Pom Poms are a basic craft staple. They're remarkably easy to make yourself. It takes less than a minute to make a pom pom. Most crafters will have the supplies, because all you need is yarn and a fork.  Making these pom poms are also an easy way to use up leftover yarn that's just hanging around the house.

Step 1: Supplies

All you  need to make a pom pom is yarn, a fork, and some scissors.

If you want to make larger pom poms, you'll need a bigger fork, like a salad serving fork.

The pom poms I'm making in this tutorial are about 1 inch in diameter (marked "small fork" in the image below). I used a simple dinner fork. 

Great idea! I have always wanted to make one of these, and this is a simple way to do it!
<p>i do really this is a cool way to do this</p>
<p>Use a straight fork. If your fork tapers toward the end of its tines, your ball will end up a bit wonky.</p>

<p>actually you can wrap it around your first two fingers and tie it in the middle trim it and your done</p>
