued them onto whatever shape foam core board  I wanted, in my case I used a circle.   It would be really cool to do a triangle or other shapes too!

How To:

  1. Cut out your foam core board shape, draw on it what colors you may want to use so you get an idea of layout and color pallet.
  2. Start making those pom poms! You can do any size and I think it looks best with different sizes.  Just wrap your yarn around a fork about 40 times and then tie it off really tight and cut the ends, make sure to trim your pom poms so they look even.  I definitely should have done better at making them even and fuller, next time I make one I will be making sure that happens. 
  3. Hot glue the pom poms in the spots you want, make sure to fill the space as tight as you can.
  4. Hang it up! I put mine on our shelf but you can hang it just as easily.  Would be really cool hanging within a bunch of photos or art.  

 

Tip: Make sure you make really full Pom Poms, and cut them down so they are even.  It will make your art look more full.

I am definitely going to try this again, I used yarn I had around the house, but I think I will go out and get colors that will match better the next time I make it.  
This is definitely something kids could do, you could use different glue that wasn’t hot if that is a concern.  Great for snow days!  I hope you enjoy this fun little DIY!
