How to make pompom place cards:
Cut the cardboard into strips 6cm wide and 24cm long, and fold in half.
Paint a small strip on one end of the cardboard with watercolours. Go over the painted edges with a brush soaked in water so that the colour fades nicely.
Punch a hole through both sides of the folded card and handwrite each guest’s name.
Wrap the yarn around a fork. The amount of yarn you use will affect how thick the pompom will be. Remember to leave a longer piece at the start and finish, so you can attach the pompom to the card. Tie the yarn tightly in the centre of the fork and cut both ends. (You may need to shape the pompom a little into a nice spherical shape.)
Tie the pompom through the hole and knot it to hold in place.
Et voila! These Pompom Place Cards are an easy way to add colour to your tables and are really easy to make. For more fun and easy wedding DIY projects, take a look at the DIY section of our blog.
