This year I bought this pom pom maker. After years of using a fork or cardboard, it is a total game changer. I can now make the biggest, fluffiest pom poms to dress up presents. I had the best intentions of making pom pom garland, but maybe next year.
Make sure to read the instructions fully before beginning, it’s really easy once you understand how it works. Or you can do what I did and just figure it out by doing it wrong a couple times. Whatever works.
Tips on making the best pom poms:
1. The best way to make big, fluffy pom poms is to wrap as much yarn as possible like in the photos above and below.
2. Get sharp scissors to get through the thick yarn
3. Make sure to tie a tight knot around the pom pom to hold the yarn together well. I have a few that are falling apart, because I tied it too loose.
(This will all make sense once you read through the directions and make your pom pom)
This year I found this washi tape combo at Target. I got it specifically for wrapping my Christmas gifts. The gold adds the perfect touch of elegance to the rugged paper.
How do you wrap your presents? Do you reuse brown paper bags too?
