Pom Pom

How To Make A Pom Pom

My latest obsession..Pom Pom's!!
They are so cute, fun and easy to make :)

There are several different ways you can make a Pom Pom with supplies from home, and today I'm going to show you the way I make it

First cut out a piece of thick sturdy cardboard into the size you want your Pom Pom to be..
this piece of cardboard is approx 3 inches (vertically)
Also cut out a hole in the center of the cardboard...mine should be a little wider..more rectangular than square if you will

Next get your yarn and hold it against the cardboard and start winding around.

I wound mine around the cardboard 75 times. 
The more you wind the thicker your Pom Pom :)

Now cut a piece of yarn about 8 inches or so long.
Lay it over one side of the wrapped yarn, and then pull it through the hole to the other side....

So that the other side looks like you can tie it really tight into a knot around the middle.
Make sure it's super tight and you knot it a few times.  
For extra security, after tying the knot, put the string back through the hole and tie a knot on the other side as well.

Cut along the top edge of the wrapped yarn on both the top and the bottom

And now you should have this!
Pull the Pom Pom through the hole and you are finished :)

Now you can trim your Pom Pom and do with it as you please!
Isn't it cute!

Some ideas for the Pom Pom's:
Hot glue to the top of a pen
Make a Pom Pom Garland by tying them together
Use them as Ornaments
Put them on presents as bows
Tie them to your shoe laces
The list goes on and on and on and on...options are never ending with this one.

Have fun with it and have your kids join in the fun :)
Happy Crafting!
