DIY Pom pom flowers

DIY pom pom flowers are rad, all you need is yarn/wool, a fork, pipe-cleaners amd scissors. Follow our simple instructions and you’ll have an everlasting bunch in no time.

Tip: these make a super-cute decoration to slip into the ribbon on a wrapped pressie.

How to make DIY pom pom flowers:

  • Place a pipe-cleaner along one side of the fork.

  • Wrap the yarn around the fork and pipe-cleaner – this will form the pom pom flower.

  • Continue to wrap yarn the length of the top part of the fork until you have covered it entirely several times (25-30 wraps). 

    • Twist the pipe-cleaner around the yarn.

    • Take some green yarn and knot around the base of the flower.

    • Remove the wrapped yarn from the fork and cut the looped ends of the flower yarn.

    • Cut a piece of green yarn and wrap around where the pipe-cleaner is folded so it becomes the ‘stem’. Knot and add some glue to hold in place, if required.
    • Trim and fray the end of the yarn to give a full look.

    • Repeat the process to make an everlasting bunch ; )
