Step by Step How to Instructions
To make this bookmark design, what you basically need to do is make a pom pom using yarn. Its super easy to make. Dont worry, I am here to guide you. Lets get started.
To make pom poms at home, some people use a fork, others use round shaped cardboard. But what we going to use? We are going to use our figures. Yes, you heard it right.
Take two figures. And just start wrapping yarn around it.
Here we are using two figures because we are going to make medium sized pom poms. If you wish to make small pom poms then use only one figure. As you increase the number of figures so the pom pom size will increase too.
Hold the end of the yarn in place while you wrap over the end, which secures it.
Wrap the yarn around the circle about 100 times or until the yarn is as thick as you want it to be. The thicker your yarn is, the denser your pom pom will be.
When you’ve wrapped them enough, cut the yarn.
Carefully slip the yarn off your fingers. As long as you don’t keep handling it, your yarn bundle should stay together.
Take a separate piece of yarn and tie it into a knot. Tie it 2-3 times.
Once it is tied up tight, cut open all the loops.
And now finish your pom pom by trimming all the yarn to the same length. If you want a fuller pom pom, you can trim it down smaller.
And that’s it! This is a nice way to do it as you need very few supplies and can still make the pom poms a few different sizes.
