I am so excited to share today’s post with you in partnership with Sony Music. They have the most incredible holiday playlist available which you can stream here that is just packed with all my favorites! There’s a great mix of classics and contemporary choices. A few of my favorites are “Blue Christmas” by Elvis, “Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!” by Pentatonix, “Silver Bells” by Dean Martin, “Jingle Bells” the Glee Cast Version, and the song that inspired this craft—Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas is You!” I’d love to hear some of your favorite Christmas songs in the comments!

Step one: Make one tag for every letter. You can, of course, choose totally different song lyrics or titles than I did—whatever best fits your home and your seasons of life!
Step 2: Use wood beads to string your lyrics onto yarn, use two beads to separate every word, and add two at the beginning and end of each banner.
Step 3: Make pom poms. Giant pom poms, if possible. This is the pom pom maker I used for the XL poms. And I used this set for the smaller ones. I used chunky yarn and layered different colors on each pom pom. These are somewhat time consuming, so a great project to do while listening to the holiday playlist!
To hang the pom poms, I added a wood bead at the beginning and end and then two beads between each pom pom. They are super chunky, so I just used a tapestry needle to sew yarn through the center of each pom.
Next, hang it all up and enjoy it with some twinkle lights and hot cocoa!
I LOVE making my own holiday decor, and my favorites are projects like this that I can make in one evening while listening to a great holiday playlist. During the holiday rush, it really helps me to unwind and clear my head at the end of a long day. My husband always jokes that he can tell when I’m stressed because I can’t stop beginning new projects. Anyone else feel the same way?
Thanks so much for reading! xx – Elsie
