How to make a Pom Pom –the traditional way
After the program on Channel 4 with Kirstie Allsopp discovering Pom Pom makers and selling out overnight we thought we would remind you how to make Pom Pom’s with out the Clover tool.
|1. Cut two circles slightly larger than the size of your finished Pom Pom from cardboard (cereal packets are ideal). Then cut a second inner circle.|
|2. Place the two circles together and start winding wool around the templates. Until the centre is full. You can change colours of wool to create multi coloured pom poms.|
|3. Carefully cut along the outside edge of the circle to show the two layers of cardboard. Treat the pom pom with care at this stage.|
|4. Wrap a string around the centre of your pom pom between the cardboard templates , pulling the string tight and tying it well.|
|5. One finished Pom Pom! Congratulations.|
