I don’t know about you but I’m obsessed with pompoms! No, not the Cheerleading kind… The crafty kind 😉 My friend Sam reminded me recently about a little gadget I bought ages ago which makes the art of pompom crafting a walk in the park! Gone are the days of cutting bits of cardboard (and invariably cutting yourself) to end up with a less-than-perfect fuzzy ball… Now we have the certified PomPom maker!
It’s so easy to use! Just bend the legs out, wrap your wool around, repeat for the other side, clip the legs back into place, cut down the middle of each row, tie a piece of wool round the middle and then pull the contraption apart! Give everything a shake and you will have a perfectly constructed pompom. The packet comes with two different sizes so you can mix it up! Use different colours of wool to give a 2-tone effect, or try adding your colours on top on one another to make something of a patchwork! The possibilities are endless!! (but still reserved to the pompom medium)
In a related turn of events I bought my wool from Poundland! AND IT WAS ON OFFER! I got 3 balls for £2 and I don’t think you can get much better than that! They have some lovely colours too. I chose cream, grey and mint to go with the colours in my craft room. And I can neither confirm or deny that these little pompom gems might be making an appearance in there!
Are you a pompom convert? I would love to see any variations that you’ve made! Tweet some pics to me @BoldlyGold
