I am trying to look up what these are, to no avail:

Fuzz balls

Note: this was the closest thing I could find

They are balls of wool, cut into small pieces, with a rubber band stuck in the middle holding it together.

The closest thing I could describe them as is "fuzz ball", but that's too general. I'm trying to create one. I need to search a tutorial for it but that is difficult when I am not sure what this is.

  • Is it a solid sphere? Or do they have a hole through the middle like a fuzzy doughnut?

  • @Erica It is divided into two sides because of the rubber band, and there is a slight hole. May 22, 2016 at 1:03

    Do you honestly have any reason to believe that this is related to arts and crafts? They look like a finished product to me.

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this doesn't seem to be related to arts and crafts and the image is only an approximation, not the actual item. Please consider editing the question to explain why this is A&C related and include a photo of the actual item you're talking about.

    You have changed the question slightly now by changing the image. If the old image is not what you wanted they why use it? This current image is also just taken from the internet as well. At this point I would like to know what you plan on using this knowledge for because I don't know where to go with this now.

These are just pom poms on elastic bands. Those particular ones appear to be made from rabbit fur. That is, according to the less that useful description given from the site where this image came from.

Page appears to be in Chinese Simplified and that is what I got from Google Translate

The ones pictured are used as decoration or as an accessory.

Coincidentally we had another user ask about how to make those recently. Have a look at the answers to this question and you should get an idea of what to do. The only thing that is different is the presence of the elastic band. If you do want that it would just be a matter of attaching that into the pom pom as it is being created.

  • My first thought was scrunchie too, but couldn't figure out how that might relate to crafts! :)

  • @Erica The thing is you could add all kinds of materials to crafts where that is no their reason for being. Intent would be useful in that case. In this case the answer is the same.

  • I don't believe this is it. I'll take a picture of one I found. May 22, 2016 at 23:50
  • @Peanut I have updated my answer based on information that was changed in the question as well as comments. If something is still wrong please try to avoid changing the question too much as it will invalidate answers. You can also come into chat or ask in meta if you are not sure. Hopefully this will help you.
