pom? Well, a pom-pom is a decorative ball made with different materials and/or
colors. They can be used in decorations, applications on coats,
hats, purses, and for many other things. There are many ways to assemble
pom poms, but I am going to show you one which I consider genius, since your
results will be perfect even if you don’t think you have what it takes. What is
the trick? Simple, my trick is to have the ideal tool for the job. I suggest
you visit Joann’s
Fabric so you can get
your Clover Pom Pom maker.
As you can see, it comes in different sizes. Once you have your
clover pom-pom maker you need to open it. You will notice the colored parts (in
this case blue) move from the center. Open both sides keeping the legs
Ok, it is time to beginning our pom-pom. Choose your material and color(s). I chose knitting yarn of two different colors. The
process is the same, so if you want three or more colors, you can do so; Let
your imagination dictate. Start by winding the yarn over both legs beginning at
the part where they meet, and continuing until you get to the other end
covering the blue piece. Once you get to the end, start winding over the first
pass towards the end where the pieces meet. This way your pom pom will be
fuller and have a better shape. If you are only using one color, you may want
to go over it at least five times, starting where the pieces meet until the
end, then back the other way etc. Do this until is nice and full.
Repeat the same procedure on the other blue piece, remembering to keep the two legs together so as to make it uniform. Once you finish winding the yarn, cut it and close the tool forming a circle. Now cut the yarn through
the center of the tool (between the blue legs), you will notice that it has a
groove. This groove serves two purposes, to fit your scissors facilitating
cutting, and to tie the pom pom (which I will show you later). Now you need to
cut a piece of yarn (6” to 8”) and put it through the same groove you used to
cut it. Go around the tool then tie it. This will hold the yarn together so you
want to make a tight knot. Once the knot is tied, open the tool on both sides. The tool
will look like the second picture of this tutorial, but with the yarn in the
center. Once opened , you have to pull apart the two halves that make the tool. And that is it! You have your POM-POM!!! You can trim the fibers which may have ended being longer as to make the pom pom more even and rounder. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and will see you on the next one!!!
