DIY Pom-Poms

Pom-poms are on-trend right now! They are being paired with Boho style designs. We also carry many sports related charms, these are such a cute embellishment to cheer on your team and add color. Here at Lima we like using Bakers Twine to create our pom-poms. The cotton in the Bakers Twine creates a nice fluffy pom-pom and it comes in many colors. Feel free to try using hemp, thread, or yarn. Let’s get started…

You will need: A fork, at least 2ft of twine (depends on how thick you want your pom-pom), and sharp scissors.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step

Step 1

Got to your kitchen and get a fork and pick the color(s) of twine you would like to use.

Step

Step 2

Feed your twine end under the first fork prong (leave a tail of twine sticking out, you will use it later) and start wrapping the rest of the cord around.

Step

Step 3

We wrapped our twine around 24/25 times.

Step

Step 4

Trim your twine off the spool to shorten the tail, leaving enough to wrap around and tie.

Step

Step 5

Bring the tail up through the middle of the fork and bring the other tail up to it.

Step

Step 6

Bring both tails together and tie.

Step

Step 7

Remove from the fork.

Step

Step 8

Tighten and tie a knot.

Step

Step 9

Cut the loops with scissors.

Step

Step 10

Cut and fluff until you get the pom-pom size you desire.

Step

Step 11

Attach your pom-pom with a jump ring or tie it onto your design.
