You Will Need...
- Yarn (any color or weight will do)
Step by Step Instructions
Start by taking your yarn and wrapping it around a hard surface. You can use your hand, a small piece of cardboard or any other small surface.
Continue wrapping the yarn. The more times you wrap the yarn, the thicker your pom pom will be. As a point of reference, I wrapped the yarn around my hand 30 times for this particular pom pom.
Slip the wrapped yarn off of your hand or surface and using a separate piece of yarn, tie a knot around the center.
Slip scissors through the loops on each end of the pom pom and cut across to create the fringe.
Fluff the yarn to form the pom pom.
