Pom This, Pom That!

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....
