Hi there, HowDoesShe Gals! Today we have an adorable and fun tutorial by guest poster, Heidi from Made by Heidi: Sew.Craft.Create.
We love her blog and have been inspired by her many unique creations. Isn’t she just as adorable as her crafts? Yes… yes she is! We are so lucky to have her teach us how to make some sweet and DURABLE pom poms. Wouldn’t we all like the decorative pom poms that we make to actually LAST for another occasion? Heidi shows us how. – Bobbi
I was walking by a cupcake shop in St. George, Utah, when I noticed the most beautiful pom-poms hanging in the window display.
I looked closer and realized they were made of cupcake liners (ingenious!) and I thought, “I can make that!” So I went to work…
These little beauties are unbelievably easy to make and take very little time (under an hour! perfect for the mom on the go!)
(p.s. they are MUCH sturdier than tissue paper pom-poms!! believe me!)
Colored pom-pom: mini cupcake liners
It took about 100 mini liners and 40 average-sized liners to cover a 10 inch (diameter) ball. The amount of liners needed will vary depending on how you wish to space them on the ball.
Doesn’t this clever idea have you curious? Tweet, tweet!
And don’t forget to check out her tutorial to make this adorable memory game AND a case to carry it in. SMART!
Have a happy, crafty day!
