I made my first set of yarn pom poms for my Valentines decor and I have been trying to find a place to put more ever since. They are so easy and cute. We have a vintage chalkboard hanging in our basement for when the kids want to play school or it comes in handy when we are working on sight words or math with the kids. Our basement is finished but not finished so when I can find little things to make it more comfortable and colorful I jump at the chance. Someday I need to paint, but that would mean I have to pick a color. Too many choices.... so I am waiting until the mood strikes.
1) First, I pulled out my stash of yarn. Then a fork. I know weird, you can use your fingers if you want but I preferred using a fork. I needed two hands and my kids always seem to need something in the middle of a project and fingers wrapped up in yarn can be a problem. 2) I cut a small piece of yarn and laid it in the middle of the fork, between the tines. 3) I then wrapped the yarn making sure my little piece was sticking out the top and bottom. 4) Once I wrapped A LOT of yarn around the fork I tied my yarn around the bundle. More yarn makes a fuller ball and looks nicer. 5) I pulled the yarn ball off the fork and tied the string as tight as I could. 6) Then cut all the loops and trim the strings until you get the look you want.
You could pick any colors, the choices are endless.
I love quick, fun little projects. Sometimes they have just as much impact. Have you done any small projects lately?
