Until a week or so ago I had ever even thought of heart shaped pompoms but I saw this at a craft shop and it started my brain working overtime!
Thing is that they wanted $25 for it *_* and after reading the instructions it basically looked like it just made regular pompoms that you then trimmed into a heart shape. Well I can do that at home for free!
There are various ways to make pompoms, when I was a kid we cut 2 cardboard circles and threaded the yarn through. Now that I’m older the novelty of cutting out cardboard circles has worn off so I take the lazy way:
What you need:
Start wrapping the yarn around the eyeshadow.
Keep wrapping until you have a decent amount like this:
Slide the yarn off…
Hold it like this…
Use another piece of yarn to tie around the middle tightly or if you want to take the easier way: a thin rubber band. If you want to hang it off something you can leave the piece of yarn long.
Cut all of the loops…
And it will look like this:
Repeat on the other side and you have a basic pompom!
Now it’s time to trim it into a heart! Use you scissors to cut the bottom into a basic point.
Then cut a wedge out of the top to make a heart.
Now you’ve got the basic shape it’s time to trim with some small sharp scissors until it’s perfect.
Her you can see I’ve een working on the right side while the left is still long and messy:
You might want put down a sheet of paper or something to catch all the fluff that you’re cutting off XD
Very cute craft project and once you get in the swing of things they don’t take very long to make 😀
Now to think of where to hang them all!
