Hi, friends...Are you enjoying the winter or are you thinking of spring?
I have spring on my mind, but mother nature...thinks differently. It's been snowing here for the past three days so I've been busy making snowballs...not the frosty kind but warm fuzzy snowballs made with yarn.
I put together an easy tutorial for you to follow
You will need:
yarn, scissors and your hand
Cut a strand of yarn about six to twelve inches long and lay it on a flat surface.
You will use it later to tie your pom-pom
Using the skein drape a strand of yarn over the front of your hand
Wrap the yarn loosely around your hand about 100 times
Carefully slide the yarn from your hand and place it on top of the piece you previously cut.
Lift both sides up and tie a tight knot on top of the rolled yarn
Tie a tight knot!!
Next cut all the loops
After all the loops are cut, your soon to be pom-pom will have a lot of spider legs
Don't worry you are heading in the right direction.
Hold your pom-pom in one hand and give it a good trim all around.
Keep trimming until it is round like a ball.
This is what it should look like when you are finished.
You can cut off the two long pieces of yarn or leave them intact.
It all depends on how you want to use your pom-pom.
For easy clean up use a Ziploc bag to store all the fuzzy clippings.
The clippings can be used for stuffing for other craft projects.
