This is a much simpler way to make pom-poms than you might have learnt. Cardboard circles are dispensed with, and instead you just need a hand. You can make all sorts of sizes and colours.



Pom-pom


Time: 10 minutes
Age: 5-10's, Over 10's
Level: Easy

Materials
Ball of wool
Scissors
Your hand



Blue wool


Method
Pre-cut a couple of strands of wool about 30cm long. Put them to one side.
Using the main ball of wool, wind the wool about 50-100 times around your hand. To make smaller pom-poms, use fewer fingers. You might need fewer winds for the smaller pom-poms, but for a big one on all your fingers, wind about 100 times. It will make a fluffy pom-pom. Keep your fingers slightly apart so you can get the wool off easily, and so your circulation isn't cut off.

Slide the wool off your fingers.

Wrap the pre-cut wool around the middle of the pom-pom and pull tight, like a belt. Once you have done it with one string, do it with the other one too, as you will be able to pull it more tightly.
