Hello there lovely Buttoneers! I can’t believe it is December tomorrow – Where has this year gone!? I blooming love this time of year because of sooooo many things but Etsy shop wise – It’s all about the sprouts! Who knew that this little idea in my creative imagination would turn out to be my best seller at this time of year!? I even sold a garland in March – now that is what I call organised! I have been rushed off my crafty little feet getting sprouts made and out the door this year – I have limited stock at the moment so if you were planning on decking the halls with fluffy sprouts this year keep this in mind. Lots of pom pom making in my future I think!
Last year the Pom Pom Sprouts made their debut as part of my Create 30 Blog challenge as a Christmas Sprout Pom Pom Garland and then later by request, as individual Christmas Sprout Pom Pom Decorations. That then led to selling them as a Pack of Four – One of each of the four different party hat combinations.
All year I have thought up new ideas for these little sprouty fluffles but most ideas got lost in a sea of other makes and busy schedules and they all got put to one side. A few months ago, during a stock take of handmade treasures, I came across the Christmas sprouts but with my headaches and migraines (and the short hospital stay) this autumn, they all got a bit delayed until recently and the ideas bloomed once more. Hooray!
I have been squirrelling away behind the scenes like a Christmas elf tweaking away, measuring little pom pom sprouts for glittery party hats and filling them with Christmas magic to get them out on time for the festive season!
So, without further ado…Here are my new Christmas Sprout Pom Pom Brooches…I hope you love them as much Rudolph loves Carrots! (That’s a lot!)
These little sprout pom poms are lovingly handmade with light and dark acrylic yarn, adorable little googly wiggly eyes are added to give them their own little personalities, along with little red party hats atop their fluffy heads so that they are raring to go for any festive party or celebration you desire. They can’t wait!
The Christmas Sprout Pom Pom Brooches are all ready to party in their little red glitter party hats and are super excited to be pinned on to your Christmas jumper, your sparkly top or even to sit subtly on your beautifully curated elegant outfit.
They all have been taught to be on their best behaviour – especially at the work’s Christmas party!
Shhh…I’ll let you into a little secret…they even sleep in their party hats just in case you need them right away for a festive emergency or a moment when a little sprout full of festive cheer can brighten your day – you never know what might come up over the festive period do you!?
Each little pom pom is approx. 1 1/4″ in diameter which is about 3cm not including his party hat. Maybe you would choose your favourite and wear it on your Christmas jumper or on your favourite shirt? Maybe you would buy one of each! Imagine the fun they would have then!
These little friendly faces are sure to bring festive cheer to your outfits and become a staple Christmas accessory that will make you smile every year you bring them out to boogie again!
I am so proud of these little fluffy bundles of Christmas sprout goodness and will definitely be wearing my little friend over the festive season. What would you pin this little sprout to? Do you have a Christmas jumper to wear this year?
A little Christmas Sprout Pom Pom Brooch would be the cherry on the top, the icing on the cake, the fairy on top of the tree…the sprout upon your jumper!
These little guys are now available to buy from the Eliston Button Etsy Shop and are very limited in stock at the moment so don’t delay! Don’t forget you can find the Christmas Sprout Pom Pom Garlands, Individual Sprout Decorations and Pack of Four Sprout Decorations over there too amongst a treasure trove of handmade goodness for all of your seasonal gifting needs!
Also, perfect for this time of year, every single item you purchase from the Eliston Button Etsy Shop is carefully wrapped in tissue paper and tied with a ribboned bow before being carefully placed into protective packaging before they get posted out to you!
