My first creative post woop woop! Wish me luck people’s.

Hello my Pretties.

Well, after some expert tutorial advice from my best mate Bedlam & Bird I feel I may just be able to post my first actual craft related post and maybe even share on Facebook, ooh do I dare? (Did you notice that link I did up there, pretty clever huh?)

Okay so, I thought I would show you a very basic project I worked on over Christmas.

This is one of the easiest, quickest and most rewarding projects. It took me about an hour and cost me about £7.

The excellent tutorial I followed is on the lovely blog Best Birthdays. I found this on Pinterest along with most of the other ideas I have ever made. I bought 5 contrasting balls  of uber cheap yarn from the Wimbledon Sewing Centre (my go to place for all things Haberdashery) and tied and cut till had these adorable huge pom pom’s. Then I simply tied them onto ribbon and Voila! the cutest pom pom garland ever!

Here are a few photo’s that might help to use along with the blog link above.

Make sure to tie it super tight otherwise the strands fall out. One tip I totally ignored on the first pom pom is to make sure that you leave a long strand when you tie it in the middle so that you can hold it when cutting the loops.

After you cut the top as well you have this little puddle of loveliness. I know it looks like a mess but once you have taken your trusty shears to it it will become beautiful!

Yes it’s true you lose a lot of yarn after shaping the pom pom but I am going to use it to stuff a pillow me thinks so that there’s no wastage.

Let me know what you think and have a fabulous, safe and creative New year! Big Love and God bless!

    I have made pompoms when I was a child but I never thought of using yarn balls straight away! What a clever idea!
