fall pom-pom trees

Bring the Fall palette indoors and use when decorating throughout your home with an assortment of Fall Pom-Pom Trees.
Step 1

First, cut about 10" [25.4 cm] of yarn from your first skein and stretch it out on your working surface in front of you.

Step 2

Now, take the yarn end directly from the skein and wrap it around your hand 25-40 times, depending on the thickness of the yarn. Cut the yarn to detach from the skein. Carefully slide the loops from your hand.
TIP: Be careful to not disturb the loops.

Step 3

Lay the loops on top of the stretched-out yarn piece from Step 1. Tie the yarn piece around the outside of the loops, in the middle, and tie in a double knot.

Step 4

Cut open the loops on both sides of the knot to create your shaggy pom-pom.

Step 5

Add a fair amount of hot glue to the top of a wood bead (opposite side of the hole) and attach the yarn pom-pom.
TIP: The bottom of your tree will sit with the hole side down, since it is the side that is flat.

Step 6

Shape your pom-pom into a tree shape with scissors.

Step 7

Repeat for as many trees as you’d like in your Fall décor.
