If you saw my latest posts on Instagram, you’ll know I’ve been busy making lots of yarn pom-poms for the past few days. And now you know why!

I’m a big fan of yarn pom-pons — you might remember my ornaments from last year. They’re very easy to make. All you need is:

  • yarn — use as many colors as you’d like!
  • a wire potato masher or large salad serving fork (or you could use your fingers like I did with my ornaments)
  • scissors
  • large embroidery needle

I even put together a quick video on how to make a pom-pom:

Once you’ve made plenty of pom-poms (I’ve got about 40 in mine), string them onto a long piece of yarn with your embroidery needle.

Push the needle right through the center of your pom-pom. It should go through pretty easily.

When you’re finished, string it up and celebrate!

Happy weekend, friends!
