How to make a snowball pom pom

November 23, 2011

The internet is great. You find lots of people who share your strange obsessions. I’ve been a little bit obsessed with pom poms recently (and I said POM POMS people – not anything else – I now know how your minds work – there is neither an r or an n in the word). I was thinking about how to make poms poms at half term because I wanted to make some into ice cream for the girls when they play tea parties. Bizarrely my mum had been making them with my nephews at the same time, so I could get her to show me how it was done. It is one of the activities I could remember doing when I was a child but I couldn’t remember how you finished them off. Since then I have been in a frenzy of pom pom making.

Anyway blogging Queen, Christine Mosler has made a vlog about how you use a pom pom machine. They look great and are much quicker and easier way to make pom poms. In the mean time, she dared me to do a vlog of how to make pom poms using cardboard. Obviously I am crushingly embarrassed by this but I can’t resist a dare, so here it is. In fact please don’t watch it I beg you. Just skip right over and look at the pretty pictures of pom poms and we can all pretend it never happened.

Don’t worry about how you cut them out – it doesn’t have to be neat.

Lots of snow coloured wool

The big question is: what do you do once you’ve made them? Obviously snowmen, you just need a hat and scarf and some googly eyes. I’m also planning to make a few and create a winter sensory play area for the twins, using their ball pool. If you look behind me in the vlog you will see the angel tepee we have been building which is nearly full of pom poms. It’s just about finished so I might do a post on that later in the week.
