Snowball Pom Ornament

Happy Monday!
Eeek!!  6 Days til Christmas.  I'm excited!

Today, I'm sharing my love for poms with you because my ornament is a miniature tulle pom to hang on your tree.  It reminds me of a snowflake, so it's my Snowball Pom Ornament.


And I'll show you how to make one!
Here is what you need:  
white tulle
white embroidery thread (or fishing line, or floral wire will work)
Scissors
Ruler

Ready?  First off, take your white tulle and cut 4 squares at 6inches x 11inches. 


Pile your strips of tulle then start accordion folding from the short end.  Make your folds fairly small, about 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick.



Pinch it at the center like this.


Then, fold it in half like so.  Cut it at the fold.


Pinch the now smaller pile in the center again and tie your thread, fishing line or wrap your floral wire around the center.


It should look like this.  If you're using thread, keep the remaining thread long.


Now you can begin to separate the layers of your tulle.


Do this until your have one pom.


Now you can tie your remaining thread into a loop.


It will now look like a miniature loofah!  HA!!  


You can now hang it on your tree.  Now make more so you have cute tulle snowballs all over your tree!




Fun!  And if you don't like them on your tree, use them with some decorative pieces like I did.


A soft, puffy snowball!  So festive and so easy!!


Have fun!  Thanks for stopping in!

This is one of my favorite finds for a DIY idea. I have already pinned it on my holiday board to remember for next year - giving you the credit of course. :0 Thanks for linking this up to Motivated Monday at BeColorful.
Merry Christmas,
