I’ve never been a huge fan of holiday decor, but since Halloween is my favorite holiday, I was determined to make something that I could hang up to celebrate. I didn’t want to make something that screamed Halloween and I also wanted it to be something I could leave up around the studio afterwards. I’ve always loved making pom poms because of how easy they are to make, so I decided to mix Halloween with my pom pom obsession and show you how to make an EYEBALL POM POM garland!
Most pom pom projects focus on a solid color, but did you know you could make designs on pom poms? After you learn this simple how-to, you will be able to master endless pom pom possibilities. Have fun making these, they will definitely be keeping an eye on you. —Sam Ushiro
