It's May, I say this every time a month passes by, but it doesn't mean any less. Is it just me or is time just moving wayy to fast?
Any who, putting the thought aside and springing forward, May brings us Mother's Day! Although we all know we should celebrate our mothers or a motherly figure of any kind each day. This 'holiday' of sorts pushes us for one day at least appreciate the woman that has more than often sacrificed a lot for us. Last year I showed you how to make Burlap & Felt Flowers- still a very popular DIY video of ours. If you'd like to see that tutorial the link is below:

This year I'll be showing you how to make lovely pompom flowers to either add to the above video or just a great alternative to fresh flowers. As I say anything handmade > purchasing something from the store. Plus these pompom flowers will last a lot longer.
This video tutorial will also teach you how to use Clover's PomPom Maker. If any of you own it, then you know what I mean when I say the picture instructions at the back don't help! By the end of this video you guys will be pompom making machines! Honestly this is by far the fastest way to making the circular fuzz that everyone loves to use in projects!
Okay, I'm talking aka typing too much. Please let me know if the video was helpful. And as always I would love to see what you all are working on for Mother's Day! It doesn't necessarily have to incorporate felt so do share them with me. Either in the comments below or any of our social media accounts.
