These cute fluffy Pompons is the super trend right now! We show you in our step-by-step tutorial how to make a Pompon on your own. It´s super easy! BTW: You can call it Pompon OR Pompom.
Tools: Wool and a scissor.
Start with the first color:
Step 1: Hold the tail of yarn in you left hand (when you are a right-hander) under your 3 small fingers and pull it between your trigger finger.
Step 2: Start with wrapping it around your trigger finger and thumb.
The denser you want the pompon, the more wool you will need to wrap. Keep wrapping… 🙂
Have you wrapped ca. 40 times? Then…
Step 3: Snip the yarn with your scissor.
Step 4: Snip a new piece of wool.
Step 5: Slide the wrapped wool off your hand and hold it in the middle.
Step 6: Place the extra wool underneath the wrapped wool and tie it in the middle with 2 tight knots.
Step 7: Now you turn it to the side and cut it through the wool on both sides.
Step 8: Just pull some yarn apart and ruffle the Pompon to make it fluffy.
Step 9: Now trim the Pompon so it becomes round and even. You can cut it down to the size you like it.
Eh voila! Here is your fluffy Pompon.
Repeat it with all colors of your choice.
Now you can decorate it for example at a straw bag or at a alice band.
