Crafting Corner Review: Pom Pom Monster Salon - April Chorba

Crafting Corner is a monthly feature will appear on the blog on the first Saturday of the month and I hope that some of you will join in with me. Crafting Corner is somewhere for us to chat about anything craft related - it can be sewing, painting, drawing, model making, in fact pretty much anything goes. You may want to review crafting books or just talk about any current projects you're working on or things that you'd like to start. I don't really have a set format for these posts so I'm just going to roll with it and see what happens but hopefully some of you will find it interesting and be willing to share what you're working on too. It doesn't matter what day of the month you join in but if you do take part please come leave a link to your post in the comments so that I can check out what you've been creating!


I don't seem to have spent much time crafting in July but I have had a lot of fun playing with my birthday present from Kirsty (from The Overflowing Library) and making pom pom monsters! I'm such a big kid & Kirsty knows me well so this kit was the perfect present :o)

An old favourite gets an innovative makeover: now kids can create, cut and style their own pom-pom monsters. The Klutz-created pom-pom maker with integrated numbering system provides customized hairlines and facial features. Pom-poms emerge that can carry off a mop top, an afro, pigtail, mohawk and just about any other hairstyle in a variety of colours. Also includes fun accessories including foam teeth.

  • Exclusive Klutz wrap and snap pom-pom maker
  • 85 yards of acrylic yarn
  • Styling comb
  • Itty-bitty bows
  • Silly teeth and eyes
  • Punch-out accessories
  • and much more
Over the years I've owned many of the Klutz craft books and as a big kid at heart I still love them now. The great thing about these kits is that they always include everything you need to get started. You can be completely new to making pom poms before opening this book and you'll still be able to make a brilliant selection of monsters by following the simple instructions and using the materials provided (the only additional thing you'll need is a pair of scissors). This kit includes 5 different colours of yarn, a pom-pom maker (we used to use cardboard when I was a child rather than this snazzy plastic device!) and all kinds of embellishments to stick on to the monsters to add things like eyes, teeth, horns, wings, shoes, sunglasses etc.

Pom-Pom Monster Salon is packed full of ideas to help you get started but you're only limited by your own imagination and the possibilities are endless. Who doesn't want to be able to make adorable little monsters with pigtails or a mohawk?

Aren't they cute?
