Have you ever wanted to just make something fun, cute, and easy? Well this project is for you! My daughter loves anything crafty, and anything “Mommy Made” for that matter! Last night after she went to bed I had the bright idea to string up some of our pom pom stash and craft a necklace for her. It turned out to be super cute, super simple, and I didn’t have to purchase anything! If you are a crafter, you probably already have everything you need on hand. If you don’t have everything you need, the cost is very minimal. You can crank a few of these babies out within a short period of time and they make great gifts, especially for birthday parties. Here’s what you’ll need to get started:
*Pom Poms (approximately 10-15 of various sizes)
*Embroidery floss (50 inches)
String your embroidery floss through your needle. The needle should be in the middle (at the 25 inch point) of your floss. Gather the two ends together, making sure that the two end pieces are even.
Tie a knot at the end, leaving about 2 inches of excess floss. Don’t cut the end just yet, you will need the extra length to tie it at the end.
Pick your first pom pom and push it through the needle. Once the pom pom is on the floss, push it all the way down to your knot.
Now that your first pom pom is pushed all the way to the end, create another knot and continue adding pom poms. You will add a new knot after each pom pom.
Once all of your pom poms are strung, cut the floss to release the needle and gather your two ends together. Before you tie the ends together, find the center of the necklace to add your tassel.
Once your center has been determined, tie the ends of your necklace. I would recommend tying it in a knot at least two times.
Locate your tassel and tie it to the center point of your necklace. If using a handmade yarn tassel, I would recommend tying it a minimum of two times to secure the tassel.
