Let the merry making begin with plenty of pom poms! These step-by-step instructions dispel the mystery of making the perfect pom pom, not just a one-color classic, but special designs, too, like all-over sprinkles, patches of color blocks, and scattered polka dots. You'll also learn how to combine designs for your own custom remixes. We used a fun bouquet of our Pocket Posy, a great yarn for long-lasting fluffiness, as well as our Pom Pom Maker Set, a brightly colored Plexiglass tool set that includes two U-shaped makers, plus six trim guides for giving tidy pom pom haircuts. We say, bring pom poms to the party… And the more the merrier!
