Project Pinterest - Yarn Alliums

I love alliums...those big puffy floral balls that sit atop rather skinny stems.

I'd love to have them line our mantle, but I have no interest in shelling out a small fortune to keep fresh ones in the house.

Enter: Alliums made from yarn!
They are so simple to make and I already had everything I needed on hand: yarn, glue, sticks.


The pom-pom tutorial calls for wool, but I didn't have any pretty wool that I was willing to waste on pom-poms, so I used regular acrylic yarn with sparkles...and I think it turned out just fine.

2. Create it!
3. Flop or success, create a blog post about your re-do and include the original pin’s url.
4. Add the Project Pinterest button to your post so others can join in too!
5. Link up and check out other bloggers’ posts!


  1. These are so cool Katie! Wonder how I missed this pin of yours? LOVE these and will have to try them. MY PP will be up later today. Had a slight glitch in my project and will finish it up today.

  2. Oh my gosh, Katie - I was already HERE to get the new button code.... I SAW your flowers, but didn't even realize that they weren't REAL until I just came back to read your post. They are so cute!!! I've gotta try this! Also, the photo in front of the glass-block window is beautiful! ~Sal

  3. Ditto to Sally above!!!

    They looked so real and then I read your post. Incredible! You did an outstanding job! Well done!!!

  4. GORGEOUS!!!! These look just fabulous in that window. I think I like the yarn you used better than the wool. Adds a bit of sparkle and shine. Very pretty indeed!
