How to Make Pom Poms With Yarn

2 Materials
1 Hour

Yarn pom poms are one of my very favorite easy craft projects.

They come together quickly, and the supplies are so inexpensive.

I started making them a couple of years ago, and my seven year old daughter has picked it up (she was making some just last night, in fact).

I used this pom pom maker and had great results (and it’s under $10 for the set). In this set, I received two pom pom makers, one is 2 1/2” and the larger one is 3 3/8″.

They’re the ideal size for embellishing baskets, gift wrap, scarves and more.

First, to make a pom pom, choose your size (I used the larger of the two pom pom makers).

Next, open up the arms of the pom pom maker.

Take your yarn and begin wrapping around your pom pom maker.

After fully wrapping one set of arms, close them and begin wrapping the other set.

Once your pom pom is fully wrapped, and your arms are both closed, here is what you will have.

Here’s what you have after you have cut all the way around and tied your string or yarn TIGHT around your pom pom pieces (see below DIY card for more tips).

This step is very important or your pom pom will fall apart.

Carefully take your pom pom maker apart, and you are left with a fluffy, full pom pom!

I truly love making these, and I hope you do, too.
