Note: The pom pom must be large enough to squeeze into the lid and give a nice puffy, thick surface. The 1″ size is too small. The one’s shown measured about 1 3/8″ which “might” be considered 1 1/2″ size. (I purchased mine  in a large bag of mixed sizes.) The  lids come in a variety of colors or you could also spray paint them if desired. The ones shown were kept as is.

    Great idea…and I just thought of this…for those who don’t want to wear it on your finger…glue a magnet on the bottom and pop it on your sewing machine…or make one of each!

    These are absolutely precious! While I do think that 3″ is a bit too long, the whole idea and the look of these little guys makes a person smile.
    Thanks for sharing!
