Do you have a boring corner in your living room? Or do you want to add a subtle color accent? Then make these mini pom pom embellishments! I used them to add a fun splash of color to our living room. I think the coral looks beautiful against the blue-ish grey background.

This is what you’ll need:

  • a fork
  • scissors
  • colored yarn (wool or cotton, it doesn’t matter)
  • needle & thread

And here’s how you make them:

  1. Wrap the yarn around the outer two prongs of the fork as evenly as you can
  2. Once you have enough yarn wrapped around the fork cut the end
  3. Using a new small string of yarn bunch the pom-pom-in-the-making together and tie really tightly so it is secure. Do this in the middle of the pom pom, in between the prongs to make sure it’s central.
  4. Take your yarn off the fork and cut all the loops. Be sure to get them all!
  5. Now give your mini pom pom a trim to shape it into a perfect, plush, round pom pom
  6. If you want to hang your pom poms like I did, simply use a needle to get a thin thread through the center of the pom pom and tie a knot.

That’s it, have fun!
