DIY Pompom Pattern

By Blog, DIY

The good thing about staying home these days is there’s lots of free time for our favorite activity, crafting!  We are always looking for new ways to utilize scraps here at Elisabethan, and our DIY pompom is a perfect way to use those smaller scraps.  These pompoms are easy and fun for both kids and adults.  So go ahead and make pompoms galore and brighten up your day!

What will your pompoms look like?!  Please take a photo and share with us on facebook 🙂

What You’ll Need:

Fabric
Scissors
Cardboard/Paper (Cereal boxes work great!)

Make a pattern piece (Examples below) and cut out pattern.

Trace pattern onto fabric.

  • If using T-shirt material you will need 18-20 cutouts.
  • If using sweater or thicker material you will need 10-12 cutouts.

Cut out your cutouts – They do not need to be perfect.

Cut one 1″ wide by 12″ long strip per ornament – stretch it (pull ends) – save for later.

Fold cutout in half and cut two 1/4″ slits approximately 1/2″ apart at center.  Repeat this step for each cutout.

Fold piece in half to line the slits up with each other.  Feed the cutouts onto your strip one at a time.

Tightly center all of the cutout in the middle.

Tie the bundle together tightly over folds.  Tie once more to secure.

Viola! Pompom Ornament!

Tie a loop knot at the end of the strip.

Now it’s time to hang your new Pompom!  Where is your’s going?

 

We Are With You

By Inspiration 5 Comments

We understand the current events are a little unnerving and we’d like to reach out to the Elisabethan Community to let you know WE ARE WITH YOU.

Let’s take this time we have been given and fill it with productivity and goodwill rather than worry.  Below are some suggestions on productive ways to occupy your time while supporting small businesses and the community.

1. Praise

Help a small business you know and love and write them an online review.  Trust us – it helps!  Google, Facebook, TripAdvisor, Yelp – wherever you feel fit.

2. Sew

Do you love sewing just as much as us?!  Spend some quality time with your machine and sew some masks for our Health Care Workers. Here’s a link for a mask pattern that’s been recommenced to us.

3. Freshen Up

Touch up your wardrobe!  Everyone has that favorite button up missing a button or pair of pants with the oil stain – ugh!   Take this moment to give your clothes the TLC they deserve.  These little touch ups allow your clothes to look better and last longer.

4. Create

Find those scraps and make a fun DIY Pompom with our easy to follow instructions.  These pompoms are loved by cats and humans of all ages!

5. Organize

We all go a little wild sometimes in our crafts station.  Finally take the time to reorganize your crafting area and supplies.

6. Shop

If you’re really bored, treat yourself to a little online shopping.  Try to support the little guys during these times.  Amazon is overwhelmed with orders – find a little mom ‘n pop online store and begin your retail therapy.

7. Reach Out

Check in with your relatives and neighbors to see if there is anything you can help them with while respecting social distancing.  Sometimes a nice phone convo may be just what they needed.

8. Be Kind

Remember, everyone is experiencing this in their own way — please be kind.
