I bought a pom pom maker a few weeks ago, and am finally getting around to putting it to work. Over the weekend I was dying to try out my new toy, so I started making pom poms even though I didn't have a project in my mind for them. Then, I remembered Claire's recent post on her blog, claireabellemakes, where she added pom poms to her bicycle basket. It was so cute and festive! I decided it would be fun to create a similar look for my craft room.
Ready to add a dose of happy to your space?
The pom pom maker looks a bit complicated, but it is actually pretty simple to use. You just wrap yarn around both sides, snip down the center with some scissors and then finish up by tying the pom together with a bit of yarn.
I left the ends of the yarn I tied the pom together with long so that I could use them to tie the poms onto my basket like so:
Thanks for the inspiration, Claire! And, be sure to stay tuned, because I'm thinking up more fun things to do with these pom poms!
