I love pom poms and also remember when they had kits for making animals. It came with two different size pom makers and a few extra bits of color so you could decorate them.
Nice, great technique to make the pom-poms. Thanks for sharing!
do you sell this at etsy.com or ebay for some reason i remember this somewhere but i cant remember
These things were the rage last year in Tokyo - so far it looks like they'll be back again this year :)
WAIT but how would you wash it?? wont the cardboard get all soggy??
you remove the cardboard..just reread step 2. After you cut around the yarn and tie the yarn in the middle you can slide the cardboard off. I once made a larger version way back in high school and made it into a creature.
I have three little girls that are very excited about trying this project. Really great idea.
That makes me so happy! You'll have to post pictures of the finished product :)
Cool :) My daughter would love it as well.
