How To Make A Yarn Pom Pom Without A Pom Pom Maker!


Yarn puff balls or pom poms are very popular on hats and as embellishments for crochet/knit/everyday projects but finding a puff ball/pom pom maker isn't always so easy. I even own a few and it seems that every time that I need one, I can't find one. This is how I make a yarn puff ball when I can't find my puff ball makers. I think it's pretty easy and fun and I hope ya'll like this picture tutorial! Or for a video tutorial, click here
