Get started by meeting Christine and learning about how her obsession with pom-poms began. See how a simple conversation with her publisher about pom-poms became a new book and how Christine began exploring the formats and challenges that pom-poms offer. Then, take a quick look at the topics that are covered in this course.

Start your pom-pom making journey by learning the basics of pom-pom creation. Christine shows you some of her favorite pom-pom wreaths from the archives and goes through the materials you need to get started. She reveals some of her secrets for selecting the best yarn before explaining how to use color palettes and how to find inspiration for new projects.

Start making your pom-poms with the pom-pom makers. See some of Christine’s tricks for using other household items as pom-pom makers and get some tips on trimming your pom-poms to achieve a perfect finish.

Finally, bring it all together in the form of a beautiful pom-pom wreath. Learn how to cover the base of the wreath with a simple crochet-style knot and see the best way to place your pom-poms. You can cover the whole wreath in pom-poms or be more selective and choose only the most eye-catching. Then, learn how to make a hanging hook for your wreath and discover some alternative ways to use your pom-pom skills for decorating your home or wardrobe.

What is this course's project?

For your final project, create a pom-pom wreath approximately 25cm in diameter that is personalized with your own theme and color scheme. You will make about 20 pom-poms to complete the wreath.
