Welcome to the Blog Tour for Let’s Make Pom Poms by Katie Scott! Are you ready to make all sorts of adorable projects with pom poms?
For today’s post I got a 4 star-review for the book (it was so much fun and I can’t wait to get started on the projects), plus I will tell you about the author/book.
Let’s get started.
First up thanks to Rachel/the author for giving me the opportunity to read this book! All my opinions are my own, and not influenced by a free book.
I know when I was a kid I was totally obsessed with making Pom Poms, so when I saw the opportunity to review this book I grabbed my chance. I needed to see what kind of fun projects you can make with Pom Poms, and if there were any new ones that I hadn’t heard of before.
The book has a ton of fun projects, for instance making a cute penguin, or a friendly alien, or maybe you want to go bigger and make a Christmas tree. Oh my! I haven’t had the chance to try out these projects myself, I was just too busy with wedding/new home + I would have to find a way to make pom poms. Yes, my way of making pom poms is to grab some carton, cut it in circles (big, medium, or small, depending on the project), then add a tiny circle in the middle, and then get to wrapping the thread around it. I never even knew there were special products for making pom poms. I just checked one of the rare (at least, I can’t remember any other big ones) DIY shops (which isn’t located anywhere near me because most of them closed down), and it seems they have at least something. So maybe, if I am nearby I can get that and try out the things in this book. I definitely would like to have the Christmas tree in my home by Christmas.
The instructions on how to make everything are very easy to follow, everything is explained clear and in good order. Each project also has a few photographs to show you how it will look in the end.
I have to say that some projects were a bit more exciting than the others. No offence meant, but if you get all sorts of fun things like trees and snowmen and butterflies and even SUSHI (which I am so going to have to try out), and then another project is to just make coloured pom poms to add to a bouquet, then yeah.
I did think maybe the how to make pom poms should move up to the beginning. I was kind of surprised when the intro skipped right to the making of pom poms and it wasn’t until the end that we learnt of the pom pom makers (what an invention!) and how to make pom poms.
All in all, I had fun to read this book, and I will be keeping this one around as it has some lovely projects. As soon as my life is a bit calmer I will try them out, and then will update this post (or write a tweet) with pictures.
Fun and easy makes for all the family. Get crafty with pom poms with 15 easy to follow step by step guides. Make your own set of fluffy dice, sushi that looks good enough to eat and an everlasting Christmas tree as well as many other exciting projects
