Find out how you can use cardboard to make your own pom poms using this easy, step-by-step tutorial.
Add the finishing touches to your project with a fun, fuzzy pom pom! They’re quick to make, and perfect for using up your yarn scraps. Get playful!
Cut 2 donut-shaped circles out of the cardboard, with a 9cm outer diameter and a 4cm inner diameter.
Hold the 2 pieces of cardboard together, and cut a slit into the circle.
Keeping the 2 pieces of cardboard held together, wrap the yarn around the ring until all the circle is full. You can make a multicoloured pom pom by wrapping different shades of yarn.
Carefully cut through the strands of yarn between the 2 pieces of cardboard.
Cut a length of yarn, and tie it tightly between the 2 circles.
Remove the cardboard, and give your pom pom a trim to tidy it up!
Top Tip: Change the size of the finished pom pom by cutting bigger, or smaller, cardboard circles!
