Make it ! Cheer up with pom pom cherries !!!

A very simple and easy craft!!!

You just need :

  • some yarn ( I choose some red and green)
  • a pom pom maker (or use any method you prefer most)
  • a pair of scissors
  • a hook 
  • a tapestry needle
  • a pin
With the pom pom maker make 2 pompoms and trim them

Collect the hook and the green yarn and crochet a chain...

....I did two!!! One with 50 chains, the other with 60...

After making a bow with both of them (the loops resemble the leaves of the cherries!), I decided to use the bow made with 60 stitches...
At this point, grab the tapestry needle and one pom pom, so that you can insert one of the pom pom tails in the eye of the needle...

....and make it pass through the first chain of the green bow...

pull the red yarn until the green strip touches the knot made to fix the pom pom when done with the pom pom maker..

...and make a double knot with the red tails!!! Cut the excess of yarn from all the tails...

Now do the same with the other pom pom and ...

...your cherries are done !!!!! .....

I decided to add a pin on the back...

....I have a new brooch in my collection....

  6. With those pompoms it even looks better.

    I'm going to start it one of thes days, together with you plaid.
