DIY: Pom Pom Nursery Letter

Lindsey Crafter shows us how to add a personal touch to your nursery in just 4 steps.

There’s nursery personalization and then there’s nursery personalization. Sure, anyone can throw a letter up above the crib and say it’s for baby, but when you make it yourself, well, that’s a serious personal touch.

This week we’re introducing our new friend Lindsey Crafter, a jack of all DIY trades who will be treating Well Rounded NY readers to baby and maternity friendly crafting projects in the months to come. As her first task, Lindsey’s going to help you go above and beyond personalizing baby’s nursery with DIY Pom Pom letters. Here’s how it’s done.

Supplies for DIY

Supplies Needed:
Color Coordinated Yarn
Chitboard or Wood Letter
Clover Pom Pom Maker
Hot glue Gun
Ribbon
Scissors

Making pom poms

1. Use a pom pom maker (I used Clover) to make pom poms in a variety of sizes and thread colors. There are multiple ways of making pom poms using your hands or cardboard–but in a case where quantity is the objective I recommend using this clever tool.

2. After following the instructions for making your pom, trim the shaggy threads to create a uniform length. Experiment with different thicknesses of yarn to create different sizes and textures of pom poms.

3. After arranging their placement on the cardboard letter, simply hot glue into place.

4. Prop up on a dresser or add a ribbon to the back of your letter to hang on the wall.
