Easy Pom Poms


Hello! Today I will be showing you how to make some super easy pom poms, and there will be a little extra DIY at the end. Oh, and if you are bothered by chipped nail polish then I must advise you to not look at my nails!


You will need:


+ First, Begin wrapping the wool around your fingers. The more fingers you use, the larger the pom pom will be.


+ Once you have reached your desired pom pom thickness (The picture below shows how much wool is used for an average pom pom) move it off your fingers and loop it around your forefinger as shown.




+ Now cut of the excess wool into a long piece.



+ Use the piece to wrap around the centre of the loop of wool, and tie a double (or triple. or quadruple) knot. Make sure it is tight or your pom pom will fall apart!


+ Cut each end of the loop with a sharp pair of scissors.



+ There will often be little loops left on the pom pom so remember to trim these too! You may have to dig around the pom pom to find them as they are often deep down near where you tied the pom pom.


+ Once that is done, trim the edges of the pom pom to neaten it up.


+ Ta da! One super easy pom pom finished!



Okay, now for another DIY to make with all your pom poms. A pom pom garland! (Or hair accessory, if you wrap it around your head). You will need pom poms, a long string of wool, and a needle.


This is a quick DIY needle if you don't have one big enough to thread wool through. You will need scissors and a wooden skewer.

+ Firstly, cut your skewer into a needle size.

+ Then, cut the end of the skewer slightly (as you can see in the picture below).



+ Now, pull a piece of wool through your skewer and you have a needle!


+ Next, use a needle to pull the wool through the pom pom.




+ Then continue adding pom poms onto your garland until it looks awesome!


And that's all there is to it. If you decide to make this DIY please be sure to send me a picture via email or Instagram (@cranberrydeer) I would love to see!

Also, sorry for the late post this week! I have been waiting for my tripod to arrive so I could take the pictures for this post.

Hope your week is super duper! x
