Pom Poms

Pom poms aren't the most expensive thing to buy, but if you find yourself needing one and you don't have any on hand, make one. They are super easy to make, you can make them any size you want, and it will only take you a few minutes to do. All you need are yarn, scissors and a pair of hands.

Start out by wrapping the yarn around your fingers. The more fingers you wrap it around the bigger your pom pom will be. You could also wrap it around a piece of cardboard or any other object that you could easily slip it off of. I wrapped it around about 35 times but if you want a fluffier pom pom then keep on wrapping.

Once you finish wrapping it, slide it off your hand, making sure to keep it in an oval shape.

Then take a second piece of yarn and tie it tightly around the center.

Then you will take your scissors and cut the loops on each side, this will give it it's fluffy appearance.

Once all your loops are cut, fluff your pom pom out and your done. If you are a bit of a perfectionist you can also give your pom pom a little hair cut to make it a bit more symmetrical before you use it on your projects.

Happy creating!
