Pom-Pom “Pujaki” – ARTBAR

It’s time to update this pom-pom chandelier article from 9 a long time in the past, just one of the 1st that went “viral” on my blog in 2013. The cause I needed to update this article in unique right now is simply because this chandelier was impressed by regular Polish chandeliers termed Pujaki (produced from paper) and I definitely want to emphasize and honor the remarkable state of Poland and celebrate their men and women and their traditions. We are ending the second 7 days of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and Poland has now taken around a million displaced Ukranians in a present of compassion and solidarity. This is how we rise to assist some others in want. I would like we would do much more of this when the refugees are Brown or Black, but I am hopeful that Poland’s act of generosity will spark identical steps toward refugees of all hues in the foreseeable future.

In Poland, peasants used to make these Pujakis all through the wintertime months in preparing for their major getaway, Christmas! Although typically produced from paper and straw, mine was built from pom-poms mainly because I am obsessed with these fluffy very little men.

How to make a Pom-pom Pujaki

This project is relatively of a problem. I simply call it a labor of really like. It just requires a little time, and then a minor engineering. Not at all challenging, you just will need time and patience.

1. Make tons of pom-poms. I made 54 for this chandelier in a variety of measurements. I selected 6 distinct shades and white (or much more like cream) to act as a rest for the eye. I utilised pom-pom makers which make points definitely straightforward, but you can use whichever system you desire. The pom-pom maker kit will come with recommendations, but you get the strategy from the photographs.

2. Subsequent, lay out your pom-poms in the get that you like. I used 3 diverse dimensions. I also calculated and marked the hoop evenly with a pen so I would know precisely where to connect them.

3. So much, very uncomplicated. But now comes the tricky aspect. Setting up with the greatest pom-pom, force your needle meticulously by each one. When you get to the smallest, loop the needle as a result of the guide ring, and then back again down all of the pom-poms. Leave a very long tail at the stop, about a foot. You will use this to connect to the hoop. Make sure that every of the 6 strands is precisely the very same size. You can review each individual with the following as you go.

4. When all 6 strands are looped by way of the ring, dangle the ring up on the ceiling. Now it is time to connect the strands to the hoop. Re-thread the needle (now you will have two strings to thread). Wrap the string all-around the hoop and then safe it by likely back as a result of the pom-pom. Just after you experience that it’s limited enough, trim the string. Future, connect the strand reverse from the initial a single you just did. The hoop must now be protected. Go in advance and connect all of them. I used a minimal bit of fabric glue on the within just to double safe the string.

5. Now slash six items of string that are about 4 ft very long. Choose the middle of every single piece and loop it all-around the hoop at the location the place the 6 pom-poms meet the hoop. Make a few knots. Now there should be 6 double strings hanging down.

6. 1 by one, thread the two ends into the needle. All over again, press the needle very carefully through the four dangling pom-poms. When you’ve reached the very last 1, protected the thread by likely back again as a result of the bottom pom-pom. Trim the string.
