Pom Pom Picnic Blanket DIY

TOTAL TIME: 60-90 Minutes

Pom Pom Picnic Blanket DIY Materials

SUPPLIES

2 Yards of 60" wide (or wider) Terrycloth, Microfiber or Other Absorbent Fabric
6 Yards of Double Fold Bias Tape (If you choose a fabric that frays)
5 1/2 Yards of Each Trim of Your Choice (We chose fringe and two pom pom trims)
Yarn in Colors of Your Choice
Pom Pom Maker
Fabric Glue
Jumbo/Yarn Needle
Scissors
Pencil or chalk

DIRECTIONS

1. First you'll need to make a "compass" so you can draw your circle shape. Cut a piece of yarn 30" long and tie one end to your glue bottle and one end to your pencil/chalk.
2. Fold your fabric in half, good sides together. Hold the glue bottle on the center of the fold and, with the yarn fully extended, draw a half circle on your fabric with the pencil. The half circle should hit the fold on both ends.
3. Cut out the half circle through both layers of fabric and unfold... there's your circle!
4. If you're chosen a fabric that frays, you'll need to glue double fold bias tape over the entire edge of the circle. (We used microfiber and it was not necessary)
5. Follow the instructions that come with your pom pom maker to make the larger pom poms, if desired. To make multi-colored ones like I did, just continue adding different sections of color in "blocks" as you go.
6. Thread the yarn that you've tied the pom pom with through the needle and stitch onto the blanket. Or, if you prefer, you could also glue these straight onto the fabric and trim the excess yarn. We placed ours about one foot apart.
5. Then you're ready to add your trim! Glue the trim along the edge of your fabric (over the bias tape, if you've used it and over where the pom poms are attached) in small sections at a time. We started with fringe, than added pom pom trim.
6. Let dry completely and you're ready to go!
