Fancy crafting in winter? The pom poms are ideal if you want to produce rich and fast decoration and jewelry. There are different techniques for their production. Some of them we have already dedicated other articles. Now we continue the topic with three super simple methods. So you may also be able to finish a few Christmas gifts or decorating ideas in time for the festival!
With this technique even beginners can create super easy pom poms
Pom Poms crafts with cardboard
The materials needed for this method of pom-poms making are as follows:
- A small piece of cardboard the size of a business card (or business card),
- Template for drawing a circle (e.g., a glass),
- A circular object (about a coin),
- smaller and larger scissors,
- Thread / wool in the desired color.
First draw two circles with the glass or other similar object and cut them out. Now take the coin in your hand. Using this you should draw another smaller circle in the middle. Do the same with the second cardboard circle and put it on the first one.
Now draw two lines that run from the outer edge to the inner circle. The distance between these should be a maximum of 3-4 cm. Then cut the piece between these two lines and also the inner circle. It’s best to use the larger scissors. Do this with the two cardboard pieces. How these look after the clipping is illustrated in the picture above.
Wrap the thread evenly around the surface of the 3/4 circle. You can do this multiple times – the layers should match the desired pom poms thickness.
The two end pieces of cardboard must remain free.
After you have finished wrapping, you should separate them from each other. Slide in between the lower blade of the small pair of scissors and start cutting off the loops from the upper side. Take only a longer thread and push it between the two pieces of cardboard. Tie the center of the bundle repeatedly and very tightly. At the end make a double knot and cut out the excess thread. Pull down the boxes. Already you have finished the Pom Pom!

Making huge pom poms with wool
The next tutorial for huge pom poms is really easy! For this you need:
- A big ball of wool, as shown in the picture above,
- A long thread, preferably made of nylon.
Tie the middle of the ball with the nylon thread and pull tight. Tie tightly and cut out the remainder of the thread. As it is shown in the pictures below, cut the loops first on one side and then – on the other side. Now start from inside to outside to match the length of the thread tips.
This and the next few pictures show how easy it is to make giant pom poms!
