How to make a pompon

Hi guys!

Today I want to share with you how to make a pompon with only 2 pieces of cardboard, some yarn and a pair of scissors 😊

So here it is, you need to cut 2 rings that are the same size in cardboard.

Then you put both rings together and tie the yarn on the rings. Make sure that your yarn ball is small enough to fit through the centre of your ring.

Your next step is to wrap your yarn around your ring. The thicker you wrap it the bigger your pompon will be.

This is the hardest step, you need to cut the pompon. Put your scissors in between the two rings and make sure you hold on to your yarn while you cut. Then use a thread of yarn in between the rings to tie your pompon together.


Your last step is to tidy up and make your pompon more even by cutting off the threads that stick out.  

Here it goes! Your pompon is finished! Hope this was clear, don’t hesitate to ask me if a step is unclear. You can use pretty much any type of cardboard.
