Mother’s Day is coming up on May 11! Instead of cut flowers that wilt and die, how about some a sweet bunch of pom pom flowers that never go bad?
This sweet forever bouquet is a Mother’s Day gift idea from Michael Ann Made, and it’s a great opportunity to bust that yarn stash! Tiny pom poms are a cute use for the end of a skein, and you can even combine smaller amounts of yarn to make multicolored poms from even the smallest bits in your stash.
Here’s what you need to make your bouquet of pom pom flowers:
- scrap cardboard
- small fallen branches, cocktail skewers, leftover Chinese food chopsticks, or paper straws to use as stems. Anything long and skinny will work, really!
Raise your hand if you have all of those things in your stash right this second! This tutorial is sort of a mash-up, so here are the resources you need:
+ Mini Pom Pom Tutorial – to make the poms without a pom pom maker
+ Colorful Pom Pom Flowers – for how to attach the stems
+ Pom Pom Flowers – Michael Ann’s roundup of tutes and more ideas for pom pom flowers
