Introduction: Pompom Puff Ball
Since I found out how to make a pompom, I've been making them for fun. I find them really fun to make. I really like adding different colors and patterns.
Step 1: Supplies I Used:
- Coaster(you can use something else that is a circle shape)
Step 2: Trace and Cut Out Two Circles:
I used a small coaster to trace my circles but you can use something else that is circle shaped. When you are done tracing out your circles, cut them out.
Step 3: Cut Out the Middle:
Cut a hole in the middle of the circle to make a doughnut shape. You can use something to trace it to make it easier.
Step 4: Tie Together:
Tie the cardboard doughnuts together by a string.
Step 5: Start Wrapping the String Around the Doughnuts:
Step 6: Add Another Color (this Is Optional):
You can add another color by tying a different color string to the color you were using before. Then you keep wrapping the string/yarn around the doughnuts until you want to change colors again.
*You do not have to add different colors.
Step 7: Wrap Around the Doughnut Until Thick:
Keep wrapping the string/yarn around the doughnuts until you can hardly fit the string/yarn through. You can add more colors if you want to.
Step 8: Cutting:
Cut the string/yarn at the edges of the doughnuts. Make sure to not cut the cardboard part of the doughnut.
Step 9: Tying It Together:
Tie in between the two pieces of cardboard. Make sure to tie tightly a few times. The last tie you should have a good knot.
Step 10: Rip or Cut the Cardboard:
Rip or cut the cardboard doughnuts off. Make sure to do this gently.
Step 11: Tidying Up:
Puff up your pompom an trim any too long strings/yarns.
*You can cut the long string off if you want.
You are done!
Have fun with your pompoms!
