yarn pom pom on a fork

I needed something for the top of a party hat I’m making for our Wee One’s 1st Birthday.

I ended up using a yarn pom-pom that I made using a fork.

Here’s what I did: I wrapped some yarn around a large serving fork approximately 60 times, then tied across all threads down the middle between the fork tines. After tying in a tight knot I carefully slipped it off the fork then cut the edges on both sides, and trimmed the strings so they would be even.
