Step 1: 1
First thread the short string threw the slot between the middle two fork prongs
Step 2: 2
Then hold the end of the wool from the ball and wrap the other round the fork until it's in a very plump clump then move to the next step
Step 3: 3
When desired thickness and plumpness of pompom to be is reached take the front end of the short string and pull it over to the back of the fork thru the middle prong on the other side of the "pompom"to tie a tight half reef knot ( make sure you only tie a half knot though )
Step 4: 4
Pull the tied up wool of the fork and tighten the half knot, once tight complete the reef knot and cut of the untied ends of the short tying string
Step 5: 5
Cut the the loops of wool so the POMPOMS looks fuzzy and roll it in your hands to spread it out. ( assuming it doesn't fall apart because you didn't tie your knot tight enough) you should now have a square-ish POMPOM
Step 6: 6
Trim the POMPOM into a circle and
You have a POMPOM
Step 7: Use It
Stitch em to pillows corners or the edges of throw rugs or use them as buttons their is no end to the infinite possibility s for the almightely fluffy POMPOM
