how to make a loopy fork pom pom
I finally got a chance to photograph a little how-to for the loopy fork pom poms I made last week. They are super easy and quick and all you need is yarn, a fork (I used a larger silver serving fork) and scissors. It takes about three minutes to make one once you get the hang of it and are such a fun alternative to traditional pom poms, enjoy!!
Start by cutting about a six inch piece of yarn and laying it in the center prongs, this is the piece you will use to tie it all together so just hold it down with your hand the best you can while weaving back and forth with the skein of yarn until the entire fork is covered. Once you get to the top of the fork trim the yarn from the skein and then carefully pull that first short piece up and around and loosely tie it together before slowly sliding the pom pom off of the fork. Finish by tightly tying the pom pom with a few more knots and then trim the loose longer pieces and you're done! Easy and fun…hope your week is off to a great start! xo
