I have a really cute and practical home project in mind and it requires loads and loads of pompoms. But since I’m always short on time, I’ve been postponing this project for a while because I couldn’t figure out how to make pom poms in bulk. No more waiting now! With this simple DIY pom poms method I made a hundred of them in about half an hour (video shooting included so you might be able to make yours in about 20 minutes). Isn’t this awesome!
I made these in solid colors but you can blend the yarn and get pretty pompoms in all sorts of colors. I just thought it’s less confusing for this tutorial although shooting pink and light purple is not the easiest!
How to make Pom Poms
- yarn (I made 14 pom poms out of a bundle of yarn of 500 feet)
- Ikea chair! (just kidding; any chair will do; similar here)
[amazon-related-products keywords=”product suggestions keywords”]
- Turn the chair upside down aka legs up.
- Pick 2 legs then wrap yarn around those. Depending on how thick you want your pom pom you may need to use the whole bundle. The more yarn you use, the fluffier and thicker the pom pom.
- Pick 2 strands of yarn of about 10″ and fold each in half. Tie both ends of the yarn that you wrapped around chair legs then repeat the process to tie around the rest of the yarn, all along the strands. Decide how large you want your pom pom and tie as tightly as you can, twice. Each of these will be the center of your poms and will hold the strands together so you want them real tight.
- Cut in between each tie.
- Fluff the pompoms and trim a bit here and there if needed to make them round.
- If using in a craft or sewing project you may want to leave the strands used to tie the poms on so don’t trim those off.
- And that’s it! Your beautiful pompoms are done! Enjoy the fluffiness! Or let someone real cute steal them from you, hehe

Thank you so much for this video! I fell in love with your pompom rug – I want to make it for my great-granddaughter – but I was put off by the amount of work it would take to make the pompoms. And I don’t always understand written instructions, so seeing what you meant helped me to visualize it.
Hi, Susan! I’m glad you liked this idea and found my tutorial easy & informative. And thanks for taking the time to leave a comment & let me know :)
Hello. What is the best kind of yarn to use? I am new to crafting are there are so many types of yarn it’s overwhelming. I see thick, thin and everything in between and made with all different materials. HELP please. :)
Hi Tammy. These are very similar to what I used for this project https://amzn.to/31Gi8FF
I need pictures!
There’s a video included, Carla! No photo would be able to make things more clear than the video.
This is super useful, I’m definitely gonna use it! Can you use yarn of any thickness/thinness?? Also, where can you get a mat base thingy from (during a pandemic)???
Thanks for your lovely comment, Rebekah! You can get a non slip mat here https://amzn.to/2DVX6um
I have not done this in a long time so I have no idea how to do this so yeah
OH MY GOODNESS! I’m so glad you sent this email. I’m making a pom pom rug and it is taking forever to make all the pom poms. I actually started making it 4 years ago and was finally going to finish it for my cousin for Christmas. I even bought a pom pom making tool that was really of no help. This is going to save me so much time. Thank you so much.
I have an even faster way. Use yarn that’s already in a skein… Just tie and cut and there done. I’m still figuring out how much yarn to make fluffy pom poms. With the yarn I’m using I found steaming them really helped them puff up.
Yes, but a skein is so big, you’ll only be able to get huge pom poms.
