You will need: pom-pom maker (Clover), scissors, yarn or fine wool in different colours.
As you can see pom-pom maker can be divided into two parts; to combine them you have to insert the pin of the first half into the central hole of the second half.
We used two yarns of different colours. Wind yarns firmly from one end to the other as you can see in the photo.
Finish winding the yarns around the first arm.
Close the first arm and wind the yarn around the second arm. Don't cut the yarns.
Keep on winding the yarns around the second arm firmly.
Align the arms.
Begin cutting the yarns at the gap between the arms.
Keep on cutting the yarns.
This image shows the result of this step.
Tie firmly the pom-pom at the gap between the arms and make a double knot.
Separate the two halves and remove your pom-pom from pom-pom maker.
Fluff to shape and then cut loose ends.
Your pom-pom is ready!
