So excited about todays post! I’ve been working on these multicolored pom poms for quite some time now. They are an easy and relatively mindless activity to do while watching Netflix. But don’t be fooled…to get such a compact and perfect shape these poms take time. I probably spent around 30-40 mins on a single pom. So get yourself a good pair of scissors and get to crafting!

*There are many ways to make pom poms. I love using an embroidery hoop because it’s simple, fast, and the flat edges are great to keep the yarn from sliding around too much. However, the multicolored effect will work with whatever method you choose!
It’s hard to show in pictures how to form a pom. You could technically cut any shape you want. For an egg shape, you’ll want to keep the bottom more rounded with a rounded point on top. Keep going until you reach your desired shape. Trim slowly at the end so you don’t lose too much yarn evening out a large cut.
