How to: Clover Pom Pom Makers

There is something about a woolly pom pom that takes us right back to our child hood and we are pleased to see a bit of a pom pom renaissance going on, with gorgeous pom pom related interior decorations popping up around the internet.

Jumping on the band wagon here is our super simple tutorial on making a pom pom garland using the fabulous Clover pom pom makers, thanks to Clover we no longer have to cut templates out the back of cereal boxes with their superb easy to use pom pom makers.
