Pompoms and Easter may sound like a weird combination but as I’ve mentioned before, I think the good part of a celebration often consists of the anticipation, and that common crafts are a good way to build up the excitement.
At first I thought I’d knit Easter eggs to decorate willow branches with. But my children are too small to knit.
Then my brother’s wife popped in, and she brought these:
They are genius for making pompoms! My daughter has made plenty with these, but I doubt she’d yet be able to make them the old way, using a needle and getting the yarn though a hole in the middle of a cardboard circle. And won’t these pompoms make our Easter willow branches look cheerful and colourful?!
