Now let’s make some pom pom flowers – DIY style!
- Green felt
- 16 – 18 gauge wire, cut into 14″ lengths
- Green florist tape
Step 1: Wrap felt around the palm of your hand 100 times tightly. Yes, you probably will lose all feelings to your fingers doing this!
Step 2: Carefully remove yarn from your hand, making sure to keep the bundle together. With a separate short length of yarn tie a tight knot around the centre of the bundle.
Step 3: Snip through the end of the loops and fluff out the strands.
Step 4: Tidy up ends by trimming it with scissors.
Step 5: Cover the raw wire with the green florist tape by winding diagonally and making sure to overlap the tape slightly.
Step 6: Cut some leaf shapes from your green felt leaving a tab at the base so you can secure to your stem. Fold and iron leaf for a natural curve. Use florist tape to adhere.
Step 7: Add a touch of glue to the end of the wire before inserting it into the centre of the pom pom.
There you have it, an easy step by step with pictures so you can go make your very own pom pom flowers and display anywhere you think needs a bit of cheering up.
