{13 Days of Handmade Halloween} Googly Eyed Monster Pom-Pom Garland Tutorial

Are you hosting a frightfully delightful Halloween bash for your little ones this year? Then this project is just for you. To finish off the 13 Days of Halloween series, I created this adorbs monster pompom garland with silly googly eyes. A perfect decorative piece for an All Hallows Eve kiddie bash !

To start you will need a few supplies  -  to make my pompoms I use a pompom maker by clover, yarn (of course), googley eyes, plastic needle, scissors and glue!

To start, following the instructions on the pompom maker, wrap the yarn around several times on each side.

Once you've wrapped the yarn, take sharp scissors and cut down the center of each side following the notch on each handle.

With both sides still closed, tie a length of string in the center and pull taut a few times.  Snip off any excess from the TIED string only.

Make about 8-10 pompoms (or more) to start building your garland.

Add a dab of glue to the eyes and start applying them to the pompom balls.  I like to use hot glue (on like everything) fabric glue or regular old Elmer's All-Purpose is fine too - there is just a longer wait time and I like instant gratification!

Once your pompoms have all their eyes added, take a length of string, twine or yarn, and with a plastic needle, thread the string through each pompom.  Be sure you are running the string through them so that the decorated side will show when hanged.

Once completed, hang your garland against a wall or along a shelf or even across a mantle for a 'EYE'-catching display.

I hope you joined this year's 13 Days of Handmade Halloween series!
