These are an old favorite of mine! As a child, I used to obsessively trim the pompom in an attempt to make it a perfect sphere. As you might imagine, I never did make a perfect one. I recall trimming it so much that the pompom ended up about the size of a marble with a pile of yarn clippings on the table. Since then, I have learned to embrace being less than perfect and now appreciate the aesthetic of some wonky pompoms. Make your very own pompoms as part of your Christmas decor—you choose the color, the type of yarn, and the size. For more fun, try making multi-color poms with 2 or more colors of yarn.
