I didn't notice I have a problem until my sister pointed out the increased number of times I had to vacuum in order to remove all the fluff that had been piling up in the corners.

Make these little bookmarks in any size or color. They are perfect to mark all of your favorite chapters; the grim beginning, the joyous middle bit, the love affairs, the betrayal, the bitter end.


You Will Need (5 things)

  • Knitting Yarn
  • Fork
  • Scissors
  • Paper Clips
  • Adhesive

Steps (8 steps, 25 minutes)

  1. 1

    To get started, cut and thread a piece of yarn through the middle tine of a fork.

  2. 2

    Then, start wrapping the yarn around the tines of the fork.

  3. 3

    Wrap the yarn around somewhere between 50-90 times. Cut the yarn from the ball.

  4. 4

    Using the piece of yarn previously placed inbetween the tines, tie a tight, double knot around the wrapped yarn so that it is bunched together.

  5. 5

    Slide the looped yarn off of the fork and cut the loops on either side.

  6. 6

    Trim the pom pom to give it a more circular shape.

  7. 7

    Using the two strands of yarn previously wrapped around the bunch, tie a double knot around the end of a paper clip and as close to the pom pom as possible. Cut off the ends close to the knot. Add a drop of glue for extra security.

  8. 8

    Happy bookmarking!
