Let's make PomPoms

It is day 6 of 31 days of Creative Inspiration... if you want to visit some of the other blogs participating here is a linkhttp://www.thenester.com/2011/09/31-days-participants.html  There are over 600 people participating... wow!

Don't forget to sign up to follow my blog... you will be entered to win a pair of handknit mittens... made by me!  I'll choose the pattern, you chose the colors.  I'm going to announce the winner on October 14... (that is I LOVE YARN day).  Click the follow button and follow the prompts..
It's so easy to make yarn pompoms.  All you need is a ball of yarn, scissors and a pompom maker (I got mine at JoAnn's).  You can use a cardboard circle too.

Wind the yarn around the pompom maker...

When it is covered on both sides cut through the yarn on each side of the circle.

Tie a double length of yarn through the middle.  Tie it really tight so the yarn doesn't get loose and fall out.

I decided to hot glue these pompoms on a stick... wouldn't a pompom bouquet be cute?!

My wheels are spinning... what else can I do with these?!


  1. Oh holy cow, this is exactly what I need for my old sock monkey!! The pom poms that are still on him need serious help and he's lost a couple! I had NO idea there was a 'pom pom maker'!!!!! See, something new, EVERY day!! :)))

  2. Very cute- I love making pom poms, so fun and they make lovely decorations. I made some and scattered them on a table for a friend's baby shower. Following you now too Jenni! x

  3. Sooooo cute! There's just something about poms like these that make me smile ~ Such fun colors, too!
