{week 37} pompoms

Week 37 was all about bringing back childhood memories of winding wool around and around and around circular templates and ending up with perfect fluffy little spheres.

And whilst that was the easy bit (follow a so-easy-a-child-could-do-it tutorial to make your own) – I then didn’t know what on earth to do with the resultant pompoms.

I turned to twitter for help. SophieBird suggested earrings, ClareBears a necklace,  Katie wondered about deeleyboppers, Deepa thought pompoms would make great garlands, and in the same vein Penny pointed me towards bunting. RareNotions wins the prize (sorry, no actual prize is available) for making the most suggestions including a scarf and pompom characters.

And finally, Lucy suggested this project via pinterest. Yes!

So here are my pompom flowers…

I’m very pleased with the end result. I may have to make a few more. What craft have you tired recently that reminds you of childhood?

EDIT: Thank you Jennifer for the link to Sweet Paul’s pom pom projects – so cute!
