Step 1: 

Begin with a piece of yarn about 6 inches long.  Slip it through the middle tine of the fork.

Step 2: 

Use a piece of tape to secure the end of the yarn to the handle of the fork.  You will use this piece to tie off your yarn.

Step 3: 

Hold your thumb at the widest part of the fork.  Begin wrapping yarn around the fork.  

Step 4: 

Continue wrapping around the fork approximately 50-60 times.  Be careful not to have your yarn move up into the narrow part of the tines of the fork.

Step 5: 

Cut the end of your yarn.

Step 6: 

Remove the tape from your yarn and pull both ends up tightly around your yarn.  Tie it off.

Step 7: 

Cut through all of the loops and remove it from your fork.

Step 8: 

Use your scissors to shape the pom pom.
