As I am slowly working on our guest room + office update, I have lots of small detail projects within the space that I’m having fun putting together. I think the cat’s out of the bag that I painted the room a shade of white. And lets be honest, who needs to see an entire post about painting a room white? That’s what I thought. So…. Today I will be sharing my tutorial for a Pom Pom Throw Blanket. It’s all in the details and this was a fun detail to work on!

So, for this pom blanket, I decided to try using an actual * Large Pom pom maker. Let me just say, I fell in love. In a few very easy steps, I was whipping out decently sized poms right and left! I made 16 poms in total and I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to make quick and easy poms.
Wrap your yard around the top and bottom of the pom maker. Next, cut along the edge, you’ll start to see the pom pom taking shape. Next take a nice long piece of yarn and cut it to create the string that secures and holds the pom pom together.
Take your long piece of yarn and insert it, where you just cut. I typically tie a strong knot and twist the yarn the other direction and tie off another knot. The stronger these knots are the more secure your pom pom will be and not unravel at a later date.
Once you’ve made about 5-6 knots, it’s time to open the top and bottom of the pom pom maker and reveal your gorgeous pom pom! You might need to trim a few stray pieces of yarn and create the perfect circle. Easy peasy.
This is such a cozy and easy blanket update. It only took me an afternoon to complete.
I hope you all are ready to rush out and update your simple throw blankets now! And don’t worry, this won’t be the last time you see my pom maker!
