DIY Pom Pom Garland

Needing some holiday cheer and color in your life? Look no farther than this super simple DIY Pom Pom Garland! You’ll need at least 6 different colors of yarn and scissors.

Once you’ve picked your colors, choose one and wrap around 4 fingers 15-20 times.

Cut a piece of yarn in the same color that is about 3-4 inches long.

Tie a knot in the center of your yarn bundle, flip it over and tie another knot.

Cut the yarn on each side of your knots to create your pom pom. Don’t worry if it’s uneven, you can always go back and trim!

Once you’ve created multiple pom poms, tie them onto a long piece of yarn by the longest two pieces of yarn attached to your pom pom. Once done, trim off excess yarn off pom pom and shape them so they are even on all sides.

Now you have a colorful holiday garland! Feel free to decorate as you please, but here are a few suggestions for how to use your new garland:

Decorate a present!

Or, decorate a tree (or in our case, a cactus!)

Have a wonderful and safe Happy Holidays from your friends at Maptote!

Our Founders Michael’s Holiday Picks!

Michael here, I’m one of the founders here at Maptote! I work on everything from design direction to visiting our Brooklyn factories weekly to pick up our products, and good ole admin work. This guide is filled with items that I am selfishly putting out in the ether with hopes someone from my family will see this guide 😉 I go for everything from modern classic design like this Tivoli Radio to my new love of fishing with this Anchor doormat from Gum Tree.  Nostalgic for 90’s indie music, I look forward to getting into this book from Sub-Pop. We collaborated with our friends from Winter Water Factory on a baby and kids line, so I was stoked when they added some adult sweats. I love my adopted home city of NYC so can’t wait to show off my WWF x Maptote sweatshirt.  My desktop is so cluttered and for whatever reason I can never find my stapler and was excited to find that Social Type has one that will definitely not get lost and up the game for my desk. Last but not least I am not looking forward to the cold dark winter and need to get my caffeine fix from my favorite NYC staple Pearl River Mart

1) Tivoli Radio

2) Anchor Doormat – Gum Tree

3) World Domination: The Sub Pop Story Book – Sub-Pop
