I know, I’m not a cat blogger… but I consider myself a mommy blogger and that’s kind of the same thing, right? I know a lot of my readers also have cats that they love on though and will appreciate a fun, easy, cheap craft that they can make for their cat! Our cat, affectionately known as Miss Kitty, loves chasing and pouncing on her toys. She also has a fascination with yarn, as many cats do, but of course I don’t want her chasing a whole ball of yarn around the house because that will quickly become a mess. That’s why I make her these pom pom balls made out of yarn to bat around the house. When one gets lost (as her toys often do), I quickly make her another. They cost only what a ball of yarn costs, and one ball of yarn will make… well I’m not exactly sure because I haven’t run out yet but it’s a lot.
All you need for this craft is yarn and scissors. Older kids will enjoy helping make these as well.
Here’s what you do:
Take your yarn and start wrapping it around two fingers. Wrap around 80-90 times.
Carefully slide off of fingers but keep hole in loop. Using a shorter piece of yarn (4-6 inches is fine) go through the middle of your loop, and then tie a very tight knot.
Take your scissors and go through the middle of the loop on the opposite side of where you tied the knot, and cut all the pieces of yarn.
Now you have the base of your pom pom but it might look a little bit funky. Trim down your ends and try to even them out until you have a pom pom!
