I love pompoms.
Did I ever tell you how much I loved pompoms? No?
The great thing about pompoms is they couldn’t be more simple. You can make them easily. You don’t need to be able to knit, crochet, or even sew – just wind some yarn around a piece of specifically shaped plastic or card, tie and cut. Craft for all.
There are various ways ways of making pompoms in all sizes (see below).
So I found myself with a pile of them. I’d had an afternoon of creative ‘holiday project’ fun with my daughter, and was wondering what to do with them.
They’re perfect for brightening up any space – particularly a little one’s bedroom.
Strung up and hung across the mantelpiece around the fire or against the wall? I’ve done that before and it’s a great simple effect. (Take care, if the child is very small that they are nicely out of reach.)
Then there was the new pair of curtains I’d recently made, I’d been wondering for a while if they just needed that something extra.
Yep, I think they did.
Such a cheap and easy way to inject some extra colour and texture. Pretty cool I reckon .
And if you’re like me and have a good few odd balls of yarn in your stash – it’s stash-busting heaven…. and pretty addictive.
I even made a Christmas garland with the extras. The colours were perfect.
Go on – make some pompoms – You’d be surprised at what you can do with them.
