The Daily Pompom No. 3


My Boy celebrated his birthday last weekend and came downstairs to find hanging pompoms in place of the usual balloons. They are still there hanging up a week later - much to D's annoyance! (But the kids love them and so do I!) The pompom garland is definitely my favourite of this week's quick projects, and the inspiration behind my recent doodle

The picture is of a little Noro Taiyo garland I made in about half an hour using the 35mm pompom maker. This Noro has cotton in it and isn't at all fluffy, leaving rather scrappy looking pompoms, so I left them untrimmed and simply tied them onto a doubled-over string of the same yarn using uneven bows, for a shabby look. Using washi tape, the garland can be hung, moved and re-hung very easily. I love it and think more will be popping up around the house over the summer.  

If you'd like the chance to win a set of four pompom makers in different sizes, be sure to comment on the 'giveaway' post before Saturday 26th when I'll be selecting a winner!
