Crafts: Snowball Garland
1. You will needs several different sizes of white pompoms. We used three sizes, small, medium and then some really large ones. You can purchase these at your local craft store such as HobbyLobby, Joann's or Michael's.
2. Fishing line or some clear string
3. a large needle
4. hot glue and a glue gun
I then starting stringing pompoms onto the fishing line. The needle was difficult to push through the center of the pompom so I just went a little to one side and it was pretty easy to get the needle through. I varied sizes as I went and for a 6' length I think I did around 10-13 pompoms.
We were hoping the pompoms would just stay where we spaced them on the fishing line, and the small and medium size ones did. But unfortunately the large ones fell straight to the bottom and pulled everything in their way down as well. So we decided to add a bit of hot glue.We laid the garland on the floor and spread out all the pompoms to the location we wanted them to stay. Then we put a drop of hot glue under each pompom on the fishing line.
To achieve the look we created with the hanging, we first hung a few garlands close to the wall and spaced a couple feet from each other. We then hung the next round between each existing garland but three inches away from the wall. The staggered look made the snowballs stand out better.
