With one week to go until The Handmade Fair in Hampton Court, London we couldn't resist getting in on the action and talking about one of our favourite subjects, pompoms!
Headed up by Kirstie Allsopp, The Handmade Fair team are aiming to break the Guinness World Record for the longest line of pompoms and raise money for the charity Sense to help support adults and children who are deafblind.
We have long been pinners of pompoms on our Pinterest board and love how versatile and easy to make they are. Have you got a pompom board? Share it with us and we will follow back.
At The Makery pompoms are an essential crafty staple crafty. We sell the regular size pompom makers as well as the mega large. The big one is so popular and would make a perfect super sized bobble hat like this gorgeous one by YesJess on Etsy.
Oh and check out this pompom love-in on style blog HonestlyWTF celebrating the Pom Pom factory who make their pompoms from 100% bio-degradable and recycled tissue paper. They create them for weddings, store windows, fashion shoots and parties but can also make installations. How stunning is the umbrella design!
