I have long had a fascination with pom poms.
I remember making them for my tennis shoes when I was younger and to wear in my hair. Recently I have been using them for packaging and crafts...and they are pure cuteness.
I especially am loving these miniature ones right now.
I have a couple of projects coming up that use these miniature pom poms (about 1" in diameter) so I thought I would share a quick tutorial!
- Yarn or Bakers Twine - 2 yards +/-
Make a Pom Pom
These pom poms are miniature, maybe 1" to 1 1/4" in diameter.
- Cut one length of twine about 8" long.
- In the center slot of the fork, slide the length of twine that you just cut in.
- Hold the end of the (larger) twine against the fork and wrap the twine around the fork.
- I wrapped this about 25 times - you will have to experiment depending on how full you want the pom pom and the thickness of your twine.
- Once finished wrapping, take the 8" length, pull it up on either side of the pom pom and tie it off tightly - very tightly (staying in the center slot).
- Slip it off the fork.
- Pull the shorter string and KNOT it around the pom pom.
- Cut through the sides.
- Fluff, twist, and trim if necessary!
Now, you have PURE cuteness!
