This little garland is another easy to make. Use a fat needle to poke through the poms and plain old thread, doubled up, You can space out yer poms but I like them really close together.
I just grabbbed my pom poms all willy nilly with no plan, but this might be a great way for working on patterns with your kiddos and yes, fingers do get pricked. I haven't tried a darning needle but they may work and keep fingers ouch free.
I did not tie off my ends as the poms don't slippy slip too much. You can tie off your ends by looping around the first and the last pom or maybe use a button or small bead.
