Tie Dye T-shirt Pom Pom Balls

Pom Poms are such a classic craft that never get old!  We've been seeing lots of fun yarn pom poms and soft t-shirt pom poms, so we wanted to try our hand at tie dye pom poms using shirts created with Tulip One-Step Tie-Dye!  We created these pretty pom poms for a special baby diaper cake tutorial we plan on sharing with you next week!  These made the perfect little adornment!

What you need:– Tie dye shirts created with the 5-pack Tulip One-Step Tie-Dye kit in Neon
– 24 gauge wire
– Scissors
– Wire cutters

Cut long strips from the bottom of the shirt.  It will end up being in a loop, so you will want to cut the loop.

Using the pom pom tool, start wrapping the strips around pulling them as you go. This w ill make for a longer strip (one time when it's ok to pull your t-shirt).

When you finish with one strip, add another, then another, and another.  You want to make one big bulky wrap around the pom pom maker.

Use wire cutters to cut off a 5 inch piece of wire and wrap around the center tightly.

Cut the sides and let it fringe out until the pom pom is not attached to the pom pom maker.
 Fringe out your pom pom even more, use the scissors to trim the pom pom. Now cut off the excess wire.
And there you go!  Look how pretty these little pom poms turned out!

We can't wait to show you the finished cake in all it's glory.  It's tie-dyerrific!
