Hello Crafters!

I really love Pom-Poms! they are so cute and are great additions to almost any craft. I have recently been making pom-poms for my knit beanies.

I use the Clover Pom Pom Maker, it is the fastest easiest way to make a pom-pom.

I have used many other DIY methods, my hands (great for big loose pom-poms), a fork (which is great for small pom-poms), card board, which I will never ever, ever use again, but is a way to make a pom-pom.

Though for the price of the Clover Pom Pom Maker, and the ease of use, I cannot think of making pom-poms ever again without this little maker, it is so very, very wonderful!

There may be other brands that sell similar makers, I just happen to have the Clover one, I haven’t tried any others, as this was the first one I purchased and I am super happy with it.

Here is a little photo tutorial on how to use this little magical pom-pom maker!
