I was a little disappointed with the pom pom maker as it was not as sturdy as I thought it would be. The first pom pom I tried to make fell apart, so will have to get more practice in, but on the whole not too bad. Thank you
If you make of have made pom poms the old fashioned way for years growing up (2 card rings and endless sewing in the hole), this is almost mindblowing!
So much easier, quicker and a more perfect result than I could ever imagine. You simply wind round the 2 semi circles and clip them together before cutting (the maker holds the wool perfectly and you can cut all the way around), tie the middle and simply pop open the maker to make a near perfect pom pom (just trim any excess).
Seriously, if you ever want to make your own pom poms, buy the Clover Pom Pom maker, I can't recommend it highly enough!
Two strongly made frames that should last years.Good quality product but the instructions could be clearer ....both sets of arms need to be wound and closed before cutting .very easy to use once we got the hang of it .Makes pom pom making quick and easy. Our 7 year old grandson managed to make several with a little help with the cutting ..sharp scissors are essential the ones with slim points worked best for us.
These are excellent little things! I needed to make a pom pom to go on top of my Daughters hat so did one in the usual manner with 2 cardboard donuts. I fiddled and fiddled and kept loosing the threads of yarn from the middle (I havent made pom poms for years I might add)
After a couple of attempts I managed and it does look good on top of said hat but saw one of these on youtube and had to get one! They are used in the same way as the cardboard donuts but much much easier! The picture for this product is coming out as a scarf with poms on, on my computer so there is no ref to follow but I have put in a link for the larger ones to show what they are like.
They consist of 2 separate pieces with a spindle in between that can separate the 2 halves. Each side of the donut can be pulled up to reveal a half moon. You wrap the yarn around the side closing each half as you fill it. Once full enough you cut between the middle of the half moon and keep it folded into the donut shape, then wrap yarn around the top and tie tightly then gently pull the 2 segments apart. Voila!! A pom pom! No fiddling one handed with the yarn that secures the pom pom. Easy!
Sadly these are too small to make a pom pom for my other Daughters hat so I ordered the Large Pom Pom Maker A brilliant idea and now they make a heart
Fabulous gadget. The instructions on the back of the packet only make sense if you actually know already how to use it, so thank you YouTube, you helped me out there! But once I'd got the hang of it, it's terrific, quick, and actually really easy. There are going to be pom-poms on everything from now on!
My granddaughter and I enjoyed making pompoms with this item - I had ordered two other sizes: extra small and large from which we made a few pompoms of varying sizes. We had a great time using all three sizes between us. During the summer holidays, we shall use them all again and again - thus fulfilling our ambition to make the most of the summer holiday crafting - utilizing many different formats.
The MOST brilliant piece of kit for making pompoms with total ease. Even my children can wrap the yarn around each side of this cleverly engineered device and I just help with the tying off. Last Christmas we made an entire Christmas wreath out of green and red pompoms. Love it so much I bought more for my niece's birthday. The days of using two pieces of circular card and threading yarn through a hole in the middle (for what seemed like forever) have long gone.
A very clever little gadget, makes lovely fluffy Pom-poms - I have now got one in each size and have been busy making pom-poms for all the hats I've been knitting for my grandchildren. The small one makes a marvellous red nose for Rudolph on a Christmas jumper!
