How do I make a Pom Pom?
There is so much that you can do with pom poms, embellish your textile projects, and make a rug for the home, or stick just about anywhere really. Making a pom pom is faster and easier with one of our fabulous looms. The way in which you make your pom will depend on which of our pom-pom makers you have chosen, and we always recommend reading the individual manufacturer's instructions prior to beginning your project.
Open the rings of your pom pom loom, and then tightly wrap one side with wool. You could use one shade, or mix it up for a multi-coloured effect, Then wrap the second half of your maker, before closing the two halves together. Ensure that the closure has been properly connected, before cutting open the pom pom along the outside gap. Finally, take a length of wool and tier it in a knot around the bundle, Remove the loom and trim your pom pom to the desired length. The smaller makers will make a tighter pom pom, whereas the larger ones will make a bigger one.
Do you have any tips for using a loom?
This range also includes weaving looms and kits, there are a few different types of looms available, and the one that you choose will depend on the finished project that you have in mind. There are so many different weaving techniques as well, and we definitely recommend getting one of our weaving kits if you are new to the looming world. When you have set up your loom and yarn, you will need to grow forwards and backwards using an over-under pattern.
It is important that you do not pull your yam too tight, or too lose, as this will mess up the overall design. Continue waving back and farther, pushing the woven section up with your fingers to tighten the effect. We recommend choosing one of our loom kits, particularly if you are new to the craft, as this contains easy to follow instructions as well as all the tools that you could possibly need to weave your way to success.
