D.I.Y Decorations: Pom-Poms

Want to get crafty for this year’s Street Feast but don’t want something too complicated? These pom poms are the answer. They’re simple to make and they’ll add so much colour to your street. So grab yourself a pair of scissors, two empty loo paper rolls & some yarn and get making.

Grab the look rolls and your yarn. Wrap yarn around and around and around the two tubes ( Check out the third photo to see how much you want to wrap around)

Take another piece of yarn (about a foot long should suffice) and work it between the two tubes and tie a knot

Gently push the yarn toward one end of the tube, being careful to hold onto both ends of the yarn you’re using to securely tie the pom pom together.

Once the yarn is off the tubes, tie it tight and cut around both edges of the pom pom (where the toilet paper rolls were previously).

Trim until you’ve formed your satisfied shape. Ta-Da- a Street-Feast-Ready Pom Pom!

Street Feast is a day of local lunches across Ireland hosted by you and your neighbours. They can be anywhere really - out on the street, in a local park or in your front garden.

There are lots of good reasons to have a Street Feast, but it's really just a great excuse to eat great food, celebrate your local community and meet new people who live near you. For all our latest news check out Neighbourhood Network News
