Make it ! Vertical garland !!!

I don't know if you have done some (or just one! ;oD) embellished granny squares from my tutorial, but in case, I would love to show you what I did with mine!!!

I took all 3 of them and with a pom pom maker ( the small one), I did 9 (you can do less, more or none at all!!!) little and colourful pom poms

I decided even to add a yarn doll HERE the instructions!) ....

I had in mind a vertical garland, so I started to join (using knots) the pieces from the bottom-up, and the first elements were the yarn doll, one pom pom and one of the embellished grannies

As you can see from the above picture and the following one, the red pom pom seems the wig of the yarn doll!!!!

Then I collected other 3 pom poms to join (knotting the tails in the back, as  I let pass them in the corners of the granny squares) the last granny to the 2nd one...

At this point I joined the first granny to the one in the middle, with the help of other 3 pom poms

Last touch : on the top of the corner of the first granny, I simply knotted a red velvety ribbon ( I made a loop big enough to hang the garland somewhere!) and the last 2 pom poms left

The garland can dangle from a chest of drawers

or from a bookcase, for example

...this is where I like it most!!!
