- Wrap the wool around the outer two prongs until it forms a nice fat bundle.
- Cut the end of the wool and using a new small piece or a little thread, bunch the wool together and tie really tightly so it is secure. Do this in the middle of the pom pom in between the prongs to make sure it’s central and not lopsided.
- Slide your wool bundle off the fork and cut all the loops. Be sure to get them all – some will be hiding down near the middle.
- Trim all the extra long straggly bits so it is big, round and beautiful.
These seriously take less than 5mins to make and once you’ve got them you’ll be amazed how many things you think of to use them for. Present wrapping instead of bows, garlands to hang in the windows or around the mantel, glued to hair clips for a bit of fun and so on and so forth. I got a bit carried away last time I made these and now I’m just storing the extras in a jar for future use – and they’re cute just sitting on the shelf!
