I totally forgot about this post! I started it months ago, and it just caught my attention now sitting in the drafts column.
So here it is, the tutorial on how I created the fabric pom poms for Bug’s baptism. The photos are pretty self explanatory, but here as the basic steps:
1. Tie string or ribbon around a styrofoam ball, leaving enough string attached to hang once completed.
2. Cut out a crazy amount of 3″ fabric circles. For a 3″ ball, I used 1 metre of fabric. For the larger balls, (I can’t remember the exact size…6′ or 7″…) I used around 3.5 metres. Then follow the picture below…that’s just way easier then me trying to use words to explain what to do
3. Glue the pieces of fabric to the ball, starting in the middle and working your way out.
4. Repeat. A lot!
5. Ta-da!! It does take quite a bit of time, but the finish product looks super pretty 😉
