Does that need a pom? Does this need a pom? I think it does! Silly, but fun... Pom poms are adorable! I've got to make more...
After I created this kitty valentine, I just had to add a yarn pom pom, right? I tied it around a heart sucker. Love this kitten from Collective Creation. What do you think about the pun?
I also added a pom pom to this wonderful door hanger for my teacher friend, Souna. You might remember the one I made for her for the beginning of school HERE.
A pom pom just made it right cheery, don't you think? Not that the snowman needs much help, he's pretty much bright and cheery all on his own! He's from J&G Design.
Here's a quick tutorial on pom pom making:
I used a fork to make one the right size for the lollipop. I used four fingers to make the one for the snowman.
Then start wrapping. This is about 20 times around. Keep going...
For the fork size, I wrapped it about 65 times. For the four finger size, I wrapped it 100 times. You can just use a piece of the yarn to tie it, in this case I used twine. I poked through the bottom middle of the fork and up around the back of the yarn and loosely tied it.
Slip it off the fork and tie it TIGHT in a knot. Cut the loops all the way around.
See how scraggily it is? Cut and cut and cut and cut and cut some more to turn it into a pom pom! If you just want the pom, you can cut off the twine pieces. I wanted to keep them to tie the pom to the sucker stick.
It takes a lot of trimming to get it into pom pom style!
Stay tuned: Another challenge starts this coming weekend!
Now, go POM something....
