We love to make pompoms because yarn is such an inexpensive medium for the amount in a spool. For our Ramadan craft today we decided to try our hand at making an Eid pompom mini banner using clamps.
Eid Al Fitr is the holiday that comes at the end of Ramadan and is due to start this Friday.
Once you try your first banner, you’ll get the hang of how many pompoms to add to make them smaller or larger. You can also decide to make your banner multicolored like ours, or only choose a few colors to follow a theme.
I had to ask my husband to borrow the clamps we used to make the pompom since they were not a tool I normally keep in my studio. Otherwise the supplies for this craft tutorial are minimal and your banner length is only limited by your table length.
Place the clamp on the end of a table and tie the main line to the top. This is the yarn that you will not cut, so for the tutorial, I made it white so you can see it.
Add more colors to the c clamp, alternating the colors but making sure to keep the white yarn always at the top.
Cut smaller strands of the white yarn, as many as you want pompoms.
Tie the smaller strands around all the colorful yarns, making sure the knots are tight. I did one on top and two below to make sure they did not slip.
Cut the extra hanging strands short. Next you’ll want to hold all the color yarn together, except for the white yarn, and cut across.
Keep cutting across until all the pompoms are cut. untie the white yarn from the c clamps
Fluff up each pompom and cut off any strands that might not match.
Your banner is now ready to decorate with and that was so easy and fast, we made two.
I think our next one will be school colors to celebrate the last day of school next week.
But for now, this one will be combined with our original Eid pompom banner for our upcoming weekend celebration(s).
