To make these mini pom poms you will need:

A Fork

Step 1 Wrap the wool around the prongs of the fork about 50 times. Make sure you leave a slight gap at the bottom of the prongs as this will be needed in step 2.

Step 1

Wrap the wool around the prongs of the fork about 50 times. Make sure you leave a slight gap at the bottom of the prongs as this will be needed in step 2.

Step 2 Once the wool has been wrapped around the fork, trim it so it is no longer attached to the ball of wool. Then cut a piece of the same colour wool about 20cm long. Thread the end of this wool in between the two middle fork prongs underneath where you wrapped the wool in step 1.

Step 2

Once the wool has been wrapped around the fork, trim it so it is no longer attached to the ball of wool. Then cut a piece of the same colour wool about 20cm long. Thread the end of this wool in between the two middle fork prongs underneath where you wrapped the wool in step 1.

Step 3 Bring the end of the piece of wool that is behind the fork through the middle two prongs at the top and then tie in a knot with the other end of the wool. Make sure this knot is tied tightly as it will be what holds your pom pom together. Tie in a double knot to hold it in place.

Bring the end of the piece of wool that is behind the fork through the middle two prongs at the top and then tie in a knot with the other end of the wool. Make sure this knot is tied tightly as it will be what holds your pom pom together. Tie in a double knot to hold it in place.

Step 4 Gently slide the wool off of the fork, then cut the loops on either side.

Step 6 If you want to hang your pom pom or attach it to something, make sure you leave the end of the wool that you tied the pom pom together with uncut. If you want the pom pom to be loose then trim this along with the other ends of the wool. Enjoy making your lovely pom pom crafts! Subscribe to my newsletter to receive fun craft ideas and freebies!
