How did you go with your tree blocks? Well this weekend’s project was a little bit of a happy accident. We’re making little green bushes for small world imaginative play.
I had an idea to make some lovely soft bushes to compliment the rough texture of the tree blocks. I thought pompoms would work well; I’ve never made pompoms before, they do take a while don’t they? I was fairly happy with the result but since it didn’t look much like a pompom I tried a simpler and easier method, and they turned out great.
It’s all in the wool. Soft, fluffy, textured wool that you can imagine resembling a bush when your finish.
Then all you do is:
- wind the wool around two fingers so you have a circle of wool
- tie the wool together in two different places
- now squish it all together into the shape of a bush
Have a go this weekend.
