I have a pom pom tutorial here that shows how to make pom poms using just your fingers. This is how I learned as a kid and I still make them this way so you may want to give it a try :)
I can't finish this series of posts without recommending the book Owl Babies - so cute and one of my all time favorite children's books These pom pom owls would be the perfect craft go-along or make one (or several) and package it with this book for a lovely gift!
Yes, it is owl day here at The Crafty Crow! Have fun!
