Have you ever made a pompom flower? I’m sort of obsessed with them and have been making them for years. They’re so perfect for a kid’s craft for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, or really any day at all!
Make a pompom flower in every color of the rainbow, gather them together, and present as a PomPom Bouquet to someone you love. And, bonus! They’ll last forever!
PomPom Flower Directions
For my “firecracker flower” you can use the fork method. It’s a kid friendly method. See my 2 Ways to Make Pom Pom Flowers video for the traditional pompom flower.
Yarn, lightweight/assorted colors
1. Cut a six inch piece of yarn. Tape each end to the fork.
2. Unravel 6-arm lengths of yarn in the same color.
3. Hold end of the yarn onto the fork with left hand. With the right hand, wind the entire length of yarn around the tines of the fork, using the entire strand and being careful to not cover the tape.
4. Once all of the yarn is wound, peel away the tape and take the two ends of the taped yarn-one in each hand.
5. Tie in a knot.
6. Slip the bundle off the fork.
7. With a sharp scissor, cut the loops.
8. Fluff the flower and trim if necessary.
9. Cut leaves out of the green felt. Poke the floral stem through the felt leaf (may need to make a tiny hole beforehand).
10. Push the floral stem through the PomPom. Glue if desired.
11. For the bouquet: stack desired amount of flowers together and tape the stems
