Given the one-woman campaign of genocide I wage on them in the garden I seem to have quite a soft spot for dandelions as a decorative motif. I saw this tutorial for "pomdelions" at Flamingo Toes, and decided I needed some in my life.
Plus I'd just bought a rinky-dinky gadget called a Multipom, which allows you to make multiple pom poms at the same time.
I repeat. Make multiple pom poms. At. The. Same. Time.
So, I knocked out a bunch of pom poms in less time than it takes to say "are you finished with that cereal box yet I want to cut it into circles?".
I left them a bit shaggy instead of tidying them up as per the multipom directions because I thought that was more dandelion-y, and pretty much followed the tutorial, except that I made my calyces from felt not crepe paper, and I hooked the florists wires through and secured with green tape rather than hot gluing them.
Here they are on my hall table. (Next to a less than awesome watercolour of Naomi)
Too much fun for words. Anything in this house that stands still for long enough will soon find itself decorated with pom poms...
