Emily Explains: How to Make a Pom-Pom With a Fork!

I love the holidays or really any excuse to hang warm, twinkling lights everywhere. Normally, I adorn the rooms of my home with crocheted snowflakes, miniature knits, pom-poms and Christmas tree swag. Unfortunately, I have been so busy this month that I have not decked a single hall! But today I started working on some small pom-poms to make a holiday garland. I used Berroco Flicker for a little bit of sparkle, but you could use any of our wooly yarns and hold it with some holiday tinsel to make them shimmer.

Cute and miniature are my favorite kind of poms and you can make them with a fork from your kitchen. It is so easy!

Follow along with my how-to video:

I used a sewing needle and threaded it throughout the center of each pom-pom, arranging them just right.

It is a great project for kids of all ages! Good for the tree, around a present or anywhere really. I hope this inspires you to make a few for your home or as a gift for a loved one.

Who doesn’t love pom-poms?

Happy Making,
