Pom Pom Love

As yet I still can not knit or crochet and ages ago a friend gave me a load of wool scraps which have been at in a storage jar starring at me.  So I decided to do something with them.


I bought a three set Classic Knit Pom Pom maker (it was only £2.99) from Dunelm Mill and me and the boys sat and made all the wool in to pom poms.  I really would love a clover pom pom maker as they are much easier to use and also enable you to make fluffier and fuller balls, but was really impressed with the inexpensive ones we have.


Then those pom poms sat in a jar where we kept touching and stroking them and occasionally trying to juggle them until I cam e across Heather's post at Growing Spaces on a pom pom garland,

So we threaded nearly 50 pom poms on to some thread and rather than leave a gap we decided to cram them all on, the more the merrier and in order to brighten up these winter days we hung them in the craft room.



It is a riot of colour and we love it.  Now to find some more wool as the boys want one each for their rooms.

  1. I saw Christine Mosler raving about pom pom makers ages ago. Personally I stick to the old cardboard doughnuts method. Although it does take ages!

    I love your garland.

    1. This way is fast and fun. Also really easy for the boys to do.

  4. What a great idea!! I am an avid knitter and a very new beginner to crochet but have always loved pom poms and sometimes still add them to my sell able items eg, hats, draught excluders, laptop covers and they just make a huge difference. Would never have thought of this idea :)

    1. I am a failed knitter and hooker. I just can not get to grips with it. We love making pom poms, they are addictive
