This DIY is super easy and a great gift idea with this rough winter most of the country is having!
You can use any throw blanket you have at home or an inexpensive one from the store of your choice. You simply make about 10-20 pom pom’s and sew them to two opposing ends of the blanket. The number of pom-poms is based on your preference of how full you like them.
You will need:
- Yarn (I used this super soft yarn)
- 3″ Pom Pom Maker
- Fabric Scissors (Sharper than regular scissors & cut through yarn much better)
- Yarn Needle
- Throw Blanket
Step 1: Take your pom pom maker and wrap yarn around both sides of the pom pom maker.
Step 2: Following the seam of the pom-pom maker, use your scissors to cut the yarn in complete circle.
Step 3: Cut a 12 inch piece of yarn and wrap it around the circle of the pom pom maker and tie a knot to secure the ball of the pom-pom. Pull the pom-pom maker apart and fluff your pom pom. You may need to use the scissor to cut a few long pieces of yarn to make sure the pom pom is a perfect circle.
Step 4: Lay your blanket out and place pom poms about 6 inches apart. This is a personal preference so make it as full as you like.
Step 5: Take a sewing needle and thread with yarn. Place needle through pom pom and again through the front of the blanket.
Step 6: Tie a knot around the back of blanket to secure.
Step 7: Repeat this step across the blanket until you achieve the fullness desired.
Step 8: Repeat steps 7 & 8 going across the opposing side of the blanket.
You’re all done! Grab a snack, wrap yourself in your new Pom-Pom Thrown Blanket and cozy-up on your couch! If you missed my Cozy Couch Edition Part one you can find it here to see how to add the perfect Sofa Arm Tray to accompany your new blanket!
