how to make a pom pom for a hat! (Easy & Fast DIY) 

The truth is that making pom poms is a very fun and easy activity, you just need to get the materials you need and get to work.

Let’s see what you need here:

Essential materials:

  • A roll of wool
  • Thick cardboard (so that it looks like 2 sheets together)
  • Scissors
  • Pencil

Step by step of how to make a pom pom:

  • Step 1

    You take a CD and place it on the cardboard. Then with a pencil outline.

    When you have the circumference drawn, make a smaller one of about 3 cm in the center (here you can use a coin or a compass).

  • Step 2

    Now cut out the outer circumference and then the inner circumference. Then you make two pencil lines on one side of the inner circle and cut them out as well. 

    The result will be a kind of “C” with the cardboard.

  • Step 3

    In this step, you will wind the wool (or yarn) around the cardboard. Keep in mind that the more turns you make, the thicker the pom will be.

  • Step 4

    Then you cut the yarn wound on the cardboard in the middle (you also cut the cardboard).

  • Step 5

    Since you will have two pieces of cardboard left, you will have to join them together with a little more yarn by tying a knot in the middle of the cardboard (try to use as much yarn as you are using).

    Tie a tight knot by twisting through the cardboard “C.” What you will accomplish is to group all the wool bangs.

  • Step 6

    Finally, cut off the excess yarn and tie a couple more knots to make sure the pom pom is fully attached. 

    You can also take the scissors and cut the bangs a little bit to make them super round.
