Making your own pom-poms is helpful because you can match the yarn to your project. It's also a good way to use leftover yardage. Wherever you use them, these fluffy accessories add fun! You can buy pom-pom makers at most craft stores and if you plan on making lots of pom-poms, it might be worth investing in one or more in different sizes. But when you're making just a few, you can create your own pom-pom maker with a piece of cardboard. Use the lids and other round items to trace circles onto the cardboard.

A pom-pom — also spelled pom-pon , pompom or pompon — is a decorative ball or tuft of fibrous material. The term may refer to large tufts used by cheerleaders , or a small, tighter ball attached to the top of a hat, also known as a bobble or toorie. Pom-poms may come in many colors, sizes, and varieties and are made from a wide array of materials, including wool , cotton , paper , plastic , thread , glitter and occasionally feathers.
