This sew easy craft is the perfect way to keep warm and show your team spirit for your favorite pro or school team!! I made these for my God-Daughter's Cheer leading team. Orange and Brown are her school colors and the team earns points during competitions when the crowd is inspired by their cheer spirit and team colors in the audience.
It is going to blow her away as a bonus stocking stuffer!!
So we all wear them while in the crowd and the bonus is they keep your hands warm too. *smiles*
Stretch Gloves [you can get for $1 at the dollar store]
Medium #4 Yarn [color of your choice]
Embroidery Thread [match the color of glove]
Needle Threader [good one like the metal one shown in photo]
Step 1: Create your Pom Pom's using a standard kitchen fork
Wrap yarn around fork [I went around 25 times]
Then I take the tail and bring it around through the middle of the 4 fork prongs
Wrap it over and pull through the bottom, this will create a loop, cut the loop but leave a 4 inch tail
Take your tail and keep wrapping 2 times around from the top between the fork prongs and pulling it through the bottom
Using your needle threader go under the pulled wraps and grab the tail of your yarn
Leaving a loop, thread the yarn tail through the loop
Pull tightly to create a knot and tight center for the pom pom
