About


  • I'm Kristen, a clumsy but determined home cook and crafter living in the Boston area with my husband, B, and I have an interest in all things food and craft.

    This blog was created to keep track of my various projects and adventures. They may not all be successes, but my goal is to remain unintimidated by whatever engages my curiosity.

Pom Pom Flowers

I have a thing for flowers that look like pom poms. Mums, allium, chive blossoms, dahlias – love ‘em! Since fresh flowers aren’t always in the budget, and because I have a brown thumb, I started thinking about what I could do to brighten up our apartment with flowers without actually using flowers. Soon, the idea for some sort of pom pom flower started bouncing around in my head, and this is what I came up with.

How to make pom poms? I googled around and found a number of tutorials, including several that use the cardboard donut method, which can be found here, here, and here. Unfortunately, I’m impatient and not particularly coordinated, so cardboard donuts were flying everywhere. My favorite method is found in the pom pom tutorial at Bella Dia. This method makes slightly more yarn scraps, but you can recycle the scraps by using them as stuffing for craft projects, or you can put them in a small fabric pouch and add a few drops off lavender, rose, or another type of essential oil to make a drawer sachet.

Though my method basically follows the Bella Dia tutorial, I have made some slight variations, so I’ve posted my method below.

Pom Pom Flower Supplies

What you’ll need for the project:

yarn
small, sharp scissors
wire cutters
a hot glue gun and glue sticks
materials for the stems (paper or fabric covered floral wire or my favorite, branches or twigs)

Pom Pom Wrapping Yarn

Using your thumb, hold the end of the yarn against your fingers as you begin to wrap the yarn. After a few wraparounds, you should be able to let the end go and continue wrapping. I size my pom poms by fingers: 2 is small, 3 is medium, and 4 is large. Don’t wrap the yarn too tightly, or you’ll have blue fingers and won’t be able to slip the yarn off easily later!

Pom Pom Finished Wrapping

The more times you wrap the yarn, the fuller your pom pom will be. However, try not to overdo it, or you may have trouble in the later stages because there’s too much bulk. For small pom poms, I wrap between 50-75 times; for medium, 75-100; for large, 100-125. Yarns come in many different thicknesses, so you may find that you need more or less wraps to achieve the fullness that you’d like.

Pom Pom Fuzzball

After you’ve finished wrapping the yarn, carefully slide it off of your fingers.

Pom Pom Tie

Cut a piece of yarn that is between 4 and 6 inches long to use as a tie. Place the wrapped yarn on top of the cut piece, trying to center it as much as possible.

Pom Pom Yarnball

Pull the cut yarn as tightly as you can over the wrapped yarn, and tie a knot.

Pom Pom Cut

Using a small pair of sharp scissors, cut the top of the yarn loops th entire way around.

Pom Pom Pretrim

After you cut all of the loops, you’ll be left with a shaggy looking pom pom.

Pom Pom Trimmed

Using your scissors, trim off the longer pieces of yarn until you’re satisfied with the appearance of the pom pom. Fuzzy!

Pom Pom Trim

Fire up your glue gun, and find a place on the pom pom where the yarn looks a tad sparse or where things are a bit flat or uneven. Basically, you’re looking for a good place to glue the stem. Part the yarn to expose the more dense area of the pom pom. This will make a sturdy anchor for your stem. Apply a small amount of hot glue to your choice of stem, and press into the exposed anchor area.

Pom Pom Glued

Ta da! You’ve got a pom pom flower.

Pom Pom Snip

Use wire cutters to trim the stem to the desired length, and have fun figuring out where you’re going to put your flower!

    Great tutorial! I can see myself making these to adorn gifts!



  2. Tracy says:

    Well how cool is that? I share your pom-pom flower love – great idea here!!



  3. peabody says:

    Those look neat. I suck at craft projects and mine would so not turn out like that. ;)



  4. Kristen says:

    Thanks, everyone!

    peabody – I’m about 50/50 when it comes to both craft and food experiments. And the 50% that fail are usually real messes. ;) Thankfully, this was a success, and I’m sure if you gave it a go you’d be pleasantly surprised by the result!



  5. Allison says:

    Well, now I will have to go collect some sticks on my way home from work so I can make this lovely project!

  13. Joanne Tinley says:

    What a lovely simple idea! I haven’t made pompoms for years and I love those. Do you mind if I blog about your tutorial when I’ve made some?



  14. Kristen says:

    Thank you, Joanne! I think it would be great if you blog about the tutorial when you’ve made some.



  15. kate says:

    i heart this! just ADORABLE!



  16. Carrie says:

    Love pom poms! The white with the twigs are my fave. =)



  17. Savvy says:

    I love that lamp. Where does it come from? The pompom are adorable too.



  18. Andi says:

    What a great idea, thanks!



  19. Kristen says:

    Thanks so much, Kate, Carrie, and Andi!

    Savvy – I actually purchased the lamp at Lamps Plus (link goes directly to the lamp). It actually looks like they’re on a great sale right now!



  20. Savvy says:

    Thank you so much. This is a great site. But is that the same lamp? Yours looks like it is shaped a little differently.



  21. Kristen says:

    The lamp base does look a little more “rounded” on the Lamps Plus site, but if you click on the “In Scene” photo, I think it looks more accurate. Plus, in the picture I took there was a dark shadow around the underside of the base, which doesn’t help because it makes the base appear flatter. It’s the same lamp, though!



  22. Megan Adams says:

    Those are super cute! I am making some when I can find the scissors…I love the vase you put them in! I want one! haha



  23. Brandon says:

    I was skeptical when I started reading, but it turned out very neat and looks great as a decoration on the package. I want to try this with hand spun yarn!

    Keep up the great posts!



  24. Sandi says:

    Brandon and Sandi – So glad to hear that you made them and that they turned out so well!

    Lynn – Thanks! I have tried some multi-colored ones, and they do look cute. I’ve also experimented with using embroidery and crochet thread with the yarn, and that looks pretty neat, too.

  49. Kristen says:

    Thanks so much, everyone, for the great feedback. I’m so happy to see that this tutorial is still one that people want to try. And I love everyone’s pom pom stories!

    Cindy – I’m sorry to hear that you’re having problems getting the pom poms to be circular. Sometimes I have to keep trimming the bits of yarn to get a nice circle. From time to time I still end up with a side that’s uneven or flatter, and I just glue the flower to the stem on that end. Perfect fix! ;)

    I may be missing a step or something, but when I tie the string around the ball of yarn that was wound around my fingers, there is a clear separation of the yarn around where I tied the string. It looks separated so that you can see where the string was tied. What could I be doing wrong? I try to pull the string as tightly around the ball of yarn as much as I can but it still seems to happen. Any suggestions? Thanks so much! :)



  134. Kristen says:

    Ashland – What type of yarn are you using? I’ll usually fluff the yarn around the area where the string was tied, and as I trim off the excess that area blends in completely with the rest of the pom pom. This is just a thought but, if you’re using thinner yarn, then it may be why that separation is still visible, even after trimming.

  137. Benjamin says:

    I’m a little confused on the 4-6 inch piece. do you put it through the center? and tie it how?



  138. Terri says:

    This is delightful and, thanks to your clear tutorial, seems a breeze to make! Thank you so much for sharing!



  139. Sara says:

    Great tutorial! My pom pom turned out perfectly. Linking up at http://www.tangledhappy.blogspot.com tomorrow. Thanks for sharing this. :)



  140. Jess says:

    This is the best idea ever. I can’t afford flowers…but know I kinda can :o )

    THANK YOU!!



  141. Terri says:

    Thank God for people like you who make craft tutorials like this so easy to follow! Right next to me are two small pom-poms I made just a few minutes ago. I wouldn’t have managed without your picture how-to. Now I know what I’ll be making on lazy Sunday mornings! ;-)

    really sweet way of using it, on the journal. :)



  143. Emily says:

    I absolutely love these. I have SO much yarn mostly for crocheting, but I need an excuse to get more yarn for other projects, so this was a perfect use for my old balls of yarn. I have so many different colored pompoms around my house now! … Some of them are multi colored. I layered the yarns to make poofier pompoms… and they are so cool!

    thank you!



  144. Lesleigh says:

    I am going to use this for decoration at a baby shower I am throwing soon! There are going to be mustard and grey pom-poms all around! Thanks for the idea!



  145. Jewellie says:

    I used to make these for my roller skates when I was a kid! Don’t forget to use your hair dryer to fluff them. Spritz the pom pom just a bit with water and blow dry to ‘fluf’!!!



  146. Maria says:

    great tutorial. I will make it for my little princes birthday



  147. Krasimira Ganeva says:

    Thanks for the great tutorial. I share it on my blog and link it back to you http://krasart.com/?p=291



  148. Katie says:

    Hello! Awesome tutorial. I was wondering if you would recommend a specific type of yarn – I’ve look and many times the yarn I have come across looks to be too thin. Is there a particular brand/type you used?



  149. Becky says:

    going to make my bridal bouquet out of pom poms..thanks for a great idea!



  150. laura rowe says:

    This is incredible! I have been so confused by those cardboard donut tutorials and this one is so easy! I will definitely be sharing this on my blog!!



  151. rena says:

    Approximately how much yarn do you need to make one of these? I am new to this and I have no idea how many yards to get!



  152. Kristen says:

    rena – I’ve never measured how much yarn is needed, yardage-wise, but I can say that most packages of yarn that you can buy at the craft store will yield many, many pom poms.



  153. Joan says:

    If you want them fluffier, try giving them a gentle brush with a doggy slicker brush. The type of brush with the thick mat of tiny, slightly bent wire teeth, you can usually find a small one in the pet section of the grocery store. It will fray the ends of the yarn more and make it more of a fuzz ball than a ball of yarn. Some crocheters use the same technique to brush out finished pieces to look like fury animals!



  154. Marie says:

    Such cute pom poms! I remember making some in elementary school, but they were shaggy. The fuzzy ones look a lot cuter!



  155. Carlene Jacobsen says:

    I use 2 pieces of cardboard cut in a circle (to size desired) punch a hole in the center and with a yarn needle go in and out and around! once done slip a pair of sharp scissors between the cardboard circles and cut. they come out pretty even.

    Forgot to say after cutting, tie the center with a piece of yarn before removing cardboard.



  156. Kahla says:

    Just made a few of these with paper clips for the stems. So cute!



  157. Ally says:

    Oh my goodness I’m so addicted to making these!

    It took me a minute to figure out that I needed to cut the yarn down closer to the core to make them furry/fuzzy.

    Thanks for this most awesome tutorial!!

    My granny’s wondering why I’m making so many fuzz balls :) She’ll get her surprise soon! It’ll make her so happy!!!



  158. Elif says:

    These are so cute! I’m making a bunch for the drama club’s Horton. He has to look through a bunch to find the one with the Who speck on it. :)



  159. Kate says:

    These are great! I love how you showed the difference uses for them too :) Thanks!



  160. Jenelle W. says:

    I know you posted this 4 years ago…but I found you now and I’m so thankful! I HATE the donut method too and yours is SO MUCH EASIER! THANKS!



  161. Jamie says:

    I used to make these as a kid and pin them on my shoes with safety pins! A tip when wrapping the yarn – instead of wrapping around your fingers, you can wrap around an empty toilet paper/paper towel roll. You’ll have to squish the roll down a bit to remove the wrapped yarn.



  162. Sharidan says:

    This is quite possibly the best tutorial I have seen in yonks – can’t wait to make these and put them all over my house like a crazy lady!
