Right after that, our family received some bad news that sent us into a spin. Everything stopped for awhile. We needed to not only take in the news but process it and form a plan of action. We then had to make it through the holidays. My project for Kelly got buried under a pile of deadlines and paperwork.
I recently cleaned out my area and found the supplies I purchased for Kelly's prize I had a chance to sit down today and make it for her.
To start I needed mini pom-poms. I had heard it was possible to create them using a fork and wanted to try it because the size would be perfect.
You start with wrapping yarn around a fork 50 times or so (depending on thickness of yarn) thicker yarn 50 thinner yarn could take up to 80-90 times.
To tie off the pom pom you want to take another piece of yarn about 12-14" long and tie the middle of the yarn. Thread the yarn from between the 2nd and 3rd prongs and up and around the pom pom. Tie it tightly in a double knot. I did this a couple of times. Each time allowed me to get it a bit tighter. You need this to be secure as it will hold the pom pom together.
Your finished pom pom will be around 1 to 1 1/2" You can use the ties to tie your pom pom onto what you want to. Or you can do like I did and glue them onto gloves. I made Kelly her very own pair of Packers pom-pom gloves.
GO BEARS errr Packers ;)
