DIY Thursday

Thursday, October 18, 2012

Thursday's are officially the day I will share with you a project that I am working on, this week I introduce the owl pom pom! (Original tutorial I found here) I plan on using these as favors to put in Rylee's first birthday goodie bags... keeping with the owl theme! 

This is a super easy, quick, cheap, and even kid friendly project (with a little supervision).

Your Supplies:
Wool (any kind will work)
Hot Glue Gun
Plastic Google Eyes, Buttons, or Rhinestone stickers

Step 1: Cut out two circles from cardboard (I traced around a water glass), then cut out a smaller circle in the center of each.

Step 2: Put the two circles together and begin to wrap your wool around (Don't wrap too tight).

Step 3: Keep wrapping.

Step 4: Wrap the wool until the small middle circle has no more room.

Step 5: Place your scissors between the two pieces of cardboard and cut through the wool.

Step 6: Cut a piece of wool and wrap it around between the two pieces of cardboard. Tightly tie a knot, then tie a double knot on the other side of the pom to secure it. 

Step 7: Pull off the two pieces of cardboard. Trim the wool you used to tie the pom. (congratulations you've made a pom pom!)

Step 8: Use a hot glue gun to secure the beak, feet, and eyes that you have cut out of felt. Now step back and look at your OWL POM!
