You probably know I have a thing for pom poms, I’ve been crafting with these adorable balls for a while now. I even made my own and showed you how to make yours in bulk here so you can craft your own rug. Or how to make these teeny tiny pom poms. And my obsession doesn’t stop here as now it’s time to make fluffy pom poms!

Yarn pom pom balls

The idea came up when I found myself in need for a pink fluffy pom pom to add to Ellie’s winter hat. She’s lost the original one and had to be replaced bu the store bought pom poms didn’t seem to work fine with that hat which looked handmade (but wasn’t). So I thought one of my DIY fluffy pom poms would work best for this hat.

Making fluffy pom poms

We have several pets and I’ve noticed when I brush their fur it gets so soft and fluffy. And one day my pom pom addicted mind wondered if brushing pom poms would give me the same results! I decided to give the pet brush a try to make that fluffy pink pom pom I needed for the hat. Needless to say I’m now addicted to how cute these fuzzy balls are and I might not ever go back to the old school pom poms! Even though I only needed one I had no choice but to make a bunch of these lovely fluffy pom poms, just in case I need to incorporate some in my future crafts. So now I need to make more pom pom crafts lol
