I fell in love with baker's twine years ago when I got a little fruit tart at the new bakery in town and the box was wrapped in red & white twine. Back then you had to be a bakery to get your hands on it!.Now it's all the rage and you can find it at your craft store!I love pulling red and white decor together for the Holidays and even into Valentine's Day too.
So when I was wrapping a present last week I started eye balling the twine and my mini Christmas tree. Let me show you how easy it is to make this cute little pom-pom garland!
Gather your baker's twine, ruler, scissors and a fork to get you started.
Here we go!
1. Wrap the twine around your fork ten times.
2. Cut a 4 inch piece of twine and slide it through the opening of the middle fork tine, right under the wrapped twine and tie a knot around the wrapped twine. Now you can slide it off the fork.
3. Cut the loops on each side of your knotted pom-pom.
4. Fluff up the pom-pom. I like to get the ends of the baker's twine all untwisted and fluffy.
5. Now use the longer ends to tie it to your garland. A regular knot will do, not too tight so you can move it around if needed.
Repeat these steps to make as many pom-poms as desired. I used 7 for my 2 yard garland.
Here's a close up of the twine around the fork. Notice that I am using the center of the fork tines so that I can easily slip that 4 inch piece of twine under the twine through the fork opening.
I like to make garlands 2 yards at a time. And I also put a little loop at each end. This makes them easy and quick to make and a piece of cake to hang or drape as needed.
When you tie the pom-poms to your garland, start in the center and then tie another on at your desired distance. Remember, they can slide a bit to be adjusted as you finish up the garland.
Have fun and make pom-poms to your heart's content! I know I did:)
Here's the first garland on my little tree.
Please feel free to share you pom-pom garland photos and let me know what color baker's twine you decided on!
