Crafty Kids | Monster Rings
Has the pom pom crafting bug bit you yet? Once you start making them you really get hooked! They are easy, quick, and oh so cute. In my pursuit for an excuse to make more, I created this fun little craft. Pom poms make excellent monsters and with a little ingenuity these little pom pom monsters double as rings. They make the perfect DIY kiddo accessory. And they would make really cute present toppers too!
Ready to make your own?
Small rubber bands (these are meant for hair)
Gently wrap yarn around two fingers until you have a nice thick bundle.
Slide the yarn off and tie another length of yarn tightly around the middle. Using the same piece of yarn tie a rubber band to the pom pom.
Cut the yarn at the fold on either side of the center tie.
Being careful not to cut the rubber band, trim the yarn until it is a fairly tight and even ball.
Glue on eyes. Optional: you can glue on yarn to create a mouth.
Step out in style.
I hope you have as much fun as my son and I had making these. Happy Crafting!
