How to Make Fork Pom Poms

It has been a while now since we made these super cute and simple little Fork Pom Poms. We LOVE pom poms in our house  (we have so many Pom Pom Crafts & Ideas for you) and I love trying out different ways to make them and seeing which way is easiest for the kids (see our full list how to make a pom pom techniques here). I confess for KIDS a pom pom maker really is great, though a rectangular piece of card also works… as do the traditional cardboard circles. Today, I want to share with you the fork pom pom making method – you can actually use your fingers to do this method too. So these can be easily made any time, any place!

How To Make PomPoms Using a Fork

To make your fork pom poms… all you need is a fork (really?!), some wool (you never!) and a pair of scissors.

Make a PomPom using a Fork

Cut a piece of string and place along your fork – I added some bakers twin 1) so you can see it better and 2) because the wool I used is very soft and when tying a knot breaks easily. This will be the piece you use to knot your fork pom pom securely!
