    Step 1

    If all attemps to make pom poms have left you with little mops like this one, then continue reading.

    There are only 3 points in making really round & fluffy pom poms:
    1. use paper disks
    2. prepare to use a lot of yarn ( a lot!)
    3. a secret tool!

    Step 2

    Cut two identical disks from cardstock with a round opening at their center.

    Cut several meters of yarn (not the whole length you are going to need for the pom pom, because it will become all tangled up when passing it through the center hole).

    Tie a secure knot at any point, securing the two disks together.

    Start wrapping the yarn around the disks, passing it through the center hole.

    When you reach the end of the yarn, tie a knot and begin with a new long piece of yarn.
