I remember when I was young, my brother and I were taught how to make those cute pompoms. Today, I decided I would make a quick tutorial on how to make those little pompoms. Because let's be realistic, we can use them for anything! As decoration on a Christmas tree, on a hat, as a little animal by adding eyes and give it as a gift to a little cousin or brother.
Let your imagination free!!!!
-----> I know that it seems pretty long but it's actually very very easy. Just give it a try!!! :D
If any question --> comment box :)
Gather your material
With the help of tape or any rounded material such as a CD, draw two circles on the cardboard just like on this picture.
It should look something like this
Cut them like so
Put the two pieces one against the other
Now what I did was to cut plenty of pieces of thread because it is hard to make the spool go through the small hole-
All you need to do is the make a knot and start putting the thread through the small hole and continue this process all around the cardboard until it's thick enough.
Also, if the pieces of thread you've used are finished, just let it like so and start a new thread around by putting a knot at the beginning.
By the end, this is what it should look like =)
You don't need to make a knot when you're done. It is secure enough just like this
Now, what you should do is start cutting around the circles, just between the two of them so that you end up with this----> (see picture below)
cut a small section of thread from the spool.
Separate the two pieces of cardboard and in between, put the piece of thread. Turn it around few times and then secure it with a knot.
Now remove the cardboard by destroying it, cutting it or whatever you feel like doing, just get rid of it.
VoilÃ !!! You're done :)
