Scrappy Pom Pom Bunting

This bunting is perfect for using up fabric and yarn scraps. I have a TON of scraps that keep piling up. The rope can be time consuming so it's perfect to work on while on a road trip or while sitting in front of the TV. There is a really clear tutorial on how to make the rope at My Poppet
First make a whole bunch of rope. This is such a great way to use up fabric scraps. I found that smaller strips and thinner fabric work best. I did use some canvas that I had and it was more difficult to work with. The rope can be used in so many different ways. Use it to decorate presents, cards, to hang things...

After you've got a bunch of rope made, cut enough for your bunting, making sure to tie a knot in the ends. Next make some pom poms using yarn scraps. Attach the pom poms to the rope how you like and you've got a scrappy pom pom bunting. 
I love changing out the bunting on my mantle for seasons, holidays and sometimes just because. Fireworks on 4th of July inspired this one. I thought the pom poms looked like abstract fireworks.
