You need: pink yarn, pink pipe cleaners, scissors, and cardboard

Step 1: Making the Pompom
Slide the scissors between the circles, cutting the yarn all around the edge. Slowly pull the two circles apart, and knot a piece of yarn at the middle. Leave the ends long, to act as legs.
Step 2: Adding the Neck
Cut the pipe cleaner to the size you want the flamingo neck to be. Slide a piece of pipe cleaner in the hole inside the pompom before removing the cardboard circles. Trim the pompom where necessary. Bend the neck of the flamingo with your hands. Done!
