Step by Step Directions on how to use a Clover Pom Pom Maker
- First open the pom pom maker on one side holding the two opened ends together.
- Second wrap your yarn at least a 100-125 times (this will depend on the yarn you use and the thickness fo the pom that is desired.) Close the ends of the pom makers
- Open the opposite side of the pom maker again holding the two sides together and wrap yarn again 100-125 times.
- Close the ends & cut the yarn.
- Using the scissors to cut the yarn down the middle of both sides of the wrapped pom maker
- Cut a piece of yarn to a about a 10-12 ” length. Wrap that yarn through the center of the pom maker tightly tying a knot. Tie another knot to secure.
- Open both sides of the pom maker and pop open the center of the maker to reveal your new pom!
- Trim up the pom with a pair of scissors to even out the pom.
- Cut the long yarn end that is left from tying off to be the same length as the yarn ends on the pom.
