Stuff you need for the led poi

Stuff you need
  • Two colour changing led lights - £1.50 each
    I found Zolo Colour Change LED Ball White at B&Q. They are soft enough not to hurt too much when you hit yourself and are really cheap.
  • Laundry bag - Less than £1 (I bought 3 for € 2)
    Also know as mesh washing machine bags, I made four pouches from a single 27x33cm (10.6"x13") bag.
  • Two pieces of webbing 28x2.5cm (11"x1") each - I used left over pieces (thanks mum!) buy for less than £0.50 per meter
    Dimensions are approximate, use wider or thinner webbing to your preference. I think you should be ok with anything over 25cm (10") long each
  • Two metal split rings diameter 2.5cm (1") - Free from my mums odds and sods jar. Buy for +/- 0.10 each
    Diameter depends on thickness off webbing used.
  • 3mm cord approximately 3 meters (10') in length - € 1.75 for 20 meters (65')
    Again you can use thinner or thicker stuff. Depending on how long you want your poi 3 meter should be long enough
  • Two drawstring stoppers - Mine came with the laundry bags
You also need some thread.

Total cost for a pair of poi are around £3 - £7 depending on what you already have lying around.
