How much fun can you have with odd bits of yarn?
Emma, yes my friend Emma is to blame. If she hadn't given me a pompom maker to try out this would never have happened. Talk about obsessional.
make as many pompoms as your scrap yarn will allow using the different sized pompom makers.
I crocheted different lengths of basic chain between my pompoms. You could sew them to ribbon if you prefer.
if you need to trim the pompoms, then trim them.
