Pompons can be used to liven up almost anything!

You will need:

  • Pencil
  • Something circular to draw round, e.g. spice jar, small glass
  • Stiff card
  • Scissors
  • Oddments of yarn
  • Ruler
  • Large darling needle

Steps to follow:

Step # 1

Decorate the Hats and Gloves with Pom Poms

Draw around your circular object onto the stiff card. The circle will define the final size of the pompon. Cut out 2 identical circles, and then cut a slightly smaller circle out of the center of each so that you are left with two rings. Place them on the top of each other. Wind a length of yarn into a ball, small enough to go through the hole in the middle. Start winding the yarn around the 2 ring. Threading it through the middle. Keep winding until the hole has been completely filled.

 

Step # 2

Decorate the Hats and Gloves with Pom Poms

Carefully push one blade of the scissors between the two pieces of the card and cut the yarn all the way around the outer edge of the ring.

 

Step # 3

Decorate the Hats and Gloves with Pom Poms

Once this is done, carefully separate the two cards; tie some yarn tightly around the middle of the pompon and knot. Remove the card.

 

Step # 4

Decorate the Hats and Gloves with Pom Poms

To decorate the hat, cut 6 rings of card 4cm (1 ½ in) in diameter. Following the instructions above, make 5 pompons in one color. Sew each pompon onto the end of each glove.
