How to make a personalised pom pom bauble…
Fancy making something super cute but also super easy? These delightful pom pom baubles make gorgeous personalised place settings for your Christmas table – or a lovely gift that your guests can hang on the tree.
You will need:
Craft essentials (available at Hobbycraft)
- Yarn in two colours
- Oasis gold metallic wire stick
- Typewriter alphabet wooden stamps
- Hampton Art Fiji nights dye ink pad
- Wooden eyelet tags
- Fillable glass hanging bauble
- Kraft and gold twine
Using the smallest pom pom maker in the pack, start by making two pom poms for each bauble you want to create. Use two different colours that complement each other. Leave a length of spare yarn hanging from each pom pom to attach to the glass bauble later.
Wrap a length of the Oasis gold metallic wire around the lengths of spare yarn on the two pom poms to fasten them together.
Snip the wire and yarn to shorten it slightly, leaving just enough length to fasten to the bauble.
Using the letter stamps and ink pad, stamp your guests’ names onto the wooden tags to add that personalised touch.
Thread the Oasis gold metallic wire through the hole in the wooden tag. Twist to create a single length of wire.
Trim the ends to ensure they’re neat and tidy.
Wrap the wire from the wooden tag around the pom pom fastening to create one hanging piece.
Using the mini glue gun, allow a drop of glue to fall into the top bowl of the glass bauble.
Working quickly, before the glue starts to harden, place the fastening of the pom poms and the wooden tag into the glue. Leave the bauble upside down while the glue dries.
Tie gold twine through the hole in the top of the bauble, creating a loop. Once that’s done, you’re ready to place the baubles on the table or hang them on the tree.
