  • yarn (I used wool yarn)
  • a fork
  • scissors
  • thread to tie (you can use the yarn if you like; I found it easier to thread the regular thread through the fork)


  • Grab the fork with one hand, as close to the teeth as possible.
  • Leave one end of the yarn a little longer and try and hold it still with your finger. Then start wrapping the yarn around the fork, a few good time. The more yarn you use, the thicker the pom pom.
  • When done wrapping, leave the end a little longer then cut.
  • While still holding the fork and the yarn with one hand, grab a piece of yarn or thick thread and thread it through the fork, right in the middle. Tie super tight then remove the pom pom from the fork. Your pom pom will look more like a bow now.
  • Cut through the edges of the bow and then start fluffing up the pom pom.
  • Trim as needed to get a round, thick, even pom pom.
  • And your tiny pom pom is done! Now go and make pretty things with it!
