GIVEAWAY: Pom-Poms!

Quirk Books has been publishing unique reads since 2002 with a line-up includes books in the following categories - crafts, fiction, food & drink, games & sports, home & garden, humor, pets, pop culture, and more. I have previously reviewed the awesome book Craft-a-day by Sarah Goldschadt featuring 365 simple handmade projects. Now I am thrilled to have the opportunity to review & give away two copies of Pom-Poms! by Sarah Goldschadt & Lexi Walters Wright featuring 25 awesomely fluffy projects!!!

I love the aesthetics of this book. It is so colorful & the size is very manageable (7.5"x8"). Many of us remember making pom-poms as a kid for various craft projects. Pom-Poms! provides a modern take on a simple craft that can make a bold statement. While the book does instruct the reader on how to create pom-poms with several different techniques, the meat of the book is composed of projects in which you can use pom-poms. The first section features projects that are for the home with the first project showing how to make a flower bouquet.

The additional sections feature projects you can wear, as well as projects perfect for parties followed by pom-pom 101, materials, wrappable methods, wrapping & trimming styles, and more. One of my favorite aspects of this book is that it shows how to make pom-poms out of various materials, including yarn, coffee filters, tulle, fabric, felt, tinsel, cupcake liners, twine, and more. Obviously, the sky is the limit when it comes to creating fabulously funky pom-poms!!! Joe and I had tons of fun creating a pom-pom garland to go with our Christmas decor (pictured).

On the Quirk Books website, you will find exclusive content showing how to create a glitter pom-pom ornament using cupcake liners. The site also features affordable apps for the Craft-A-Day project (summer, spring, fall AND winter editions), and more! Odds are they also offer a book that's perfect for someone on your holiday shopping list. And the Pom-Poms! book is super affordable at just $14.95. It truly is a go-to resource for crafters, DIY fashionistas, party planners, parents and kids, and anyone who finds delight in these cool, colorful, and insanely cute balls of fluff.

This book is PERFECT for me. My husband jokes that craspedia or billy balls are "my flowers" - We can't keep them in the house because the cats will try to eat them. Now I could learn how to make them!

I've loved making Pom Poms for years. My 10 yr old granddaughter just knitted a cap on a loom and when she finished she wanted a pom pom on top ... so once again pom poms come into my life. Need to know what else I can do with them!
