Hi friends! Today I am excited to share with you this fun DIY for making pom poms. I would highly recommend buying these inexpensive pom pom makers. They are very easy to use and the pom poms come out almost perfect every time. There is very little waste when making them as well.
Supplies Needed: A variety of yarn in colors and thicknesses. Pom Pom makers, I got mine here. Small scissors and a ruler (optional).
This project is super simple and easy to make. They look so cute and can be used in so many different crafts. While making one does not take long it does become time consuming when you need to make a large amount.
Your pom pom makers should have come with instructions so they may be slightly different than mine. First open both sides of the pom pom maker and start wrapping one side with yarn. Make sure to push the yarn loops together to keep them tight.
Once one side is completely wrapped with yarn then cut the end to separate it from the ball of yarn.
Next your going to wrap the other side of the pom pom maker and cut the end. Make sure to push both sides back in to prevent the yarn from coming off. Next cut about a 12 inch long piece of yarn and set it aside. Once that is complete, you are going to cut all the loops of yarn along the side of the pom pom maker.
Once you have cute the yarn all the way around, take your piece of yarn that you set aside and put it into the crease of the pom pom maker and tie a knot.
Now open your pom pom maker and pull apart the two sides to remove the pom pom.
Once you have your pom pom out of the maker then tie another knot in your string to keep all the pieces secure. Lastly trim the pom pom and the long string to make it look as desired.
There you have it an easy and quick way to make pom poms. With them easily customizable I will definitely be showing you ways to incorporate these into your crafts.
