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.
