POM POM SUPPLIES
* Piece of Cardboard
MAKE A CARDBOARD TEMPLATE
Cut a piece of cardboard - the height should be the desired pompom size. The width of cardboard should be at least the same size or a little larger. For example, if you want a 3 1/2" pom pom, cut the cardboard 3 1/2" high and a little more than 3 1/2" wide.
Then cut a rectangular slot in the center of the cardboard.
PREPARING AND WRAPPING YARN
Cut a piece of yarn about 10 to 12 inches long and place this yarn in the rectangular slot.
Start wrapping yarn around the cardboard template. The more times the yarn is wrapped around the cardboard, the fuller and thicker the finished pom-pom will be.
TYING THE POM POM
Take the length of yarn that was inserted in the slot and tie it into a knot around the wrapped yarn.
To make sure the pom pom stays secure, cut another length of yarn tie it around the wrapped yarn again. This time you will probably be able to tie it tighter.
TRIMMING AND SHAPING
Cut the loops.
Trim the pom pom to make it nice and round.
VOILA! A gorgeous, yarn pom pom is complete.
