Easy Pom Pom Wall Hanging

Easy Pom Pom Wall Hanging

This DIY craft tutorial shows you how to make a boho or bohemian tassel and pom pom wall hanging. This is easy to do using old yarn and is a great fun activity to do with the kids.

What you need

1. Colourful yarns
2. Scissors
3. Cardstock paper
4. Fork
5. Beads
6. Twig


Step 1:

Grab 2 different colored yarn bundles. Hold the open ends of the 2 yarn bundles together, without cutting them from the bundle. Cut a small strand of yarn (about 5 inches should do) and insert the strand through the middle slot and pushing the strand all the way to the closed end.

Step 2:

Grab the 2 yarns prepared in previous step ant to wrap them around the tine of the fork. Keep wrapping the yarn until reaching the required size for the pompom.

Step 3:

Once you’re done wrapping, tie 2 tight knots with the 5 inches yarn strand around the wrapped yarns.

Step 4:

Carefully take out the wrapped yarns from the fork through the open end. Use scissors to cut the looped ends of the wrapped yarns.

Step 5:

Cut each and every looped ends of the wrapped yarns.

Step 6:

Once you’ll be done with cutting the looped ends; carefully trim the open ends of the yarns to give the pompom a smooth outer surface.

Step 7:

Similarly, create more yarn pompoms.

Step 8:

Determine the size for the yarn tassel and cut a piece of cardstock according to the determined size. Select a yarn and wrap it around the cardstock paper as many times as needed to reach the required volume of the tassel.

Step 9:

Done wrapping? Take a long strand of the same colored yarn and tie it around the wrapped yarn on either side of the cardstock. Tie the knot with a short length of the yarn from its open end and keep the longer length intact.

Step 10:

Take out the wrapped yarn from the cardstock.


Step 11:

Hold the yarn strand tied to the yarn group and cut the looped ends on the opposite side of the tied strand.

Step 12:

Use scissors to trim the open ends of the yarns to level the open end of the tassel.

Step 13:

Insert a bead through the open end of the yarn strand tied to the tassel. Push the bead all the way to the closed end. Insert 1 or 2 pompoms into the strand as well.

Step 14:

Similarly prepare a few more (or as many as you want) yarn hanging.

Step 15 Final picture

Attach the pompoms and tassel attached yarn strand to a dry twig. Attach a hanging mechanism on the top end of the twig to complete the wall hanging.
