How to make a Pom Pom

For these particular pom poms i used Charism by loops and threads and bernat blanket yarn

I took some thick cardboard and i cut a circle from jar lid, this one is about 6″ in diameter, cut a circle in the middle and a notch out of the side. If you don’t enjoy this method there are other devices out there that can help make pom poms but if your cheap like me a box will suffice

Wrap the yarn around the circle trying to keep it all ontop of each other so all the threads are of the same length, be sure not to wrap too tight as it will slowly bend the cardboard

When you have reached your desired amount, the less yarn the thinner, the more yarn the fuller Tie off the centre with wire, or very strong twine or yarn

Cut all the loops at theend of the cardboard circle and then pull it out of the ring

you can make pom poms out of any type of yarn, twine or even ribbon just experiment and have fun!

to fluff out your pom use loosely spun yarn such as charisma by loops and threads and use a fine tooth comb to brush it out,
