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!
A quick and easy way to make pom-poms. I had purchased a larger set but my grandson took control of making pom-poms for the little hats I was knitting, I just didn't have a look in! These 2 smaller ones are ideal, I now have a set of my own and even purchased another set for my friend as a little surprise.Recommend these to any one who makes crafty things.
Brilliant design so easy to use Why oh why did this not exist when I was a child so much time fiddling with cardboard circles would have been saved This gadget let's you knock out a pom pom in a couple of minutes you just wind over the 2 half's tie up and you are done it's so easy
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.
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
