After discovering how easy it was to make heart pompoms James suggested the most awesome idea: strawberry pompoms!!

This is what I ended up with on my first try, with a little tweaking it could be perfect 😀

Strawberry Pompom Tutorial

What you need:

  • Red yarn
  • White yarn
  • Green yarn
  • Something to make it on, I’m using an eyeshadow palette
  • Small sharp scissors

Wrap the green yarn around one end of the palette. This is going to form the leaves at the top of the strawberry so only use a bit of yarn and keep it down one end like this:

Using the white yarn wrap it around the other end of the palette a couple of times:

Tie some yarn around the middle and leave a tail if you want to hang it somewhere.
