Things you'll need:
- Sharp scissors
Step 1: Choose your colours!
Step 2: Prepare your Pom Pom Maker!
These are super easy to use so don’t worry. You can also get them in many different sizes. We’ve used a medium sized one for our garland, but the larger ones are perfect to create crib mobiles or key rings! The little ones are great to make a key ring or hanging decoration with three different coloured pom poms
Step 3: Wrap away!
Begin to wrap the yarn in your chosen colour around one side of the maker. Make sure the plastic is totally covered by pushing down the yarn as you go along. The more layers you create while wrapping, the thicker and fluffier your
