The clover pom pom maker comes in several sizes and can be purchased at your local craft store. I got the large pom pom maker from Michael’s with my 40% off coupon.
The package comes with detailed instructions, but you can follow my directions if you want to see how the pom pom maker works before buying it.
The pom pom maker comes apart into two pieces.
To make a pom pom, put the two pieces together and line them up.
Next, open two of the arcs.
Wrap yarn around the arcs.
Attach yarn to maker using a simple loop knot.
Wrap yarn tightly around arc.
Continue until the entire arc is covered with yarn.
Trim yarn with several spare inches.
Tie yarn into a knot to secure.
Repeat on the other side.
Cut yarn right down the middle of the arc.
Be careful not to move the pom pom maker too much after you’ve cut the yarn. It’s loose at this point.
Wrap a piece of strong thread around the middle.
Tie a knot in the thread and pull tight.
Tie the other way to make a square knot.
Make sure you pull the string as tight as you can. If the string is loose, yarn could fall out of the pom pom.
Trim the string.
Lift arc on each side.
Remove one side of the maker and lift off pom pom.
Tuck the end of the hanging string under the pom pom string.
Tie in a double knot.
Fluff yarn into a ball and trim off stray pieces.
