Deck the halls with pompoms
in this follow-up to the previous Twenty To Make Fabulous
Pompoms (also reviewed on this site). Make decorations
for tree, table, walls and more using just leftover yarn,
pipe cleaners (aka chenilles) and those cardboard circles.
For those unfamiliar with making pompoms, there are two pages
showing how to use both the traditional card circles and the
modern pompom makers. The rest of the book is filled with
twenty projects, each featuring a page-sized photograph of
the finished item displayed, a smaller picture of it on its
own, instructions, and what you need. This includes tools
as well as materials, always a good touch so you have everything
you need before you start. The instructions are very detailed
and can look daunting beside a fairly simple model, but include
everything for foolproof crafting. Projects include a robin,
snowman, Santa and Mrs Claus, bunting, a Christmas tree, stocking,
party glass markers, napkin ties etc. All use inexpensive
items, many of which crafters might have left over from other
projects and show that you can do a lot with a little. Children
and adults will both have a ball (or perhaps a bauble) making
their holiday decoration personal with this wee book.
If you cannot find a good range of origami materials locally
for a list of suppliers.
