So, you’ve made some pom poms for your project and want to make use of it, to decorate it etc, but…. the size is too big or you want it in another shape other than round. You need to trim it, of course.
Trimming needs skill and it is just like a hair dresser’s job. Lack of skill may cause over trimming and unevenness, the more you trim it and try to get to the right shape you want, the pom pom become smaller and smaller. The worst part is, after hours spent in trimming, you still can’t get the shape you want and the original pom pom is snipped beyond recognition, you get frustrated and give-up. What a waste!!! I have gone through this (I am not a hair dresser) so I know what you’re going to face with “the trim”. I found a good tip after some researches. The following tutorial will show you how to trim your pom pom to your desired shape and size easy and fast 🙂 to me, it never failed!!!! I made this trimmed pom pom into pom pom hair barrettes.
