Love the look of those adorable teeny tiny pom poms? Learn how to make tiny pom poms in about a minute, using just a fork and yarn!

These small pom poms are just killing me! Oh, the cuteness! There are so many ways you could put these babies to a great use, from making pom pom tassels, mini snowmen as decor at Christmas to a pom pom garland or a wreath. The possibilities are endless! And they’re so easy peasy!
A couple of tips before starting making these cuties: use small, sharp scissors and use thick thread or even yarn to tie your pom poms (and make sure you tie them real tight or they’ll break very soon)

How to make it:
  • Grab the fork with one hand, as close to the teeth as possible. 
  • Leave one end of the yarn a little longer and try and hold it still with your finger. Then start wrapping the yarn around the fork, a few good time. The more yarn you use, the thicker the pom pom.
  • When done wrapping, leave the end a little longer then cut.
  • While still holding the fork and the yarn with one hand, grab a piece of yarn or thick thread and thread it through the fork, right in the middle. Tie super tight then remove the pom pom from the fork. Your pom pom will look more like a bow now.
  • Cut through the edges of the bow and then start fluffing up the pom pom.
  • Trim as needed to get a round, thick, even pom pom.
