D.i.y Pom Pom bookmarks


Lately I've been super stoked about returning to school in the Spring. Mostly because it'll be my last semester before I graduate! But I also love school supply shopping and preparing for the first day of school. Nothings better then a new set of pens, notebooks, or a backpack. I hate that all my school books are all starting to blend in, so I figured a pom pom organization system is the best way to go. Each color goes with a certain subject, making it easy to find in a messy backpack. This'll probably make me want to read through my books too! These of course are perfect for regular non-school actually interesting books. 

Supplies
#1. White elastic 
#2. Sharp scissors 
#3. Your favorite yarn
#4. Needle & white thread (Not shown).
#5. Book 
#6. 15 minutes of your time.


Step one: Wrap the yarn around two fingers. The more times you go around the bigger your pom will be. I went about 50x, basically till my fingers turned blue.


 Step two: Cut a long piece of yarn and pass it through your fingers. Once the yarn is facing your palm,  try and make a secure tie, If you have a helping hand lying around go get him or her to do this for you (Not necessary, just convenient ).



Step three: This is what your pom pom should look like. It is tightly knotted where my fingers were, and looks like the cutest bun! 


Step four: Place your scissors inside of folded portion, and cut it up. Your pom should then look like the photo below, one terrible hair cut.


Step five: Now it's time to make your pom actually look like a pom pom. Even out all of the strings, and smooth it out as much as possible. Remember not to cut the long thread you used to tie your pom. You will need it later on.


Now its time for the elastic portion!


Step six: Wrap the white elastic around your book making sure its as stretched out as possible. Once you snip the elastic, you will then sew the two cut pieces together. I hand sewed mine vertically. 


Step seven: Tie your pom pom onto the sewn portion of the elastic. This way your hiding the stitch your made! Which means you can do a crappy job. Once you make a secure knot onto the elastic, cut off the two long threads to the size of the other threads. Place in book and your good to go!



Or try it out with your school books! Also don't forget to enter my giveaway it ends this friday!


Cheers!

    Cute bookmark! When I make pompoms I make sure the yarn is 100% wool and after cutting them even I steam them over boiling water. This make the twist of the yarn open and the pompom looks better.
