Pom Pom Part Series Part 2 - DIY Pom Poms!

Jan 28, 2012

Today I am happy to present the second part of the Pom Pom Party series!
Today I have a tutorial on how to make your own pom poms!!!

Now these are super simple to make! All they take are...
 Some yarn (the more yarn, the fluffier pom pom!)
A big rubber band

 Start by wrapping yarn around some fingers. The more fingers you use, the larger the pom pom.
 Wrap loosely enough so you would be able to pull the yarn off your fingers.
 When you have about this much (the exact amount doesn't really matter), cut it off. Now, carefully pull ALL the yarn off your fingers, keeping it in it's 'circle' shape.

Now pinch it right in the middle, so that it kind of looks like a bow. Make sure you pinch it so there are loops on either side like this:

 Now take your rubber band, stretch it around where your fingers just were (with the loops on either side) and tie the band as tight as you can!

 Now cut through all the loops on each side!

 Above is 'Before'. Now you must fluff it up and re-adjust the pom pom! Also, trim your pom pom so all sides are relatively even.

 The finished product!
