What you'll need:
A ton of mini pompoms (fingertip size) if you happen upon this brand I used 6 packs because I mixed the colours up, if you're just using one colour range then 5 should suffice for a 9 inch letter
3D Letter (mine was from Walmart)
Hot Glue Gun
Picture Hanging attachment
and lastly Asbestos fingers
Before you do anything, make sure you attach your picture hanging gizmo's. I waited until I'd finished, then I had to rest the letter on a towel when hammering so as not to flatten the pompoms, it worked, but doing it first is way easier.
Mix up the pompoms, I used two colours and wanted them to be randomly assorted so I jumbled them about on my table.
Glue gun the letter, grab some pompoms and squish them down, working in a round pattern or in diagonal strips should give a random look to their placement.
Then start on the side, making sure the edge closest to the top has no gaps. I found gripping the letter between my knees made this edge easier to handle.
After you've finished the side, start on the inner edges, hot glue gun then stick pompoms down one or two at a time making sure the edge nearest the top has no gaps, the edge nearest the wall won't show so much so smal gaps there are fine.
When you get to any sharp corners squish the pompoms into the corner first then add others afterwards.
Then curse when you run out of pompoms with 2 inches left to go, finish up, then hang up on your wall and admire, doesn't it look like it's made of sweets/Candy? Yum!
and just for fun I rearranged my pompom stash into rainbow (ish) order, like a jar full of sunshine isn't it?
