1. Get a skein of yarn (170 yards) You’ll be using it all.


2. Cut out some cardboard doughnuts . These are 7” in diameter with a 5” diameter cut out.


3. Sandwich some yarn inbetween the two pieces and leave the tails out, those will be used to cinch all the yarn together. Wrap the rest of the yarn all around the circles. Over and over and over and over. Be sure to leave the tails out!

4. Grab a scissors and cut the yarn along the edges of the cardboard. Don’t snip the tails!


5. The tails will now be used to tie all the yarn together. Pull it tight and tie a knot. Use your muscles!


6. Slip the cardboard pieces off, trim her up, and you’ve got a lovely and massive pom-pom!
