does anyone really call them "pom-pons"?
i recently learned of this spelling/pronunciation and i have to admit...it turned my whole world upside down!
either way, it seems i have them on the brain...so i thought i'd post this funny little tutorial i wrote up awhile back.
i know there are a million pom pom toots out there and a ton of ways to make them, but this is the way i do it without any fancy tools or supplies.
all you need is...yarn, fingers, scissors, thread.
more fingers = bigger pom pom more wraps = puffier pom pom
here is what i did for the pom poms in the pic:
wrap yarn 35-40 times around 2-3 fingers
carefully remove from fingers and tie around the center with matching thread
( i tied it around a few times...nice and tight)
trim pom pom to desired shape and size
and voila you have your very own handmade pom pom!
use a needle and thread (or yarn or ribbon) to make a loop for hanging
imagine how you can sass them up with specialty yarns and ribbon and such.
