For some pom poms are one thing I have never forgotten how to make – unlike forgetting how to knit, crochet, boil an egg properly…

You can use pom poms for just about anything, zipper pulls, on the tops or ends of winter hats, keychains… the possibilities are endless. It’s a great little craft that can take a short or long period of time depending on the size and you can get rid of all that yarn you bought when you were really into knitting for three weeks. Perfect!

Check out the two super easy how to make pom poms tutorial below. The first is with the cardboard ring, which is how I learned. The second is ring-less which seems like something I wouldn’t be able to do with my current hand-eye coordination but, you can certainly try! At least you wont have to cut out a cardboard ring shape. You can use a variety of mediums if you’re looking for a fluffier pom pom as well.
