I have a little different post today. I'm going to do a written tutorial on how to make pom poms. It does include my crocheting, but I'm just adding pom poms to the top of a few hats I already made. Pom Pom's are so cute, and they make great crafting projects especially with the holiday season in full swing :)
Scissors (try to use sharp scissors because dull ones will make it more difficult for cutting the yarn)
Wrap the yarn around your hand (preferably the hand you don't write with) until you have the desired amount you want your ball to be.
Right side cut
Both sides cut
Take the scissors and cut one side the "bow" and then cut the other side. It should look the picture above
Cut the yarn to down until it forms the shape of a ball. You may want to keep a plastic bag or the trash can near because this step can get messy. You can just toss the stray pieces of yarn in the trash as you go along.
Congratulations! You've made a pom pom!!
* Attaching the pom pom to the top of a hat *
I'm a little surprised that I didn't make pom poms for some of my hats before now. I guess I was being a little lazy at the time. Anyway this step is fairly simple.
All you have to do for this step is keep a small hole in the top of the hat and place the two loose ends through. From the inside of the hat tie the loose ends together until secured. On
Side Note: I already completed this hat, so I took the crocheting hook to make a small hole to put the loose inside the top of the hat. Then I just followed the rest of the step.
