I love pom-poms don't you?! They are just so fun... and so popular right now! You can find them on curtains, pillows, blankets and lots more!
But sometimes you need BIG pom-poms... and you need them in a special color... and maybe you need to be able to easily attach them to other items!
Today I want to demonstrate how easy it is to make your own pom-poms! I have not been compensated by Clover but I love my pom-pom makers 😍
I made some for my Peace, Love, and DIY wooden peace sign using my Large Clover Pom Pom Maker and I promised to show how easy they are to make!
So, let me show you!
When you remove the pom-pom maker from the package it will look like this.
Open it up like so...
Hold the end of your yard at the end of one of the open sides and begin wrapping.
As you wrap, catch the end under the wrapped pieces to hold it securely. Continue wrapping... the more layers of wrapping you do the fuller your pom-pom will be. I wrapped until I had about three layers.
Now you can just reach your length of yarn over and start wrapping the same way on the other extended, open piece of the pom-pom maker.
Wrap this side the same number of times you did the other.
Once you are done wrapping, close up both sides.
Now you will cut down the center of each side. There is a little groove in the plastic that your scissors will slide along to help you get a straight cut.
It will look like this, flip it over and cut the other side. but don't open it!!
Slide a long piece of yard around the pom-pom maker through the groove that you cut along and tie it as tight as you can.
Now open the pom-pom maker.
and pull the two sides apart to reveal your new pom-pom!!
Trim off any long pieces and you're done!! Easy-peasy!
Amazon has these Clover pom-pom makers in all sizes for super reasonable prices and they even have a heart pom-pom maker! Whaaaat?! I've got to get one of those!
