How to Make Mini Pom Poms


Isn't that a cute wrapping job?? There are a few reasons I really like it. 1) I'm a fan of simple/organic-type wrapping (i.e. yarn, jute string & brown paper wrapping), 2) It's cheaper, 3) It's original and stands out

It's also very easy to do!

Here are all the materials you need to make the pom-poms:
yarn, cardboard, scissors, and anything to trace circles (I used tape, a tea cannister, and a glue stick)

1. Trace a couple of different sizes of circles (two of each), and cut them out. Then trace small inner circles (I used a glue stick) and cut them out too.

2. Cut yarn - I used approx. 5 arms lengths (finger to finger).

3. Put two cardboard circles of the same size side-by-side and line up the edge of the string with the inside edge of the circles.

4. Start wrapping the string around the circle (through the inside edge and around the outside edge)

5. Continue until the circle is completely covered.

6. Make a space between the two cardboard circles you put together initially.

7. Place your scissors between the two slits in order to cut the outside edge of the yarn circles.

8. Cut around the entire circle. Be careful not to let go of the strings in the middle or the yarn will unravel from the cardboard.

9. Put an additional piece of yarn between the two cardboard pieces and wrap it around.

10. Tie the additional piece of string around the centre of the yarn between the cardboard pieces

11. Pull apart the cardboard

12. Ta-Da! Cute decorative pom-pom. Repeat with more colours and sizes of cardboard circles.

Here are a couple of presents that I beautified with colourful pom-poms :)
