Craft Project: Heart Shaped Pom Pom

Embellish gifts, hats, scarves, or whatever else you can think of with these adorable heart shaped pom poms. Simple directions below.

Supplies
Scissors
Yarn

Wrap yarn around fingers (at least 50 times). The more yarn the better.


Slip the yarn off your fingers. Tie a separate strand of yarn around the center of the ball of yarn (refer to dotted yellow lines). Make sure to tie the knot as tight as you can, cinching the yarn.

Cut all the loops of yarn with a pair of scissors.

Trim the yarn down to a regular shaped pom pom. Then, just trim the pom pom into a shape of a heart. Done.

Your pom pom heart is so adorable now I am going to a buy a ball of wool, maybe in pretty pink.:}

Red Neon Hearts said...

What a gorgeous idea!

I tried making it myself but once I'd made the pom pom ball, I somehow couldn't shape it into a heart, it just kept looking like a ball!!

Any tips on how to shape it?

kawaii crafter said...

The pom pom heart shape is just like the candy hearts. It's flat on the front and back. I found you can get a better shape if the front and back is flat opposed to rounded. Hope that make sense and helps. :)

Just wanna say that this instruction for the heart-shaped pom-pom was the best instruction for any craft project I have ever seen! THANK YOU VERY MUCH and I sure hope there will be more craft projects in the future.

Xavier said...

Would it work the same way if i use my whole hand instead of two fingers ?

Zakka Life said...

Xaiver,

Yes, you can use your whole hand but you will have to wrap more yarn around it. Your heart pop pom will also be larger in size.

Hee, I love that so much I did that thing between a gasp and a squee. Is that a squasp?
