Here at the myhoogah HQ, we’ve been daydreaming about Christmas (all the time). These colourful DIY pom-pom buntings have been on our mind to add to the Christmas cheer!

They’re so adorable, you could work them into birthday celebrations or even do up a bland wall. 

These handmade pom pom ball garlands are very easy to make. They can be reused (because you’ll want to) for any festive decor!
