How to make pom-poms in the form of fruit

How to make fruits from pompoms with your own hands

Today's project is dedicated to making small fruit toys from pompoms with our own hands. It will be strawberry, kiwi, watermelon and lemon. Such pompoms are very simple to do. With such pom-poms, even children of primary school age will cope. In addition, such soft and fluffy fruit will be an excellent addition to the interior.

You will need:

  • Woolen threads (red, green, white, black, brown, pink);
  • a piece of thick cardboard (best of all from the box);
  • scissors.

Instructions

From a piece of thick cardboard, cut out two identical blanks (bases) that resemble a horseshoe or a magnet in shape. Such bases combined together give only half of the fruit. Thus, for a whole fruit, one more base will be needed. By the way, small diagrams in some figures show schematically the arrangement of threads and layers of fruit. We hope that this will make the task a little easier!

Strawberries

Prepare woolen threads of red, green and white.

  1. Wrap the red yarn backbone for the pom-pom. On top of the red yarn, add a few turns of white yarn in different places (preferably nonsymmetrically).
  2. At one end, add a few turns of green yarn. Pay attention, the green thread needs to be wound with the allowance (the coils should be of a larger diameter). Repeat the steps 1 and 2 and make a second half of the strawberry.
  3. Slightly move the tips of one piece and insert the tips of the second half of the strawberry between them. Note that the same color should be on the same side.
  4. Use scissors and make a cut between the blanks along the outer edge. Hold your finger on the thread from the inside so that they do not crumble. When you make a cut - stretch the thread between the two bases and gently begin to tighten the knot. Simultaneously with the tightening of the assembly, pull out the cardboard bases. Tightly tighten the knot to tie the pompon together.
  5. Using scissors, give the pompon a shape of a strawberry with green leaves.

Kiwi

Prepare woolen threads of white, black, green and brown.

  1. With a white yarn, wrap the base a little.
  2. When winding the next layer - alternate white and black yarn (at approximately equal distances).
  3. Wrap the green threads so that the white and black threads are not visible.
  4. Wrap all the previous layers with a brown thread.
  5. Use scissors and make a cut between the blanks along the outer edge. Hold your finger on the thread from the inside so that they do not crumble. When you make a cut - stretch the thread between the two bases and make a tight knot in the narrow part of the winding to tie the pompon together.
  6. Using a pair of scissors, give the pompon the shape of an evenly cut halved kiwi.

Watermelon

Prepare woolen threads of black, pink, white, dark green and light green color.

  1. Wrap the pink yarn backing for the pompon. On top of the pink yarn, add a few turns of black yarn in different places (preferably asymmetrically).
  2. When winding the next layer, use a dark green and light green thread in a chaotic manner.
  3. Wrap the white yarn backing so that the previous colors are not visible.
  4. Layer of pink yarn make two (or even three) times thicker than the previous - this will be the pulp of watermelon.
  5. Use scissors and make a cut between the blanks along the outer edge. Hold your finger on the thread from the inside so that they do not crumble. When you make a cut - stretch the thread between the two bases and gently begin to tighten the knot. At the same time, with the tightening of the knot, pull out the cardboard bases. Tightly tighten the knot to tie the pompon together.
  6. Using scissors, give the pompon the shape of a triangular slice of watermelon.

Lemon

Prepare woolen threads of white and yellow color.

  1. With a white yarn, wrap the base a little. Try to keep the yarn in one line.
  2. The next layer of yellow yarn is wound in such a way that white yarn remains visible in the center and sides.
  3. Again, take the white thread and close all yellowness. Turn the threads of the yarn as tightly as possible so that the yarn is placed in one line.
  4. Center a few turns of yellow yarn.
  5. Wrap the yellow thread all the previous layers. On top of the white winding, make one more - yellow.
  6. Use scissors and make a cut between the blanks along the outer edge. Hold your finger on the thread from the inside so that they do not crumble. When you make a cut - stretch the thread between the two bases and make a tight knot in the narrow part of the winding to tie the pompon together.
  7. Using scissors, give the pompon the shape of an evenly cut half of the lemon.
