My daughter wanted to "spruce" up her Easter basket this year. So, we made a homemade pom pom and added pretty yarn. Read below to dress up your own basket!

Materials you'll need

Step-by-step tutorial

  • Step 1

    Start by grabbing your pom pom winder. (This one's from Kiwi Crate!) Tie some colored yarn in a knot on one end.

  • Step 2

    Next, keep winding the yarn around the winder. The more yarn you use the bigger the pom pom will be.

  • Step 3

    My daughter said she was getting tired so I wound the rest of the yarn for her. She told me to stop here.

    Adult time! Take the yarn that is hanging and loop it around the middle and tie a knot so that the yarn almost looks split in half.
