10 easy steps - how to make a DIY Pom Pom:
1. Open the maker
Open the two sides of your pom pom maker included in your pom pom maker kit and place them on top of each other, bobbles into holes, to make a W shape like below.
2. Start Wrapping
Hold a piece of yarn under your left thumb and then using the other hand wrap the yarn over and under, filling one side of the pom pom maker.
3. Keep Going
Once you have filled this side, then pass the yarn under and over to the other side of the pom pom maker and repeat step 2.
4. Cut The Yarn
Once both sides of the makers are full, cut the yarn off and tuck it into the pom pom.
5. Join Both Halves
Join the two halves of the pom pom maker together to make a full circle and clip in place.
6. Prepare More Yarn
Cut a separate piece of yarn approx 15cm long, you will need this later.
7. Cut The Pom Pom
Hold on tightly to the centre of the pom pom using your thumb and finger either side of the maker, whilst cutting around the circumference of the pom pom.
8. Tie it Together
Tie the 15cm piece of yarn (you cut previously) around the circumference of the maker and pull really tight. Secure with three double knots to make sure it does not come undone.
9. Release Your Pom Pom!
Unclip the pom pom maker and release your pom pom.
10. Fluff The Pom Pom
Roll the pom pom in your hand and then trim to make a nice round fluffy pom!
