POM POMS


There are a few different techniques to make them. Here we show you the traditional cardboard method. 

You’ll need:

  • A cereal packet
  • A pencil
  • Your yarn
  • A pair of scissors

Look at our step by step photo instructions below for help with how to make pompoms.

STEP 1

Draw a couple of circles on your cardboard and cut them out. Cut a matching round hole in each one – a smaller circle makes a smaller pompom, and a larger a bigger one!

STEP 2

Lay the two cards flat on top of each other. Start to wrap a first layer of yarn around the card, covering the entire card. You might need to hold it quite firmly until it’s all in place.

STEP 3

Carry on wrapping layers of yarn around the card until it’s thick and the central circle is filled up. You may need to use a large needle when it gets too small for your fingers!

STEP 4

Insert your scissors between the two pieces of card, and cut the wrapped yarn all the way around the edge. Wrap a long piece of yarn between the two card circles and tie tightly.

STEP 5

Once you’re happy the yarn is tied firmly together, cut away the cardboard. Keep your long threads so that you can use them to attach your pompom later.

STEP 6

Use your scissors to tidy up your pompom and cut away any irregular bits (not the long threads). Repeat as required!
