DIY Pretzel Garland
Another Christmas DIY! (Albeit super late. Perhaps you can plan on making this next year?!) And this one is super easy! First of all, can you believe that these pretzels are stress balls?? Like, as in, the material they’re made out of is the same material stress balls are made out of. A stress pretzel!! HA! Except I do not highly recommend you squeeze these with all your might once you get the pom poms on them! (By the way, what can be better? Pretzels AND pom poms? Too much cuteness for me.)
- Pretzel stress balls (FYI I just saw that they don’t have these anymore)
- Embroidery needle
- Baker’s twine
- Spray adhesive
- Mini pom poms
- Thread the embroidery needle with the baker’s twine.
- Poke through the pretzel on one side, and then through the other.
NOTE: I didn’t thread the needle and thread through the twisted part of the pretzel. It just saves time, and it’s easier. 🙂
- Continue threading the twine through all the pretzels. No need to tie any knots — the material of the stress ball alone keeps the thread from slipping out.
- Working one or two at a time, spritz a few sprays of spray adhesive on the pretzels, being careful not to spray too much.
Follow the directions on the spray adhesive can before you continue onto step 5.
- Once the adhesive is tacky, sprinkle on the mini pom poms on the top of the pretzel, then gently but firmly press them down to secure.
- Continue steps 4 and 5 until you’ve covered all the pretzels with pom poms.
Wait until the spray adhesive is completely dry before hanging up your new garland!
