Xmas sprout (pom pom tree decoration)

Since getting my pom pom maker I’ve hunted down mercilessly on Pinterest happened upon loads of cool stuff people have done with them. This one caught my eye since it’s very cute and Christmas is approaching fast. It’s a sprout in a cracker hat to hang on the tree. It looked pretty simple so I dove in:

I used felt for the hat and a gold pen to add the dots. googly eyes and just a bog standard green pom pom. I was slightly concerned about how to attach things to a pom pom – it’s all a bit ethereal and constantly on the move. So I brought out the big guns straight away in the form of a glue gun and it was actually fine – a couple of blobs on the inside of the hat stuck to a few threads and it all seems very secure. I left the pom pom thread used to tie it together at the top in the middle of the hat and just tied it into a loop to use to hang on the tree.
