Aren’t these mini pom poms just the cutest little things?! We recently made a handful of them for a little project I have going on… and decided to make a few extra because the little ones just wanted to keep swiping these sweet and fluffy little balls of yarn to play with . The kids each crafted a couple of their own, that’s how easy they are to make, and so here’s another way you can use one of your kitchen utensils for something besides eating.
Materials Needed //
Step Two // Begin wrapping the yarn around the tines of your fork. The more you wrap, the fuller and fluffier your little poms will be. For the kids, since it took them a few tries to get the hang of it, they were ready to stop after about 3o wraps. I’d recommend 60 for a nice full pom pom.
Step Four // Tie off your pom pom, but don’t finish the knot yet. Slide the wrap off the fork and then pull the string tight and tie in a knot. Then you can cut the yarn that’s still attached to the ball of yarn.
Step Five // Now that you’ve got a tight knot around the middle and you’ve detached your pom pom from the ball of yarn , use your scissors and cut between all the loops of yarn and fan that pom pom out.
These are perfect for hot gluing on to just about any of your little girls things… hair clips, hats, belts, etc. These would be SO cute attached to a string as a garland (Hello, Valentine’s Day!) or as ornaments for Christmas time… or a Valentine’s tree.
I’ll show you how I used mine very soon, besides the impromptu pom pom fight (think snowball fight without the cold).
What about you? What would you use something like this for?
