I came across this post, and knew my first pom-pom had to be created.
First, grab what you need: yarn, a ruler, and scissors (easy huh?)
Then, cut an 8-10" piece of yarn, and a 15" piece of yarn. Put those aside.
Carefully take the yarn off your fingers and lay over the 8-10" string as shown below. Tie the string tightly in a knot around your wound yarn.
Cut through the loops to create your pom-pom.
Using your scissors, trim your pom-pom until you have your desired ball shape and size. Don't be afraid to cut here! You will need to trim a lot off to get it looking great. Be careful with that tail though, you do NOT want to accidentally cut that off.
You are done!
Super easy and super cute.
Enjoy your Thursday!
