How to Make Pom Pom Flowers

How to Make Pom Pom Flowers
I have a thing for flowers that look like pom poms. Mums, allium, chive blossoms, dahlias – love ‘em! Since fresh flowers aren’t always in the budget, and because I have a brown thumb, I started thinking about what I could do to brighten up our apartment with flowers without actually using flowers. Soon, the idea for some sort of pom pom flower started bouncing around in my head, and this is what I came up with. How to make pom poms? I googled around and found a number of tutorials, including several that use the cardboard donut method, which can be found here, here, and here. Though my method basically follows the Bella Dia tutorial, I have made some slight variations, so I’ve posted my method below. What you’ll need for the project: yarn small, sharp scissors wire cutters a hot glue gun and glue sticks materials for the stems (paper or fabric covered floral wire or my favorite, branches or twigs) The more times you wrap the yarn, the fuller your pom pom will be. Ta da!

That Jolie Girl: Felt Flower Tutorial I've been a bit obsessed with felt flowers for the last few years. It started when my sis asked me to make her wedding bouquet and 3 bridesmaids bouquets. I posted a tutorial on how I made her bouquet that you can see here. I'm so glad I got to create something so important for my sis's wedding. It was such a wonderful labor of love.
