You guys!! I am happy to be back with another challenge completed for Michael's Makers! This month our challenge was to try new things - classes they offer or kits. I wasn't able to attend a class this time, but I have taken some of the cake decorating classes in the past and LOVED them. Anyway - I have been wanting to make some pom pom wall decor for a LONG time, but I never found the time to make a million pom poms! However, when I was at Michael's looking at their kits I saw that there was a pom pom making kit & decided to give it a go. You can make 6-7 pom poms at a time with this little contraption, making it SO much faster and easier!
The kit also came with yarn but I bought some yarn separately because I had a different color scheme in mind for my wall decor. It's a pretty straightforward system for making pom poms but I did find this youtube video helpful just to visualize what I would need to do.
After I made a bunch of pom poms I got out my glue gun, cut out a circle of poster board, and went to work deciding how to arrange the poms. As you can see I had some other colors of pom poms made but ultimately ended up sticking with just blue, white and gray pom poms!
I arranged them how I wanted and then used hot glue to attach them to the foam board. Then I turned it around and hot glued the hanging hardware on. (This is such a lightweight material I decided using screws wouldn't make very much sense.)
After that I was able to hang it on a nail in the wall! Soooo easy, you guys.
Here is the full tutorial:
- Make yarn pom poms and arrange them how you would like on a round piece of foamboard or wood.
- Hot glue pom poms in place and let it cool.
- Attach hanging hardware to the back of your wall decor.
- Hang on the wall!
Have you ever made yarn pom poms before?!
