What You'll Need

  • Small serving fork
  • Spool of baker's twine
  • Scissors

Step 1

Wrap baker's twine around the tines of a small serving fork approximately 35 times, securing the beginning of the twine under the wraps. Cut the twine from the spool.

Step 2

Cut a 12" length of baker's twine. Insert the length of twine between the center fork tines, and tie it into a single knot around the middle of the wrapped twine.

Step 3

Pull the wrapped twine off the tines of the fork. Tighten the knot around the center of the wraps and tie it again to make a double knot.

Step 4

Insert scissors through each loop on both sides of the tie, and cut through the loops to make a pom-pom. Trim the tie ends even with the pom-pom.
