Button crafts – Giant pom pom clouds

Pom pom clouds and button raindrops – we made these to hang from my son’s bedroom ceiling… coughs… they look nicer hanging against my bedroom wall though don’t you think?!

The giant pom poms are really straightforward to make, easier with tissue paper if I’m honest (we used crepe paper for these giant pom poms as we’d run out of white tissue paper) however, aesthetically they look great in the textured crepe paper.

The button raindrops are really effective, choose a variety of shades of blue, and string and knot them onto some blue yarn to hang from the giant paper pom pom clouds – lovely!

  2. Fantastic Ali – I love it just discovered how to make the pompoms and now know what I am going to do with the white ones… off to get T to sort out all our blue buttons

    I have a tutorial on my site on the pom poms as was so surprised how easy they were to make I had to share.

    • thank you Cerys, that’s great to hear! I am making a tonne of them for my friend’s wedding venue as a pressie!
