How To Make the Perfect Pom-Pom Easily


Good Morning Lovelies, 

Pom-pom making has been one of my favourite ways to get crafty. Over the years, I have found it a form of staying calm, even when some have gone wrong. I have made wreaths for Christmas, Halloween and others homes too. Earlier this year, back in August, I even made a Manchester United one for my nephew. 

Getting crafty is perfect for healing my mind after a stressful day and I couldn’t suggest getting stuck into a project more. Especially if you can get the hang of pom-pom making. It is so simple and once you get stuck in, you will love it. 

Below is a quick and simple guide to help you get started: 


  • Different Sized Pom-Pom Makers
  • Thin/Chunky/Fluffy Wool/Yarn
  • Scissors


  1. Pick a wool/yarn that you would like to use or to suit the theme of your project. This can be thick or thin, fluffy or chunky, it is completely up to you. Then pick the right pom-pom maker for the size you would like to create for your project. 
  2. Taking the maker, open one side of it and begin winding your wool around it until it is completely filled up and thick. Make sure it is secure and won’t unravel before moving onto the second side.
  3. Make a start on the second side once you know the first is safe, doing the same thing on it as before. Try to make sure that you have the same amounts on both sides.
  4. Close both sides of the makers and ensure that it is secure. Then take your scissors, start to cut around the edges of the maker, but don’t undo them at all. Then close the arm into the middle, until it snaps into place.
  5. Once both sides are cut, take a length of extra wool/yarn and tie it tightly around the middle of the pom-pom maker, tying it in place tightly or multiple times. When tied, you can then open the pom-pom maker up and remove it. 
  6. Remove the extra long pieces of wool or snip any overflowing pieces of wool/yarn to make a neat pom-pom to use on your project. Super simple and complete!

Depending on the project and the wool you use, it can take a short or long amount of time to complete, but once you get started you won’t be able to stop. The Man United wreath literally took me a week to do!
