Step 1: What You Need

  • a pair of scissors
  • a fork
  • some wool

Step 2:

Take the wool and wrap it around the fork about 100 times. Make sure to leave two loose pieces of wool to tie all the loops of wool together (see photos above).

Step 3:

Slip the wool off the fork and cut the wool loops in half with your scissors, as in the photo above.

Step 4:

Fluff out the strands of wool and there you have it - a mini pom pom! It might take a few tries to get the right amounts of wool etc., but with a bit of practice you'll be able to make a perfect mini pom pom in seconds.

Step 5:

You can make tons of fun DIYs with these pompoms. I glued a few of them in a flower pattern onto a piece of felt, to make a fun coaster!
