Tutorial ~ Pom-Pom Scarf

In my last post, I mentioned a project that I am working on with pom-poms. At first, I was just going to make some hair accessories for Rachel, and decorate the house with them. Just like the picture below...

Than all of a sudden the idea to make a pom-pom scarf hit me. It is super easy and inexpensive (just like most of my other projects), I only used two balls of yarn. That's it!
Of course, this is for my 7 years old girl. If you want to make one for yourself, you will probably need more yarn.

{You will need}

Red and pink yarn one of each
2 - 17" red ribbons
Red thread

Pom-pom maker

{How To}

1. First, Make pom-poms. I used pom-pom makers to make my pom-poms as I shared in a different post. You can make them with different methods as well. I made 32 red, pink and mix of red & pink pom-poms. When you tie the middle of the pom-poms, make sure that you use long yarn (about 10" to 12") and don't cut it off. You will need that yarn to put the pom-poms together.

2. I put the pom-poms together just like when you make flower lei (have you done it as a little girl?). To start up, combine two pom-poms together. Use the picture as a guide.

3. Keep adding pom-poms in the same manner.

Then, it will look like this...

4. Tie the end and add ribbons on both ends. Then fold the ends to tack it in and sew it securely. I treated the other ends of the ribbons with fray check.

5. Done!

I think this will be so cute with different color of yarn. This one happened to be the perfect color for V - day, but, I know Rachel will love it for a long time.




I hope you enjoyed my tutorial; have a happy Valentine's Day!

  3. I love the Scarf idea. I make pom-poms using the Clover Pom Pom Maker which is quick and easy.
    It is also a good activity for senior care programs.
