these little flowers only took about 10 minutes to make & are perfect for spring time or for people with cats who like to eat live plants. i think they look so sweet & dreamy, i smile every time i see them... ran even noticed them without me saying anything.
sticks or dowels cut to desired length
about 2 yrds of yarn for each flower
a pom pom maker... store bought or homemade
a small length of matching yarn or string
1. start wrapping your yarn around the pom.pom maker. i cut my yarn in two 1 yrd lengths & wrap them at the same time. you can make your own pom pom maker by cutting a circle inside a circle of cardboard. for this size pom pom (approx 1 3/4" diameter) the outside circle of the maker needs to be 1 1/2" in diameter & the circle in the middle is approx 1/2".
3. use a small length of yarn or string to tie around the bundle of yarn.
4. trim any wayward yarn & fluff up the pom.pom so it looks all pretty.
5. slide it onto the end of a stick. you can glue it if you would like or if you dont glue, you can chnage pom.pom colors for seasons or holidays & dont have to worry about breaking the sticks in storage.
