Pom Pom Bookmarks

By: Red Heart Yarn

If you have a big reader in the house, you know that bookmarks are a hot commodity. Have your reader get to work on these super-fun Pom Pom Bookmarks. They can easily make these fun yarn crafts for kids unassisted, and they will have a great bookmark when they are done. The pom poms add a whimsical little touch to something so simple. The kids will want to make one for everyone they know. They'd make great little gifts to give loved ones as well.

Pom Pom Bookmarks


  • RED HEART® Super Saver®: 1 skein 512 Turqua, 400 Grey Heather OR 784 Bonbon Print
  • Measuring tape
  • Dinner fork or large salad fork
  • Clipboard
  • Small scissors that will cut yarn


  1. Cut 2 pieces of yarn, each 36” (91.4 cm) long.
  2. Place the center of the 2 pieces of yarn in between the center of your fork points so that half is in front of the fork and half is in back.

  3. Pull a lot of yarn out of your skein! Take the end of the yarn that is still attached to the skein and place it through the same spot in the fork, letting the end hang down as long as the other ends.

  4. Hold onto your fork with one hand, holding all the yarn ends (there are 5) as well. The yarn that is still attached to the skein should not be in your hand. Take that yarn and wrap it around the fork 30 to 50 times.

  5. Cut the end of the yarn so that it is as long as the rest of the ends.
  6. Take the ends of the yarn (there are 3 in front of the fork and 3 in back) and tie them very tightly around the wrapped yarn on your fork. Then slide the yarn off the fork.

  7. To make the pom pom, hold onto the 6 long ends of yarn, and cut through all the loops, being careful not to cut the 6 long ends. If you want a little puff instead of a pompom, then don’t cut the loops!

  8. Trim the pom pom to make it even.

  9. Place the pom pom in the clip of a clipboard, or have a friend hold it. Holding 2 pieces of yarn for each strand, braid the ends together. When you are done with your braid, tie a knot in the end and trim.
