Yarn pom-poms. Where have you been all my life? I had no idea they could add so much pizazz to my style game. These little balls of fluff just scream whimsy and adorableness. They make spiffy bookmarks. They look jaunty sewed to the top of a knit cap. Use them in gift wrapping instead of a bow. Add them to pillows and lampshades. Give one to your cat for hours of playtime. And by all means, hang a couple from your rearview mirror.

And the best part is yarn pom-poms are so fun and easy to make. In fact, get some friends together and have a pom-pom party. And be sure to bring snacks. Like I always say, there’s no “creating” without “eating.”

What you’ll need:
Yarn
Scissors

 

1. Hold out your four fingers so they are lined up straight.  With your other hand, wrap yarn around the four fingers about 100 times.

 

2. Slide the coil of yarn off your fingers. Cut a 24-inch piece of yarn and tie it around the middle of the yarn coil. Double knot it to keep the yarn secure.

 

3. Cut through all the loops with scissors.

 

4. Use scissors to trim around the yarn to create a ball shape. Be careful not to cut off the long piece of yarn that is holding together all the strands.
