DIY Pom Poms

Pom Poms are a great way to transform a simple hat design. I mean take this hat…

Add a pom pom…And you have a great color pop addition!Way back when I learned to make pom poms using two pieces of circular cardboard . I find this method is one of the best ways to get a fluffy and symmetrical pom pom. With this method, I rarely have to do much trimming of the finished product. Plus I can create different size discs to make small, medium, or large pom poms.

Pom poms became quite trendy this year and the Internet is afloat with several ways in which to DIY your own.

This method with using your fingers is a quick way to make a pom pom. All the tools you need are yarn and scissors. The one con is that most likely you will have to do more trimming in the end to shape up the pom pom than with the discs.

Here is another method using a fork. The fork it limiting in a sense that the Pom pond can only be so big. I have to say this was my least favorite method. It was a little tough to get a secure tie-off before cutting all of the loops.

Most likely I will stick with my cardboard disc method, but it always good to have several methods in your arsenal.

Until Next Time
