Noodlehead   valentine window garland

In an effort to get out of the post-holiday funk that’s going on around here, I thought I’d jump right in an do a little Valentine’s day decorating!  It’s always nice to see some bright fun color added to our space in this cold cold time of winter.

I picked up some pom poms in various sizes and threaded them on lengths of some transparent thread.  Just tied a knot in the bottom and threaded the pom poms on with a needle and tried to evenly space them.  Then I taped each strand to the trim at the top of the window (not fancy I know, but it works and it’ll only be up for a little bit anyway).

I think these would be fun to do in any window for any season, it’s fun, modern looking, and adds a little extra special touch.  This would be a great project to try with an older child who is fairly comfortable with a needle!

Now the tricky part will be to keep the little hands and a wagging dog tail away from it…

    Ya know, I bought something like this but they were white pom poms and I know I could have made it but didn’t have the time. I am so glad to hear others are not paying out the nose ($25 for a much smaller version) like I did. Thank you for the instructions. I need to make mine bigger for a larger window. :)

  47. Amy 01.12.2011 at 12:46 pm #

    Any idea o clue on how to do those pom poms???
    Thanks! It’s lovely. Gracias

  63. Anna 01.15.2011 at 11:11 am #

    hi anonymous, not sure if this is what you’re asking, but they’re store bought pom poms and they just slide on to the thread with a needle and stay in place…

  64. Magpie Shinies 01.16.2011 at 9:37 pm #

    I just found this, and it’s suck a cute idea. It’d cheer things up around here, as well. Thank you!

  65. Alex 01.17.2011 at 11:39 am #

    This is a very cute idea. I wish I could do this but I’ll bet the minute I turn my back, the cat will start attacking the pom-poms!

  66. Lil Mama Stuart 01.18.2011 at 6:02 pm #

    came over from samstermommy…love this! i wanted to do something similar, so punched circles out of cardstock and hung from ribbon.

    how much would you say this cost to do for all the pom balls?

  67. lili ash 01.24.2011 at 5:16 pm #

    Very cool idea, I am loving it.

  68. Betty Crocker Ass 01.25.2011 at 6:28 pm #

    I totally made these with my daughter and she loved them. Thanks so much for the idea!

  70. Wendy 01.27.2011 at 12:58 pm #

    Love it! But our cats would destroy this in about 5 minutes.

  71. Kerry 02.04.2011 at 10:43 pm #

    Wouldn’t this be pretty at Christmas with white and silver pom poms? Darling idea and thanks for sharing!!

    I was loving this, and then it hit me that the dog and kitten would destroy it in less than a minute… and then I read your last sentence about the dog! Maybe next year our kitten won’t be climbing the walls, literally. I can hope, right?!

  78. Anonymous 01.23.2012 at 4:16 pm #

    Wow this is so cute! You did a great job! I know there is a seller on Etsy named Adoruhbulcreations who does heart pom pom garlands. I bet she could sell you just the hearts as well! So sweet of you to do this with your daughter!<3

    what are the size of the pom poms??

    • Anna 12.19.2012 at 1:53 pm #

      any craft store, Hobby Lobby, Hancock Fabrics, Michaels, Joanns. They vary in size, but about the size of a quarter, use whatever size you’d like though! :)
