This tutorial shows how to make a yarn puffball (a.k.a. pom-pon). I believe this method is more sophisticated than the other methods I've found online. It produces more durable puffs that can be attached temporarily or permanently.

Step 1: Items you'll need:

1. Yarn (between 150 and 200 yards)
2. 30" Crochet thread (I think this is size 8 but I'm not positive. For this application, the bigger the better, we need it to be strong.)
3. Empty soda can
4. Darning needle
5. Scissors
Excellent instructions! Thank you for sharing! :)
Wow, I didn't know that there was a different way to make puffballs to the way that I knew. <br>Nice, and the puffball comes out really good. :D
Very nice! Great instructions. :)
