Hey girl, hey! Our pom pom makers are in the HOUSE! I’m crafting with them today and using fabric to make some cute flowers! Check out the video below, or just follow along here for all the details.
Lizzy and Erin Woodshop: Pom pom makers
Dollar Tree: Canvas, fabric, metal vase (Dollar Tree calls it a “hanging holder”)
Walmart: Waverly Antique Wax
Stash: Hymnal sheets, twine, greenery and yellow flowers
Amazon: Sanding sponge, Mod Podge Click here to check out my crafting essentials (This is an Amazon affiliate link and I may receive a small compensation for items purchased from this link.)
Let’s make it!
I began by painting Mod Podge onto my canvas, then added the hymnal sheets.
Once the canvas was covered, I sanded the edges down with my sanding sponge.
TIP: You can copy hymnal pages to use for your project. Other backgrounds might be scrapbook paper, fabric or corrugated cardboard (wet the cardboard and separate layers).
I wanted a vintage look to my vase, so I painted it with Waverly Antique Wax. While it was still wet, I dabbed it off with a paper towel.
For my pom pom flowers, I used our very own Lizzy and Erin PomPom Maker Kit!
All you have to do is place a length of twine between the two wood pieces of your maker. (Leave a good bit at ends so you can tie it later (see image below).
Then wrap your fabric (or yarn) around the “C” shape of your maker. I put different strips of patterns on mine, just wrap strips of whatever colors / patterns you choose, or use a solid color / colors!
Once the maker is full enough (you can decide the fullness), tie those ends of twine tight.
Cut along the OUTER edge where the “C” shape is. You will be separating your fabric strips.
Remove the maker pieces, fluff out your fabric and you have a pom pom!
I wanted mine to be a flower, so I placed a button on the center and hot glued a glue stick to the back.
I used floral foam to hold my arrangement.
TIP: For permanent display, you can hot glue your foam into the vase (caution: the metal will get HOT) or just snug it in and change it out from season to season.
Then I arranged my flowers in the vase and hot glued it to my surface.
This hanger is super simple: just twist some fabric into a rope, tie a knot on each end and hot glue the ends to the back. I always glue on pieces of craft sticks for extra security!
And here it is! Y’all I was in a hurry to take Mama Susie to the doctor, but I love this project and think it came out gorgeous!
Mama Susie and Aunt Criddy were here for a visit, and Aunt Criddy was doing her THING, y’all!
(Susie is my mom and Criddy is my OLDER sister!)
