Making them with friends is the most fun and the projects would be good for tweens and on up. The simplicity of a pom pom, made using a few different techniques works for all sorts of projects and this book will just get you started. Full color photographs and well written instructions along with a complete pattern section including templates to make the pom pom makers make it easy to create the projects shown. No fancy techniques, just lots of fun.
The first part of the book is the projects. 25 and all of them are simple enough to do in an afternoon and some of them can be done in an hour. I like instant gratification projects! The end of the book covers the various techniques for making pom poms and for stitching things that need stitching. Even better? There is a whole section on wrapping styles. So you can make pom poms that are dotted, striped, speckled or half and half. I want to try the "beach ball" effect to make big rainbow pom poms that I can wear in my hair.
I've made the hedgehog from the cover, the coffee filter pom poms and the cupcake wrapper ornaments and plan to make a lot more projects from the book with my daughter.
[I received a complimentary copy of the book to review on my craft blog- Don't Eat the Paste. My review is my honest opinion of the product.]
The book starts off with projects separated into three categories – home, wear, and party. There’s a variety of projects, some are embellishments added to things, while others are more elaborate. I always think it’s great to have a book with a wide range of project difficulty. It can be intimidating to open a book that is full of large, in depth projects. It’s nice to have some smaller projects that I could finish quickly during nap time.
After the projects there is a whole section called “Pom-Pom 101″ which covers everything you could possibly need to know about pom-poms. It expands far beyond what my idea of a pom-pom was, making them with everything from coffee filters to old t-shirts. And the book gives four different ways you can make pom-poms, each one ideal for different materials or applications.
One of the most fun parts is the section on different wrapping techniques to make patterns in your pom-poms like stripes or polka dots. This is a really well done instructional manual for so many different techniques of making pom-poms, the photos are bright and fun and the instructions are really clear and concise.
Good value for money.
We had a lot of fun trying out all the different types of pom-poms. We made a tiny necklace out of string which turned out so cute (I really want to get some baker's twine for making more jewelry).
We also used multi-colored and single color yarns to make several sizes of pom-poms using different methods described in the book!. We tried out the cardboard "C', the finger method and the fork method. All of them seemed to work equally well, but I think I prefer the cardboard technique, it seems to allow me more control over the pom-poms.
We really enjoyed creating pom-pom crafts, like the garland we made for a fluffy, coconut frosted party cake, decorations for the Christmas tree, and also hot gluing them on to a cut out cardboard form in a wreath shape. My next project: a rainbow rug made out of t-shirt pom-poms! I think it will be a fun way to recycle some old t-shirts.
