Let's talk Pom-Poms! There are so many different ways to make pom-poms. I remember making them around my hand, and around a piece of cardboard. You can make them around even a fork! Man, the list goes on and on!! What I have for you today is the We R Memory Keepers DIY Pom Pom Maker! This way you get a perfect size pom-pom each and every time. There are three different sizes that come in the package! A small, medium and a large!
These little guys are so simple to use and fun too! You basically just open each end up, wrap yarn or twine around each side, close it up, cut them, tie yarn around the middle and tie in a knot, open the sides back up and pull them apart! BAM!!! It's that easy!
However, if you are a step by step crafter here is a photo of the steps to make one of these fun pom poms!!!
I have to say that my daughter saw these sitting on my table and said "Mom, I want to make a Pom-Pom Garland for my bedroom. I want to hang it over my bed! Do you think you could make me one?" This was my response to her "Autymm, I won't make you one, but I WILL show you how to make yourself one!"
LOL OK... Before the jokes start about how mean I am, I have to say I would have made her one, but I knew that she would love it more if she made it herself! So I sat down with her on Saturday afternoon. We pulled out the three makers and went to work!
She picked out three different colors of yarn. And she created her own pattern. She also wanted to use Jute to tie them on to, and then she strung it up in her bedroom.
Not only was I proud of her for doing it all by herself, but she was proud of herself and that my friends is worth it's weight in gold! To see your child proud of their own success is a wonderful thing. It melts the heart.
Some of you may be wondering if you can do more than one color at a time so you have a multi colored pom-pom. And the answer to that question is YES!!! You can make these pom-poms really fluffy by wrapping a lot of yarn around each side, or you can make them less fluffy by wrapping less yarn. The choice is yours! I have to say that these three little tools are a must have in the craft room. They take up hardly any space and they can be used for so many different things! If you get yourself one of these tools we would love to see your pom-pom projects!!!
Hope you all have a fun and crafty day! Be sure to come back and see more fun ideas!!!
