Pom-Poms Make Us Cheer!
Have you jumped on the pom-pom bandwagon? Yes…I have! For me, it began with a great wreath from It’s Overflowing. Aimee did a great knockoff of Anthropologie’s pom-pom wreath. Next, I fell for Kelly’s flowers at Eclectically Vintage. Both talented ladies used a fork to make their creations. You heard right…a fork!
I began brainstorming how I’d like to use the little fluff balls in my decor. With a beautiful wreath and flower bouquet already floating around out there, my thought was, “why not use them as you would use decorative balls?!?!”
So…I grabbed my yarn and a fork and got to work!
I made a discovery…my forks are very slender. Who knew?! My first pom-pom was really tiny and not very puffy. Therefore I tried a few other things and discovered that I liked the size of them using two of my fingers. I simply wrapped the yarn around two fingers instead of a fork. You must wrap the yarn anywhere from 25-50 times around your fork…or fingers. You will need to find the “look” you want for your pom-poms.
Once you have the yarn wrapped, you then take a separate piece of string and tie it around the middle of the wrapped bundle. Tie a tight knot to secure the yarn.
Next take scissors and cut the loops formed by wrapping the yarn.
The last step is to separate and fluff the yarn. Be sure to trim the yarn to get the size and shape you want.
I made an arrangement of my pom-poms and pieces of wood from some potpourri.
I love the crystal with the mercury glass.
The red really pops and I love the mix of textures. The softness of the yarn against the wood adds interest to the display.
How fun are the pom-poms?!
I remember wearing them on my roller skates! They were fun then and they’re fun now!…just in a different way!
