Craft Pom Poms & Pipe Cleaners

Did you know that we sell a massive range of craft pom poms and pipecleaners?

Acrylic pom poms and chenille pipecleaners have so many uses in the world of children's crafts and for adult craft projects too.

Our shop sorts these by colour, style, size and season for you, to make browsing and choosing easier.

As always, if you don't see what you are looking for, please let us know.

Which Glue?

We recommend using a tacky glue for pom poms and pipecleaners.

Normal PVA doesn't really dry fast enough when sticking these acrylic items together but a tacky version of this is perfect for the job. It will be very tacky from the outset and will have a very firm bond within 10/15 minutes.

This is the glue we recommend for our huge range of exclusive crafty bug making kits, as well as more general craft activities for both adults and kids.

It's our best seller, which must speak for itself!

St Georges Day Crafts - It's All Red & White!

St. George's Day - 23 April 2010

Whilst we're all still surrounded by Easter bunnies and remembering the relevance of Easter, St Georges Day is just around the corner.

St. George, who is the patron saint of England, had as his emblem the red cross on a white background. It is this emblem that was adopted by Richard the Lion Heart, which was brought to England in the 12th century. The king's soldiers then wore it on their tunics in battle to avoid confusion.

The St George's cross is now the English flag and also forms part of the Union flag.

Now we use the St George's emblem, which signifies St George's Day, as the basis of the majority of children's craft activities and adult patriotic English craft projects.

St George is also the patron saint of other countries, as well as being the patron saint of many groups including scouts and soldiers.

St George's Day is a time when the attention of many kids groups in England turn their attention to themed crafts.

We offer a great range of kits, many unique to us. To view these, please CLICK HERE.
