Today's DIY is a fun one to make to cheer on your favorite sports team! They're so super easy!
Start off by making the pom poms. Mine are about an inch. I don't remember the exact size of the pom pom maker I use. If you don't know how to make pom poms, I posted a tutorial yesterday on how to make pom poms using the Clover Pom Pom Maker.
I make all ten of my pom poms first.
When you tie off your pom poms and trim them, be sure to leave a long tail to sew them to your gloves.
Thread your yarn tail onto a tapestry needle.
Insert your needle into the tip of one of the glove fingers. You must use knit gloves. Be sure not to sew the fingertips together, just get the tips.
Pull the pom pom to the fingertip, then insert the needle through the center of the pom. Then insert the needle back through the pom and into the glove tip again. Do this a few times to secure the pom to the fingertip.
Bring your needle back to the fingertip. Insert into the tip and tie a square knot. Then push the needle back through the pom and cut the yarn tail even with the rest of the pom. Trim the pom as needed.
Repeat until all your poms are sewn to the fingertips, then wave those pom fingers!!
