Pom Pom – 6 Ways to Make Them and How to Attach Them

Pom PomA pom pom is easy to make and easy to use. I have learned 6 different methods to make them. Some you will already know and some will be new and maybe a little crazy to you. When possible I like to give folks options.

The application for this craft is boundless. Adults, kids and everybody in between loves pom-poms. I’ve also made a video to help with the oddest of all methods. Hope you enjoy and benefit from this information. By the way, I do highly recommend a good pair of really sharp scissors .



Pom Pom Made with a Fork: The Video

This is one cool way to make your pom pom. It keeps the size consistent and you can go from kiddy to dinner forks to serving forks for a bigger or smaller version.




How to Make Your Pom Pom

Pom Pom Pom Pom Made by Hand
You don’t need to buy anything other than the yarn and a pair of scissors. The main tool is literally in your hands.

I found the very cool instructions : Here Dana shows you a few extra goodies while you’re there.




Pom Pom Pom Pom Made with a Square
Hey, you can get a circle out of a square. Here is a Free tool I’m sure you have lying around the house. Another cool method. You can find the complete tutorial: Here  : Art Projects for Kids is a great website not just for pom-poms but a lot of other stuff you and your kids would really like.

Check out The PDF Shop ! Kathy Barbro is a cool artist who seems to have an endless supply of craft ideas, plus she likes Andy Warhol which makes her extra special to me.



Pom Pom Pom Pom : Made with Cardboard
This is just plain awesome. You recycle and you get pom-poms. The world can almost be perfect. I most admit I don’t use this method often enough. I did become VERY fond of it when I needed to supply a troop of Girl Scouts with pom-pom makers. You too can be rescued with the complete instructions: Here



Pom Poms Make a Pom Pom on a Loom
I have recently learned how to make pom poms on a flower loom. I quickly became obsessed  Its easy, fun and a lot quicker then I would have ever imagined.

I so loved this pom pom that I have put it not just on top of my hats but also on the side of some of my loom knit hats, the way I would put a flower.

Just beautiful. For complete instructions: Click Here


Pom Pom Pom Pom Made with the Clover
I sometimes feel guilty in saying that this is one of my favorite methods. I like uniformity and I get that with this tool. I can control the size of my pom-poms almost to the exact dimension. It’s not a high price but cost is cost when you consider that you don’t have to pay  anything, like in zero dollars with the other 4 methods. In fact you get to recycle with the cardboard. Well at least I can say that I do on occasion use anyone of these listed methods. You choose what works best for you – not me.

Hope my information was helpful! Now, Let me know what you think.



Use Pom Poms as Animal Ears 


Pom Poms You can always change the position of the pom-poms of your hat to get a different effect.

These little pom-poms were made for my Mouse Hats. I get frustrated trying to knit animal ears so I looked for an easier method and making pom-poms with the Clover was the best thing I could think of.

    Your You Tube tutorial for the Clover Pom Pm Maker is great but if you’d zoom out a bit, the entire room maker would be in the screen. It’s hard to see it all and very hard to focus on that much movement that close up. Otherwise, thank you. Your explanations are great!

    I do not see the tassel that you made on the boot cuff. Am I missing something? Where Can I find that? A pom pom would be too big for this project.
    And thank you so much, I love your Youtube videos. You are very patient and an excellent teacher,

    • Denise Canela March 8, 2016 at 8:16 pm

      Hi Jodi – I added the instructions on the same page as the boot cuff pattern

  3. Jan November 17, 2015 at 3:09 pm

    I did not understand what you use to tie the pom pom on the fork.

  4. Kathy Young November 8, 2015 at 3:14 pm

    I saw the video for the rubber band cover for a pencil, crochet hook & loom hook! My question is … Can you make one for the larger loom hook? I love your web-site, it is very helpful since I just started using the round loom set & love them!

    • Denise Canela November 8, 2015 at 4:08 pm

      The pattern is the same regardless of the size of the hook. Your only limitation is in the stretch of your rubber bands.

    Do you have a video on how to attach pom poms? Thanks,

    • Denise Canela September 7, 2015 at 9:10 am

      Not yet Annette, but thanks for asking. I think I will and soon. :)… stay tuned….

    I was just curious if you know anywhere online that I can just buy a pom pom already made to put on a hat? I have looked in my town in craft stores but they only sell cheap ones, not ones like these. I may just have to make my own if I can’t find one to buy online! Im not good at hands on arts and crafts so I would prefer to just buy one lol
