Hi All, Hope you all enjoyed the best Sunday? Not sure if I’m quite ready to get back to the normal term time routine of, get up, get kids ready, school run etc . It’s just been too lovely being tucked away in our little cave. Oh well I guess I will just start counting down to the February half term holiday.
As promised here is my little tutorial on the Fork pom pom. I was thinking it would be a bit naff but actually it turned out pretty well. So here goes………..
First make sure you have some wool and a fork, dah!
Then start winding around the prongs like so:
I think it is good to keep winding until you have quite a fat amount of wool, can you even say that? A ‘fat amount of wool’? Oh well, you’ll know what I mean when you see the pic below:
Cut the wool and then cut a long piece which is used to tie around the middle. You thread the fabric through the middle space of the prongs and then wind it up and over the top of the fork also through the middle space.
I tied a loose knot around the middle and then slipped the whole lot off the fork. Then I tied it super tight around the middle with a triple knot. Please excuse the fuzzy photo here but I still want you to see.
Now cut all of the loops like you would do with any pom pom.
Et voila! An almost perfect pom pom.
Now all you need to do is trim it down a bit to make it less oval in shape and roll it between your palms again to make it lovely and spherical (love that word!)
Here is the finished product:
Hmm maybe it still needs a bit more of a trim?
This is definitely very easy and lovely and quick if you want to make pom pom’s with minimum time and energy.
Tomorrow I will show a really cool pom pom machine which is also pretty fast.
Now go forth and create my pretties, mwah ha ha ha.
