DIY Pom Pom

What you need:
• Cardboard
• Ttwo circular items you can trace around.
• Wool
• Scissors

What you do:
•  Using the larger of your two circular items, trace out two circles on your cardboard.
• Put a smaller circle, say  in the middle of your larger circles.
• Cut out the two larger circles, then cut out the inner circles.
• Place the rings together.
•  Cut the wool into manageable lengths.
•  Hold one end on the outside of the ring and feed the other end through the hole, round the back and through the front again. Repeat this, working your way around the ring until all the cardboard is covered. As you use additional lengths, you don’t need to tie them together, just make sure the ends are on the outside, not in the middle. If it makes it easier for you, try using a large darning needle to feed the wool through.
•  Once your rings are fairly full of wool, cut the wool around the edges.
• Pass a length of wool between the two pieces of cardboard, around all the strands of wool, and tie it firmly together.
• Remove the cardboard rings.
• Trim any lengths of wool which are uneven to give your pom poms a tidy look.
