Make it! Yarn pom pom!!

As you all know, there are hundreds of ways to make a pom pom!!!!
But I found this one and I would like to share with you, because is really simple but less common!

You'll need :
  • some colourful yarn
  • a pair of scissors
  • a ruler
  • a pencil
  • a tapestry needle
  • thick cardboard
First thing to do is : cut a rectangle 15cmx9cm from the thick cardboard, with a central opening (1cmx9cm) distant 3cm from both vertical sides and 4cm from both horizontal sides

After cutting the sides and the central opening, you will have (back and front pictures!) :

Now take a ball of yarn and start to wrap the thread around the cardboard

And after some wrapping you'll have something like this

 At the end (you decide the thickness of your pom pom, just choosing how many times you would wrap the yarn around the cardboard!), from one extreme of the opening to the other one, you'll see

Take the scissors and cut the yarn

 Thread a new yarn (I use a different colour just to show you better the next steps)

Let the needle pass trough the right slit (B)

pass the needle now through slit (A)

and in the front you'll observe the following

Ok! Put apart the needle and make one knot (just one!) to secure the wrapped yarn

With the scissors, begin to cut the top of your pom pom to-be (vision from the font)

from back side (upside down, sorry!)

Cut the bottom now

Your pom pom is almost freee!!!

Make one more knot in the middle of your work, pulling thightly the yarn but trying not to break it!

Cut the cardboard from both sides to the slits A and B

Separate the two cardboard pieces, so that your pom pom is finally free!!

Trim and enjoy it!!!
