This Flamingo Pom Pom Garland is the perfect addition to your summer pool party!
I swoon every time I look at that picture! My husband kept rolling his eyes at me because I was so excited with how they turned out. Flamingos make me happy. They are grand and beautiful. Best of all, they are pink! These adorable little guys pair well with some pom pom trim and add a touch of whimsy for your summer gathering.

Materials needed for Flamingo Pom Pom Garland
Images used in Design Space
Begin by creating the pom poms for the flamingo bodies. I use this clover pom pom maker. It’s available at Michael’s and is so easy to use.
Start wrapping the yarn around both arms on one side of the pom pom maker. When you reach the end, extend the yarn to the arms on the other side and continue wrapping.
Carefully cut the yarn down the middle between the two arms. Repeat on the other side.
Next take a 6 inch piece of yarn and tie around the middle of the cut yarn. Carefully remove the pom pom maker to reveal your completed pom pom. Trim any long edges for a more uniform looking pom pom.
Now, open Design Space and the flamingo image listed above. Hide one entire flamingo (by clicking on the eyeball next to each layer) and the wings of the other flamingo. All you are cutting is the body. Size to 2.5 inches wide. Adhere pink cardstock to light grip mat. Send image to cut. Load mat into machine and follow on screen directions for completing the cut.
You will multiple flamingo bodies laying around by now. LOL
Cut the neck close to the body and the legs (leaving a little at the top to use to glue into place).
See how I left some extra to apply the glue? Add hot glue and stick into the pom pom. Repeat above process for each flamingo on your garland.
Finally, string together with twine or ribbon.
How cute is this Flamingo Pom Pom Garland?!
I adore this! It looks super cute with the pom pom trim.
