How To: Pom Poms!
Here at the store we’ve been on a serious pom-pom kick, we think you will be too when you realize how easy and fun they are to make. Everything looks better with a pom-poms!
The Pom-Pom Maker is a clever little tool for making perfect pom-poms every time. Fast and easy to use, each set includes two sizes of Pom Pom Maker, approximately 2.5″ and 3.5″ each. You’ll only need about one half to one ounce of yarn, or approximately 50 yards of worsted weight yarn to make the larger size. The thicker the yarn, the less yardage you’ll need. Mix and match colors, throw in some sparkle, try making stripes… there’s no limit to the fun textures and look. Each pom pom has it’s own character – just check out the video above to see for yourself!
Go ahead, try to make just one! We think once you get rolling (or wrapping) you won’t be able to make just one of these fun little stash-busters. Of course pom-poms are the perfect finishing touch on a favorite stocking cap… They’re also great for holiday decorating – think garlands, tree ornaments, or little woolen snowballs tucked into a centerpiece on your holiday table. Add one to a zipper pull or clasp on a bag, or make a bunch and create a pretty mobile for a child’s room. We even pop them on the tops of pens here at the store to dress up our desks!
Grab a pom-pom maker now and get ready for stash-busting, decorating fun!
