Hooray for the internet! Firstly, because it has been gone all week and now I have it back, and secondly because it brought me these glorious pom pom makers! I was umming and ahhing about getting them for ages, then I saw how cheap you can get them on eBay and finally went for it. And let me tell you... I am obsessed. They are so SO much easier than the old cardboard ring method - you can make each one in less than 5 minutes. To test them out today I decorated my shop notebook.
This DIY is so easy it doesn't really need a step by step. I just made three pom poms with the two smallest pom pom "looms" (that's a fun sentence to say). The loom allows you to wrap the wool one side at a time which is what makes it so quick - no more squeezing the ball of wool through the middle of the ring! I then used my glue gun to fix them to the notebook and decorated with washi tape and my trusty stamps.
Has anyone else discovered the wonder of these? I'm probably a bit late to the game... But now I'm predicting a house full of garlands and mobiles :)
