You're So Very Creative

Welcome to Your So Very Creative! This week I actually decided to add to the party myself! I think I could have done this in three posts but oh well.

I wanted a Pom Pom Maker but didn't have one. I was getting sick of trying to get uniform looking pom pom from winding yarn around my fingers so I decided to come up with my own Pom Pom Maker. If you want to make one you can download the template I made  HERE. Now that you have your Pom Pom Maker on to my project....

I used the 3" Pom Pom maker to make my project.

To use your Pom Pom Maker you will Cut a long piece of yarn and start wrapping it through the ring. 

If the yarn runs out, continue with a new piece securing the ends while wrapping. You can change colors at any time, like I did above. Continue wrapping your ring until you have a thick covered ring. The thicker the yarn is covered on your ring the fuller your pom pom will be. 

With sharp scissors cut the yarn between the two rings, all the way around.


This is what your pom pom should look like so far.

Now take and cut another piece of yarn and place between the two rings wrapping around the pom pom yarn and tie a tight a double knot.

Carefully remove your pom pom from your Pom Pom Maker.

Trim your ends from tying and your done! Or....

Use a new BBQ scrubber and carefully brush over your pom pom while holding your pom pom firmly in your hand. (couldn't take a picture of this step while doing it, sorry.)

Trim your fluffy pom pom into a heart shape.

Grab a headband and cut a piece of felt to shape to go behind your pom pom.

Holding your felt in place on your headband add glue and glue your heart pom pom on top.

Your done, you have a cute Valentine headband!

So now what have you been up to?
