This is very handy if you need to make a few small pom poms!!

It works very well! We tried it!

You need a fork and some wool to get started!

1. Wrap your wool around the fork – try wrap it in the middle of the prongs

We wrapped our wool around the fork about 30 times (30 times around).


Then tie a little wool – in the centre prong – around the wrapped wool. Tie it as tight as you can as this is what holds the pom pom together!

Slide it off the fork carefully, cut both sides.

Fluff it out and there you go, a perfect little pom pom, made on a fork!


  • Oh this is awesome! Pom poms can be so time consuming to make, not these little gems


  • Very cute and crafty, thank you.


  • I remember doing this when I was younger


  • Loving this idea! Havent seen this done before…when I was younger we use to make popm poms at school but using to piece of cardboard.

    • Yes, my Grandma taught me how to do them with cardboard too. They were stitched onto beanies. One batch, made from different colours had the short left over yarn left on them to tie them together and we made garlands.


  • This is a fantastic little trick. Pom poms are so time consuming usually, but they’re so cute, great to have a quick tip on how to make


  • Great to know this! Thanks for sharing!


  • Its hassle free, quicker and not so costly. It promotes team work and gives satisfaction. My daughter liked it, she has been learning to knit hats.


  • Wow that is so simple and good craft for little ones. Thanks for sharing the idea.


  • another simple craft for little fingers


  • What a great activity for all to have fun with.


  • I’m doing this tomorrow!


  • This is super quick and super easy!


  • We love making pom poms here! We usually use them to make Christmas decorations. But I’d like to make a mobile out of them soon too.


  • So much easier than using a piece of cardboard!


  • That is an awesome idea! No fuss, and so easy!
