Happy Monday everyone! I had a brain-wave for this weeks project whilst reading your comments for the heart brooch I posted last week. A few of you commented on how the brooch would be perfect for Valentines Day so I put on my thinking cap for another suitable project for Valentines Day (which is 3 and a half weeks away).
Here it is – my heart shaped pom-pom garland.
If you can make pom-poms then you can make this.
… and 2 sizes of Clover Pom-Pom maker, the 1 inch for the extra small balls and a 2.5 inch for the large pom-pom. If you need a video tutorial on how to use it click here.
I made 6 small pom-pom balls and 5 of the larger balls. To create the heart shape of the larger pom-poms I got some scissors and cut them to shape – it really is as easy as that.
Have a bag on your lap while you trim them as it’s a messy business 🙂 When all the trimming is completed then thread the balls and hearts onto a length of the same yarn, alternating them as you go. NB. When threading on the heart pom-poms do so towards the upper half of the pom-pom so that it hangs the right way up when displayed (otherwise you get an upside down heart as there’s more weight in the upper half).
Hopefully this has inspired you to have a go yourself.
