Pom-Poms

Some months ago I bought a pack of Pom-Pom makers.They look a bit weird but how hard can they be to use?  After all we used to make our own Pom-Pom makers by cutting out two circles of cardboard (usually from dad’s cornflake packet, which didn’t go down to well at breakfast time), cutting a circular hole in the middle, winding the wool around, a bit of snipping and voila! One perfect Pom-Pom.  

All very well but I couldn’t work out what to do with them.  The instructions were pretty poor so I had to resort to a You Tube video to find out what to do.  And success!  My first Pom-Pom.Not as good as I hoped it would be but not bad for a first attempt.

And here it is attached to the Christmas Wreath.So, with apologies to my husband and sons, and any other visitors to my house, this is what will be gracing the front door over the festive period.  It’s go to be better than the rather sorry Wreath we’ve been using over the last 25 years – it was quite pretty when we first got it but it’s now so old that robin on it has gone bald.
