How to Make a Pom Pom

Items You'll Need

  • Yarn

  • Scissors

  • Straight Ruler, Cardboard, or something to wrap the yarn around

Pom Pom Assembly

    Sure there are devices out there that are meant to make a pom pom. However, for small ones, I simply use a straight ruler. For larger ones, you can use a piece of cardboard or a small box - anything that is rigid and fairly flat will work.

    Cut a piece of yarn about 12" long and lay it across the length of the ruler. If you're using fingering weight or otherwise very thin yarn, cut 2 pieces for extra reinforcement. Now wrap your yarn around the width of the ruler (not the length) until it is about 1/4" thick with yarn. Take the 12" long yarn piece and tie it, closing it around the wrapped yarn.

    Try to tie it as tight as possible without breaking the yarn you're tying with. Now you can cut the wrapped yarn along the halfway mark, opposite of where you tied it together. Even out the edges on the pom pom with your scissors until it is the desired shape.
