I added some really, really bright acrylic yarn, and a pom-pom tool:
And these guys were born!
They seem fond of the odd parlor games to be found in our house, so they have a wack sense of humor.
They were really fun to make, but now I'm thinking about buying another crafting tool, the Clover Brand pom pom maker. The one I was using produces a sloppy, uneven pom pom. I may try this again sometime this year. It's be fun to have a few of these guys peeking out from the branches of next year's Christmas tree.
This is a link to the Clover pom pom maker, to show what they look like:
It looks like this item will make a fuller, more consistent pom pom. Maybe I'll talk myself into getting one for Easter crafting. Yeah, that's it! I have an excuse to buy one now! I'll do a comparison post later on... :)
