I decided That I needed some pom poms but mine never turn out!  So I was in Marshalls and saw this for 14.99 and thought this is the last time I attempt this.  So far they are not looking so good.  But I am determined. Not giving up !!  So here’s the kit I have to say great instructions and great yarn and great ideas.  So if there is a trick to this please share!!  I have purchased lots of pom pom makers, even made some of my own and this one is by far the best.  Game on girls!! and boys!!!

  1. Looks like fun! My grandmother used to knit all of us little slippers with a pom pom on the toe and I remember her making her pom poms with two pieces of cardboard cut in donut shapes and she would wind the yarn around them, then cut around the outer edge and tie them off inbetween and those pom poms looked great and she made hundreds that way!! lets pom pom everyone!!

  2. When I was a kid, my mom used to make pom poms. And I remember her wrapping yarn through a circle and tying it then cutting the strings at the folded edge. (same thing judy just said)

    I saw a thing on pinterest that said to make mini pom poms, wrap your thread/yard around a fork and then tie and cut the strings.

  3. In Girl Scouts we used to wrap them around our hands/fingers, tie a string around the middle and then cut the folded edges. I dont know how many times you would wrap it around, but you would make sure it wasnt a loose wrap and I guess the fluffier you want it, the more you would wrap it around.

    Let me see if I can find ya a link.

  4. Here ya go.
    I googled “make pom poms using fingers”
    there are quite a few sites that lead to it,
    but here is one with pictures and it says how many times to wrap around. This will definitely work.
    So no need for a template. As my Grandmother would tell us “gotta use what the Lord gave ya” haha.

    I remember making them with my gran using 2 circles cut from card with a hole in the middle. Wrap, wrap, wrap around until room to thread no more through. Then cut around the outside edge and tie tightly before pulling away the card.

    I’m liking the look of the “shaggy” pom poms made from strips of old t-shirts. Keep meaning to give them a go.

  6. yup, that is how she did it too and then she just snip snipped the stragglers and they looked perfect!! she made lots of them!!!
