Pom pom on a fork
It is ideal for playing with kids and showing them the world of DIY. An example of a chicken made on the basis of such a fork pom pom is here.
- Begin by winding the yarn on the fork. Use the ‘toothed’ part so that there is a small gap at the beginning of the teeth. The more yarn you wove, the thicker the pumps will be.
- Before you remove the yarn from the fork, tie the yarn in the middle to form kind of a bow. Transfer the extra piece of yarn through the hole in the fork and tie a tight knot.
- Now you can take off the yarn from the fork. Cut the loops with scissors. The first version of the pompom is ready, although it still does not look too nice.
- At the end, the pompom goes to the hairdresser, which is children’s favorite part. The idea is to cut out protruding threads and give the pompom a nice round shape.

Nothing gives more satisfaction than doing something yourself. I haven’t even thought about DIY as my hobby, I’ve just done different “projects” when it was needed. Sometimes it’s a disguise for the Masquerade Party in kindergarten. Another time, cutting out the pumpkin and baking the witch’s fingers for Haloween. Or simply organizing holiday souvenirs. Now I decided to share my realizations with you. Let’s go it together!
