10 minute dollar store tutorial for pom pom planner clip, scrap buster, simple project

10-Minute Pom Pom Planner Clip

I’m testing the waters with something new to the blog: Dollar Store Crafts. All of them will still be yarn-related. They will require yarn or crochet skills to finish. But they will feature upcycled, decorated, or repurposed items I find at the dollar store or thrift store.

I LOVE my local Dollar Tree. I spend a lot of time wandering around in there, looking for cool items I can use for crafts or ways to get creative and/or organized.

This week, I picked up these GIANT paper clips in the stationary section. They were marketed as “bookmarks.” They had these ugly poms on them already, so I decided that I could do better and go bigger. These are the perfect scrap busting pom pom planner clips!

Everyone knows I love planner clips. 🙂

And what could be greater than a stash busting project

Pom-Pom Planner Clip Tutorial

If you don’t have a pom pom maker, here is a tutorial on how to make one out of cardboard. Or you can purchase one on Amazon here. I use the Susan Bates simple Pom-Pom makers, but there are lots on the market that are fancier.

Wrap scraps around the two sides of your Pom-Pom maker.

Click the two sides of the pom-pom maker together to form a circle. Around the edge, between the two halves of the pom-pom maker, use scissors to cut yarn.

With all the yarn cut, string a long scrap of yarn between the sides of the pom-pom maker along the place you just cut. Tie and pull TIGHT. Gently unclip the sides and pull each piece of the pom-pom maker out of the yarn.

Trim around the whole pom until it is round and relatively even.

Pull open the outside end of the paper clip and push it through the center of the pom pom. Be sure it goes through the knot you tied to create the pom.

Push pom onto clip around to the short side.

Ta-da! Easy, fast, and fun, right? What a great way to add a splash of color to my planner! And it goes great with my gel pens!
