What You'll Need:

  • big circle (like a big roll of tape)
  • small circle (like a small roll of tape)
  • yarn
  • scissors
  • marker
  • cardboard

How It's Made:

  1. Trace two big circles on cardboard and cut them out.
  2. Lay the circles on top of each other and trace a small circle in the middle.
  3. Cut out the small circle leaving an opening.
  4. Keeping the open cardboard circles on top of each other, wrap yarn around them.
  5. When you're done, tie the end piece to the bit left from when you started wrapping.
  6. Cut through the yarn following the curve of the circle.
  7. Once cut, tie a knot around your whole pompom by going between the two cardboard circles.
  8. Removed the cardboard pieces, and trim and fluff your pompom.
