So it’s July and My daughter Mia will be finishing playschool soon (ahh I’m not sure I am ready for the next milestone – even though she is more than ready). So… I have been thinking of ideas to give to the playschool assistants to say thank-you.
Mia wants to make biscuits, so I am planning to bake some and put in a glass jar (if she doesn’t eat them all), but I wanted to give it more of a personal touch. I am going to make a personalised key-ring/ key-chain with an apple pom pom! So cute!
Today’s blog is just showing you how I have made the apple pom pom as I have literally just finished them, and i will update my blog when I have made the personalised part of the key-ring and the biscuits.
Firstly, I find making pom poms much easier using a pom pom maker. The set I have is similar to this one from Hobbycraft: http://www.hobbycraft.co.uk/pompom-makers-4-pack/620265-1000
I used to make a template from cardboard before purchasing the proper pom pom makers, but I find now it is a lot quicker and less faffing about.
Things you’ll need
- Pom Pom maker – (I used the smallest one from my set
- Red wool
- Brown wool or waxed cotton (I used waxed cotton as it will be stronger on the key-ring)
- Green felt
- Glue (this is to stick the leaf to the pom pom – I used my glue gun)
- Key-ring/ Key-chain
