DIY Watermelon Pom-Poms by Miranda + #1 Guest Post!

   Hello everybody!
   So ... guess what? Heck yeah! Finally, this blog has its first guest post! It's from Miranda - you know that awesome The Reindeer Files blog? Yes, it's hers!
   Because she's awesome, why don't you just take a seat and enjoy her post?

   Hi, I’m Miranda and I blog over at The Reindeer Files, Hana has kindly allowed me to guest post on her blog so I thought I’d share a little DIY with you all.



   You will need:

   ~ wool (red, green and black)
   ~ a pom-pom maker or a substitute 
   ~ scissors 

   I used a pom-pom maker for this tutorial but you can use anything of a similar shape. 

   First take the red wool and wrap is around the pom-pom maker

  

Then take the black wool and wrap it around twice in one or two places.


   Repeat steps 1&2 unit your ball of wool is quite round. Take the green wool and wrap it around the maker bellow the red until it is equally as thick.



   Put another piece of wool through the gap at the base of the pom-pom maker and tie it loosely at the top. Carefully slip the wool off the pom-pom maker and tie the wool more tightly.


Cut all the looped threads.


Then trim the pom-pom to your desired shape. I like making balls but you could shape it like a wedge. You can choose to keep the long piece of wool in order to attach the pom-pom to something later.


   Finished!

   I think I’m going to make a long watermelon pom-pom garland.

   So, yeah, that's it! Creative, right?

   And, if you are wondering what's happening on me - well, the National Exam is just some months away, and there are many tests at my school. I got bad grades for math, and, yeah, I think I should study harder. Keeping a blog active is a bit hard for me right now, so, maybe I will post 1 or 2 guest posts a month ... 

   If you want to write a guest post here, feel free to contact me!

By the way, have you try this tutorial?

P.S: You can send me a guest post about tips & DIYs!
