How to make animal pom-poms - Mr Printables Blog
After making those flower pompoms, I couldn’t help making more. Maybe it’s called procrastination. I have hundreds of other things on my to-do list, but then this week I thought, well, hey let’s just make more pompoms! Among many other ideas, I went for having a go at animal pompoms. It’s just that kids love animals most and that’s what matters here on Mr P! They are a little more difficult to make if you’ve never tried making pompoms, so in that case, start with the flower pompoms here then you’ll be able to easily move on to more complex designs. Basically the method is the same. Start with the nose and mouth in the middle, wrap around the surrounding face color on top of this, a little wrapping floating in the middle for the eyes then finishing with more face color. Place a pencil (or your finger) on one end and wrap extra yarn around it a bit like this. I had a comment from a reader who thought my pompoms looked perfect and hers weren’t. Before the trimming: a sad koala. Yay!

Cran Judy-Ann Think back to your 21st birthday and what are the things that you are most excited about? Of Course. You are now legally allowed to drink and buy alcohol. If you are the "ideal" 21 year old, you have not experienced too much in drinking and are pretty new to this whole world of mixed drinks. So often the main question that stumps many new drinkers is the simple "What would you like today?". I often laugh when I think about a story that my Brother-In-Law tells about his experience in ordering his first drink.

bulletin boards I am finally getting around to posting photos of my art room this year. I try to change things up each year, just to keep it fresh. You can view last year's version here.

DIY Star Ornaments – Holiday Craft – Hand Made with Yarn and Pom-poms We made these this weekend and I love how they turned out. My vision of sitting with my girls by the fire, joyously wrapping pipe cleaners with yarn, was interrupted by reality. It snowed! So while the kids built sled ramps and threw snowballs at each other, I sat by the fire alone and made these guys. Alone by the fire…yes, it was heavenly!
