Make: Pom Pom Flowers

Friday, September 28, 2012



Hold the first couple inches of yarn end with thumb

 Start wrapping around fingers; the size of the pom pom will depend on how large you wrap it. For smaller ones use two or three fingers. For larger ones use a piece of cardboard. It needs to be somewhat tight but no circulation needs to be cut off! Make sure it's loose enough to slip off easily.

Pull the end of the yarn that you started with through center and around middle of one side. Then pull around other side, pull tight. 

Cut other end of yarn, leaving a few inches.  

Pull two ends together tightly and tie.

Cut all the "loops" with scissors and fluff pom pom. 


Place on sticks for flowers. I used wooden skewers but real sticks are fun to use too or wire works as well. 

I love fresh flowers. In fact without them I feel like something is missing in my house. But when fresh flowers aren't as readily available I love these little pom pom flowers to bring color into my house and fill my vases.

  7. I always have little pieces of yarn that are left from my knitting projects and I never know what to do with them: I can't throw them out and there's not enough for a new project... This is why I loved this idea, can't wait to try it! xx
