Red Heart sent me this pom & tassel maker to test and review and the timing couldn’t be better. You see, I’m working on a project that requires a number of pompoms and I was not looking forward to making them all individually. This pom & tassel maker comes to the rescue with a neat design that allows you to make up several poms at the same time and in sizes from 1″ to 12″! Voila! I got all my poms made in no time at all. If your curious what I’m making with all these poms, come back next week for the finished project and instructions!
You can find this cool tool at your favorite craft store or order it directly from Red Heart Yarns
I’ve put together a quick video to show you how it’s done, but if you prefer the photo tutorial, scroll down. And, don’t forget to scroll to the end for the Giveaway entry form!
Let me show you how it works!
The tool comes with three sections and two pegs and is available in three fun colors, I love the red! You will use one, two or the three sections together depending upon the size of the pom or tassel you want and how many you want to make.
Next you will slide 12″ strands of yarn into the grooves of the tool at specific intervals determined by the size pom or tassel you want to make – don’t worry, the easy instructions tell you where to place them!
Now, just wrap the yarn around the pegs. You want to do this from the bottom up and snug but not too tight or it will pull in the pegs and your poms won’t be uniform in size. Here you will have to use some judgement — the fuller you want the pompom, the more wraps you will need to make!
Then, pull up the 12″ strands of yarn that were laying in the grooves and tie them tightly in place. Next, take a sharp scissor and cut midway between each tie to form the poms.
Trim and fluff your pompoms and that’s all there is too it! I did not illustrate the step by step for the tassels, but the concepts are the same and the instructions that come with the tool are really clear, so I know you won’t have any trouble.
And of course I want you to try this tool, so there’s a giveaway too!
