How to Make Yarn Pom-Poms?

I mentioned in an earlier post that you can use several things to decorate a gift, such as fabric bows, twigs, tulle or even yarn pom-poms. I think it's time I showed you how to make your own yarn pom-poms.

You need:
- yarn
- a pair of scissors
- a bag for leftovers

Step 1
Take one strand and wrap it gently around four fingers, without making it too tight (you will still need to take your hand out). You can also combine strands of different colours and textures.

Step 2
When your wrapping gets about 3 cm thick, cut the strand and then cut another one about 20 cm long

Step 3
Take the wrap gently off your hand and use the 20 cm long strand to tie around it, right int the middle. Make sure you tie the knot very firmly.

Step 4
Use the scissors to cut through the wraped strands. Then adjust the shape of your pom-pom, make it look like a sphere. You will have a lot of leftovers and this is where the disposal bag comes in very handy. Just shape your pom-pom over the bag and you will have no problem with garbage once you finish making your yarn pom-pom.

Step 5
When you finish shaping your pom-pom, use your fingers to ruffle it up, just to make it look full and equal.

And there you have it! 

Congratulations! You have made your first yarn pom-pom! Now make the best of it and start decorating! Use it for table arrangements, gift wrappings or Christmas tree decorations

Merry Christmas!
