I used my Clover Pom Pom maker to make that pom and I think it’s one of my best yet. Poms make me crazy but using the pom maker tool helps for sure!

So even if you don’t have a Pom Pom maker there are plenty of diy ways to do it!

My friend, Tasha at StardustGoldCrochet has a fab tutorial on how to make one with great, step by step photos!

Check out the tutorial here->Make The Perfect Pom Pom

For this long, floppy pom I used a piece of cardboard about 2″ wide to wrap my yarn around.
